The Essence of Flype

From STUCO to the Theater Department

The first thing that could be seen when either an experienced theatre member or interested freshman walked into the informational theatre meeting was the word “flype” written in big blue letters on the front board. Suddenly, flype was floating all around the school. It can be seen from the commons to the 300s building, but how did this unique trend start? And how did the theater department get involved with it?

Flype started at the end of last school year within our own Lindbergh Student Council.

“We reached out to other flyers with school spirit through Twitter; about 30 people came to meet us at Chik-fil-A,” Joe Witt (12) said.

Witt credits Erik Kalfus (12), a fellow student council member, as the creator of the recent flype trend.

“Last year’s Flype lead to this year’s Green Machine, we go to the different sport’s games and get fun items like noisemakers and flags to help create hype and rev up school spirit,” Kalfus said.

Although the spirited STUCO kids coined the phrase, Flype has spread amongst all Lindbergh High School students, especially the theater department, and even more so to the thespian board members.

“We heard about flype around the time of the lipdub, and the two kind of merged together. Lindbergh is a great school because of our flype. We’ve always had it, and I hope to take our flype with me to college,” Evan Garber (12) said.

Theater members are regularly seen throwing around the word flype in between rehearsals and meetings, with smiles on their faces. Although most all of the theater kids love flype, they claim Ms. Winningham doesn’t necessarily understand its appeal.

“Ms. Winingham hates it, but we love it. It is an inevitable fact of life that flype is within everyone at Lindbergh, flype is a birthright for kids at Lindbergh,” Cullen Curth (10) said.

The beautiful thing about flype is that it’s important to kids all across campus for several different reasons; to student council because it began their Green Machine club, and to theater because it brought them all closer together through shared school spirit. Although flype may seem like a silly word to kids outside of our school, flype is important to many kids here at Lindbergh High School.
