This past week, students showed their spirit by dressing up each day for Homecoming Spirit Week in preparation for the Homecoming Dance and football game on Oct 6. Each day had a different dress up theme: Monday pajamas, Tuesday Hawaiian, Wednesday camouflage, Thursday rally gear and Friday sports day. Although Homecoming is typically later in the month, spirit week was moved up to the first week of October due to the football season starting earlier this year.
Many students came to school dressed up—some with a simple accessory, such as a Hawaiian lei, and others with a head-to-toe costume like pajamas, a robe and slippers. The themes were basic enough that students could find a shirt or accessory at home without having to go out and buy clothes, yet gave students room to be creative and spirited.
This year, the Homecoming Court consisted of six girls and six boys—Georgia Bennett, Melissa Block, Harri Hetrick, Julia Scharf, Eli Ganong, Devon McClain, Grace Milan, Miles Squires, Erin McCarthy and winners Simone Mardell and Kyle Felder—who came dressed to impress everyday. Wearing their royalty self-decorated R’s around their necks, the court stood out in the halls due to their flashy outfits. They also participated in lunch time activities including partner trivia, makeovers and some of the girls played in the annual Klassy Kickoff game, won this year by the seniors.
Homecoming Spirit Week successfully set a high energy mood in the halls and increased excitement for the dance. Students let loose, dressed up and came together in order to celebrate school spirit. The dance took place on Oct. 6 along with the homecoming football game which the Giants won against Novato 57-0.
