Specific dates for Homecoming are determined each year based upon the football schedule and accommodations for other schools’ schedules.  This year, Homecoming falls on a three-and-a-half-day week. This means that Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are full spirit days and Thursday is a half day for our class spirit day, pep-rally, and Homecoming football game.

The Homecoming Dance will take place that Friday rather than the traditional Saturday dance. This also means that one of the spirit days will have to be dropped. This conflict has especially affected the seniors since it is their last year and they won’t get to participate in every day as they expected to do for the last 3 years.

Ben Smith, a senior, said that “spirit days being shortened doesn’t allow us to get the full senior year Homecoming experience. Spirit week is something that is very important your senior year and this year we are missing out”.

Seniors in SGA have fought for this week to be changed or to start the spirit days Thursday of the week before, but the school rejected the request. The new spirit days are yet to be announced by the SGA, but this is a tough decision.

Hannah Lorenzo, the Vice President of SGA, says “our meetings are devoted to the Homecoming preparations and decisions will be thoroughly discussed. The Spirit Week dates are out of our control, but we are doing our best to make these three and a half days enjoyable for everyone”.
