Spirited Competition Kicks off Today
By Rabita Aziz (October 18, 2004)
Ah, Homecoming Week.
only time of the year that the school will actually encourage us to
become as animated as Roger Rabbit, as hairy as a caveman, as lady-like
as Denis Rodman…well, you get the point. Homecoming Week brings out the
crazy in all of us, and it’s amusing for all, even if you don’t dress
up and earn points for your class. This year’s theme is GMTV,
with Monday designated as History Channel Day, Tuesday as Cartoon
Network day, Wednesday as Weather Channel day, and Thursday as ESPN
day. This week will be filled with spirited events, such as the annual
Powder Puff football game, the pep rally, the Homecoming football game
Friday night under the lights, and of course, the Homecoming Dance.
This is the only day allowed wear students may wear only one article of clothing and still earn points. Students should wear college or professional sports jerseys, baseball caps, etc. Students won’t be allowed to carry around basketballs or footballs, etc. Finally, Friday will be red and white day, and students will have to wear our school colors to earn points.
The dance of course will finish off Homecoming week. The week starts off on Monday as the freshman class day, Designated as History Channel Day. Students will earn points for their class if they wear clothing ranging from the beginning of time to 1989. At least two articles of clothing are needed in order for students to earn points. Tuesday is Cartoon Network Day, meaning students may dress up as cartoon characters, or wear t-shirts with characters on them, or the like. Wednesday is Weather Channel Day, meaning students should watch out for a low pressure system moving down the hall as they make their way to classes. Thursday, being the senior theme day, will be ESPN Day. This is the only day allowed wear students may wear only one article of clothing and still earn points. Students should wear college or professional sports jerseys, baseball caps, etc. Students won’t be allowed to carry around basketballs or footballs, etc. Finally, Friday will be red and white day, and students will have to wear our school colors to earn points.
The festivities of course don’t end at 2:45. Hall decorating for each class will begin at 3 and go to 5 on Monday. This is a competitive event in which the grades will fight to earn the most points by having the best decorations pertaining to their class day up in their designated hall. Students will also earn points by attending and participating in the event. Halls will be judged by level of creativity, and whether or not the rules have been abided by. There will be games galore Tuesday night, with the freshman versus sophomore kickball game at 3. The junior versus senior Powder Puff game will also take place on Tuesday, as well as the girls’ away volleyball game, with the spirit bus leaving at 4:30. The annual pep rally will take place Thursday night from 7-9. Finally on Friday, the SCA tailgate party will start at 5 and continue until the start of the Homecoming football game at 7:30. The Mustangs will take on Rappahannock High School for their first Homecoming game under the new lights. Saturday will find seniors decorating in the cafeteria in preparation of the dance starting at 8. Students, and the rest of the community, will be able to relax at the International Family Picnic at Cherry Hill Park on Sunday, from 3-6.
Homecoming Week is sure to be one to remember, this year filled with exciting events that the entire school can take part in. The classes will need to come together to try to win the Battle of the Classes, and dethrone the senior class, as the senior classes have won the Battle for years. Of course, the senior class will need to fight hard to keep its title, since the other three classes are spirited forces to be reckoned with as well.
