Other than cheerleading tryouts, homecoming is the busiest week of the year for me. The week begins with spirit days. The cheerleaders practice each day for their pep rally routine. We have a homecoming parade on Wednesday and a JV game on Thursday.
Friday is madness. Our school shuts down around 11 and each organization on campus hosts a booth of either food, games, drinks. Lots of fun things for the student body to do. When they are all excited and sugared up, the administrators corral them into the gym and Liz and I put on a 50 minute pep rally with skits, cheers, games, etc. Friday night is the game and then Saturday I am exhausted!
Here are a few of the pictures I captured this week during the spirit dress up days.
Some of the football players came to strut their stuff during “Fashion Disaster” day. I think I owned one of those suits in the early 90’s!
Two of my students dressed up as “White Chicks” for twin day! Yes, they are both boys. I graduated from high school with the kid on the right’s daddy. He’s rockin that coach purse.
I don’t know what dress up day this was but my girls wanted me to put on the Afro wig, so I obliged!
Today was “good guy/bad guy” day. Liz and I dressed as the “Good Witch & the Wicked Witch” When I told Joe what I was dressing up as, his reply was “Appropriate!” I’ll get him, and his little dog too! BTW, we we drove up to school this morning, Mitchell left skid marks in the parking lot b/c he couldn’t get away from me fast enough! He definitely doesn’t deserve a spirit stick!
