I thought it would be kinda fun to see what other high schools typically do during homecoming week. Like, do you have a different theme for each day, have a parade or pep rally the day of the homecoming? So this year at my school our themes for this year are - Frat boy/ Sorority girl day aka vineyard vines and preppy. -decades day (1920ish - early 2000's) -90's cartoon/tv show character day (my twin sister and I have already decided on phil and lil, debby and eliza thornberry, or dw and arthur ) -vsco day (kinda basic if you ask me) -school spirit and mums day( if you have never lived in Texas, you probably wouldn't understand the mum thing...bc sometimes I dont. ) On Thursday before the homecoming game we have a huge bonfire and community pep rally. This is were one of the senior girls(fingers crossed it's my best friend aka my twin, but shes hoping its me) gets crowned homecoming queen. Yes, I know getting crowned at the pep rally is not typical, but this is more so for parade purposes and it's a tradition at our school to be crowned at the community pep rally. On the day of the game we have a community pep rally, where all the schools in our town get involved and participate, as well as a bunch of the local businesses. Each grade level all have a float in the parade ( pre-k all the way through 12th.) This is always a half day of classes and really just a day school spirit and fun. The girls who are on homecoming court, and the senior girl who won homecoming queen all ride on classic convertible cars. For the game we have this tradition of all the cheerleaders(9th, JV, and varsity squads) all cheer at the game. Instead of wearing one of current uniforms we wear our 1950s style uniform, complete with the sweaters, pleated skirts, and even the saddle locks. The sweaters are very simply they have a megaphone on them and our schools letter on top of the megaphone, our names are in our school letter( we actually get to keep these uniforms, and the coach makes a memory box/frame for all the seniors) We have a homecoming dance on Saturday night! I'll even post pics of the 3 dresses I am torn between if you guys would like to see them.
