Last week we had homecoming. In our homecoming week we had multiple activities.
Over the whole weeks we had different themes to dress every day.
- Favorite movie character
- Back in the days
- School Colors in red and blue
In our parade many groups of our school went to our downtown and threw candy. It can be compared to our German Karneval. Our football team for example was driving on the fire trucks. Also the dance team went with us, the marching band, our homecoming court and others. The homecoming court exists out of the five most votes boys and girls each, who are the candidates for homecoming king and queen.
The pep rally is some kind of a school show with the current seniors. The school marching band played our school anthem and the dance team presented their dances. The parents of the Seniors made a show with their children. They dressed them up like characters from their generation. Also the homecoming king and queen were being elected.
Homecoming Game and Dance
In the evening we had our homecoming game. So we had a home football game with our marching band, the dance team and so on. In the halftime our school gave a great entertainment with all of them. Also the homecoming king and queen were presented to the public. Fortunately we won the game, so we could go with a good mood to our homecoming dance. Well, the dance was not that successful, so very less people were even there and even less were actual dancing. But simply spending time with my friends and especially new people was quite fun. After that we hang out a bit and some of my friends invited me to go snipe hunting, but fortunately told me the real meaning after they realized that I would be really screwed up alone in a corn field.
