Last week was homecoming week at Nate's school. They call it "old School Spirit Week" and they have great stuff every day to do. It is a competition between the classes, with the class with the most points at the end of the week being declared the winner. Classes are denoted by color: Freshmen are green, Sophomores are orange, Juniors are blue, and Seniors are red. Each day they are invited to dress the theme (Monday- 60's, Tuesday-70's, Wednesday-80's (There's also a powder puff football game that night), Thursday-90's, and Friday-Spirit Colors, and there are competitions at lunch. The middle and elementary feeder schools participate also, even in dressing up. The week culminates with the float competition at the game, and the vote for king and queen. A table is set up at the entrance to the game. All students...even the elementary ones, get in free and they get to vote. Saturday night is the dance, which was held at a bowling alley. Nate is not a "dress up" kinda guy, but he did wear red every day (even took a red shirt with him on Friday (game days the football team wears white dress shirts, purple or black ties,dress pants and shoes. This year...The Seniors WON!!!
It was great, and I got to see it all on the school website!
