Spirit days, door decorating, football and parades; with so many different Homecoming activities, there are plenty of ways for students to get involved.
The homecoming rally will be the first event to take place this week, on Monday, Sept. 22.
“I liked the rallies in junior high. I think it’s a great way to start the week,” sophomore Kyle Morse said.
Students will be let out of their third period classes on Monday to attend the rally.
ASB President Annie Leck says one of the best ways to be part of Homecoming week is to participate in the spirit days. Each day, there will be a different theme and a different opportunity to show school spirit.
“You can go as crazy as you want, or as tame as you want,” Leck said.
The Blue Devils will take on the Elk Grove Thundering Herd for Friday’s game. Elk Grove is one of the best teams in Davis’ league this year.
“I’m really excited about the football game and hanging out with all my friends,” junior Brittany Eggers said.
Sabreen Rashmawi, a sophomore on the Student Government parade committee, recommends float building as a way for new students to get involved.
“I think it’ll be a good way for sophomores to start feeling connected to this school,” Rashmawi said.
Benton Harshaw is one of those sophomores. “I’m looking forward to getting out early and meeting up with my friends to watch the parade,” Harshaw said.
Dismissal for the parade will be at 12:48 p.m. on Friday. The parade will consist of floats from the football team, volleyball team and three class floats.
There will also be spirit days this week. On Monday is the America Rally, followed by Toga Tuesday, What Not to Wear Wednesday, Throwback Thursday and finally Freakishly Blue Friday.
“I love the spirit days because I get to dress up funny,” sophomore Ben Bergevin said.
