With the conclusion of the homecoming dance on Saturday, Oct. 1, homecoming week finally came to an end at Davis High. In addition to the dance, the action-packed week featured a rally, an energizing Spirit Week, Back to School Night, the homecoming parade and a remarkable homecoming game.

Starting off the week was the Homecoming Rally on Sept. 25. Senior Nick Amoah, head of the student government rally committee, believes the event went “pretty well.”

“I wouldn’t change anything [about the rally] in the future,” Amoah said.

Homecoming week was also Spirit Week at DHS. Every day, there was a different theme to dress up as: ‘Murica Monday, Trucker Tuesday, Where’d You Go Wednesday, Jetlag Thursday and Keep Davis Blue Friday.

“I really loved this year’s spirit days,” junior Laura Giovanetti said. “They were super original and something I’d never seen before.”

As the week progressed, Back to School Night invited all parents to come and learn about the classes of their children on Thursday, Sept. 29.

Then, on Friday Sept. 30, students got out early to witness the homecoming parade, which turned out to be the highlight of Homecoming for most. Soon after, they came back to witness the home football game, with Davis losing to Jesuit 16-26.

“We had a super great game,” Giovanetti said. “It was huge, but it would have been incredibly cool to have won.”

Finally, on Oct. 1, students let loose at the homecoming dance.
