Homecoming week proved to be fun-filled. The dance, the student-faculty basketball game and beautiful weather for all activities on Friday all contributed to this year’s success. Student body president Chris Middleton said, “In my opinion, this year’s homecoming was the best in our school’s history.”

It was a great week. With costume days, pep rallies and a homecoming parade, the Wesleyan student body had many opportunities to express school spirit. With dress up days including “Hashtag Day,” “Stages of Life,” “Twin Day” and “Superheroes.” From freshmen to seniors, the students all heavily participated.

Junior, Patrick English, took home the crown for best costume this year as he dressed up as “Kronk” from “The Emperor’s New Groove.” There were many awesome costumes around the entire school, including the middle school and high school. Wesleyan’s homecoming week was, indeed, memorable this year.
