Thirty five out of the thirty-six weeks of the Wesleyan school year are filled with countless assessments, Bible papers and piles of homework; Homecoming Week is the one week out of the year where school becomes a little less serious. It is a time where students trade the uniforms for silly costumes and this year, the school went from a normal high school in Georgia to the red carpet in Hollywood.
From Game Day to Disney Day, this year’s homecoming week was full of lively days that all the students enjoyed.
One of the most exciting parts of Wesleyan homecoming activities are the theme days. Every year, the student government decides four different theme days for Monday through Thursday and what each grade will wear on the Friday of homecoming week. Student Body President, senior, Lauren Alexander said to decide the different theme days, the student government “compiles individual ideas on a list and then crosses off the ones [they] don’t like until [they] have a small number [they] can vote on.” Keep Reading
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.
