Sometimes Most of the time teenagers amaze me. Our high school of about 900 students has an amazing homecoming weekend. Thursday night includes powderpuff football, a parade and a bonfire. Friday is a pep rally and the game. Saturday is the dance. All of this is planned and executed by a student council of about 60 students with some help from their advisers. At the pep rally the students show such great spirit. When they do the Trojan Rumble, they all do it. When they do the Funky Chicken, even the elementary students who serve as prince and princess, know it! Click here for the video.
Every Homecoming Week the students come in on a Saturday and decorate their hallways. The theme this year is Movies. Freshmen always yellow, sophomores-green, juniors-blue and seniors-black. When I try to suggest something else (I am the SC adviser) they insist on doing it (tradition). Always impressed with the time and effort!
