The 2015 Homecoming at HRV has been filled with excitement and friendly competition among the classes. It all began on Sunday morning as the freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors came to school to decorate the halls. Energy filled the hallways as each class unloaded various supplies. Music blasted from stereos and students started to get to work transforming their hallways into magical new worlds. Hall decoration lasted until 4 pm, and then the students left until the next morning.
Monday begins with crowds of students in class colors! Freshman dressed up in yellow, sophomores in white, and juniors in blue. Seniors represented themselves in all black. There was a pie eating contest during lunch where every class sends a delegate to demolish an entire pie. It was boys versus girls. The boy winner was freshman Nick Lawrence and the girl winner was junior Ann Marie Goodman. With that, students returned home until Tuesday.
Tuesday morning brings many hipsters and movie characters to school. By far, the most common dress up was tie dye. During lunch, the dance-off was held in the gym. Freshman and sophomores brought good crowds and performed well choreographed dances. Juniors had two boys who danced by themselves and rocked the audience! Lastly, seniors brought the largest participators and won the dance competition.
Wednesday is bonfire day! Students dressed up for formal, decades, and cross-dressing themes. They come back to school at 6 pm to gather around a fire for games and laughs.
Many people argue that Thursday is the best day of Homecoming Week. Why? It is Air Guitar day. Air Guitar brings everyone in the school together to compete for their class. Staff won the competition, with seniors in second place. Freshman and juniors tied for third and sophomores came in strong with fifth place.
Today is Friday and there are still many events to look forward to too. There is a football game tonight at 7 pm on the HRV field. During halftime, the homecoming court will be named. And to finish off the week, the homecoming dance is on Saturday night from 8-11pm. As if there wasn’t enough dancing this week!
