Get ready to be blown out of this world with Bear River’s Galaxy Gala Homecoming.

Bear River is hosting our very first Galaxy themed basketball homecoming on Saturday, February 11.

Leadership Supervisor Matt MacDonald discussed the students involved in making Homecoming decisions.

“In Leadership, we have an Executive Council and they are made up of all the elected officers from all the grade levels,” he said. “So there are four representatives from each class. Those 16 students meet every Monday and part of what they do is come up with the concepts of what we are doing.”

Mr. MacDonald and students talked about the time spent setting up the Homecoming theme and ideas.

“The students discuss different ideas,” said MacDonald. “Space was an idea because the new Star Wars movie had just come out. Also, space was kind of a theme we thought we could do some really cool things with it.”

“We brainstorm to come up with the idea,” said Kaylee Bohrer, a junior. “We tried to figure out what would be the most exciting for a big attendance.”

Mr. MacDonald explained the different kinds of props that are going to be used for decorating at the Homecoming Dance.

“We are making glow-in-the-dark planets,” said Mr. MacDonald. “We are making this giant spaceship for the entrance, and different aliens coming out of the walls. It’s pretty cool all of the stuff we came up with.”

Leadership planned spirit days for homecoming week. On Monday is “Meteor Showers,” Tuesday is “Stargazing,” Wednesday is “Parallel Universe,” Thursday is “Cowboy vs. Aliens,” and Friday is “Planets Day.” The class colors for freshmen are blue, sophomores are purple, juniors are red, and seniors are black.    

Leadership officials are encouraging Bruins to attend the “Galaxy Gala” Saturday, February 11 from 7:30 p.m.-10:30 p.m. Tickets are available from Leadership students or Mr. MacDonald. Those with an All Access Pass are free; students without a pass are $15.
