Another Bruin homecoming is happening soon!
This means another year of Bear River Leadership working hard to make sure our Homecoming is perfect. Ever think about how they do it? It is actually quite a long process for the Leadership team.
Leadership started having meetings with the officers in late June and started making official plans in August. They had a plan for homecoming ready during mid-July and everything was finalized by August.
To come up with the theme, the class is split into groups based on their grade. From there, each team comes up with ideas and presents their best one. This way, each grade level gets to be involved.
Each grade level elaborates on their idea and the whole class votes on two, and then develops those two pick their best one. Preparing for Homecoming comes down to a lot of communication and a lot of hard work.
With all this planning happening months before Homecoming, it definitely puts a lot of stress onto the amazing leadership team.
“I’m gonna feel like a free woman again,” said ASB vice president Gabby Gerster.
This week specifically is hard on Leadership, having to prepare for Spirit Week and a Homecoming while also being involved in extracurricular activities.
“Overall, things go well, people have fun and I think my Leadership students enjoy it and are tired by the end. I’m tired,” said Leadership advisor Jessica Lee.
Normally spirit week is before the homecoming dance, but this year things are a little different. This year the dance takes place before the big game and spirit week. This brought out a lot of opinions.
The move is to put less stress on the Leadership kids and to hopefully have the Homecoming football game have a better turn out.
“As Leadership kids, it’s hard to stay for the football game, and stay and clean up and be there till 10:30 and then wake up at 8:30 to set up the next day and have all these decorations going on in the leadership room,” Gerster said. “Lee has been making a lot of changes in her first three years and that was one of her first changes to help Leadership.”
Homecoming isn’t the only fun thing that’s coming up. Spirit week is the week where everyone gets to dress up in fun ways! We start off Monday by dressing up as a soccer mom or dad. Tuesday is based on the card game Texas hold ‘em so dress in your best western wear. Wednesday is based on the board game Guess Who?, where you can dress up as anyone and people have to guess who you are. Thursday is Super Mario Bros, so dress as your favorite character from the iconic game, and finally, Friday you dress in your best Bruin wear and show school spirit!
Let’s get ready for another amazing Homecoming prepared by our Leadership crew. Get ready to dance your head off at homecoming and dress in your best wear for spirit week!
