Another Exciting Homecoming Week

Something special about our school is the degree of student participation in almost everything---even crazy dress up days before homecoming. This week we had: royalty Day, fake injury day, highlighter day, movie character day, and of course our normal Friday blue and white day.

On Monday, we were inspired to be in the presence of such important monarchs as Queen Elizabeth, Queen Katherine, and...Hannah Montana? What's she doing here?

This little girl is the Queen Bee.

On Tuesday, injury day, it was difficult to get around in the halls for all the wheelchairs and casts and braces. I wore a bit of bandage tape on my face, but other than that, dressed in ordinary clothes. There was enough fake bleeding to make the place look like a triage tent and I felt some of us needed to be whole enough to care for the injured.

Wednesday, highlighter day, we had one hundred percent participation...thanks to neon duct tape. It was a wild, shiny day.

It was also "See you at the Pole" Day so we rather lit up the street as well.

Yesterday, movie characters were running around everywhere.

I was Gladys Aylward from the Inn of the Sixth Happiness, the science teacher was Ben Stein, from the movie Expelled, and there were students from every genre around...well every genre that didn't stretch the dress code too far.

Our winners on Thursday were  from Veggie Tales: Bob and Larry. They played their instruments and sang in the halls between every class.

Today is blue and white day. The posters will be judged. Homecoming will happen this evening out at the football field...and I'll be running around trying to fit the last of the t-shirt orders with those who ordered...but didn't get them delivered yet. Wish me a blue and white day!
