Bearden celebrates homecoming week

The Bulldogs of Bearden High School are celebrating homecoming this week.

The festivities began Monday, Oct. 11 and concludes with the football game on Friday, Oct. 15 when Bearden takes on the Cherokees of South Doyle High School.

Monday was pajama day. The students were allowed to wear their favorite loungewear to class. Many wore slippers and carried their favorite stuffed animals around campus.

Tuesday was tacky day. The students were encouraged to wear their favorite mismatched clothing.

Wednesday, they were donned in camouflage wear.

Today, Thursday, is decade day. The students will dress in outfits resembling their favorite era of days gone by. This evening, BHS has “Spirit Night” beginning at 7 p.m. at the football stadium.

“Spirit Night” is the all-school pep rally and family and friends of BHS students are invited to attend. School spirit week concludes with students wearing their school colors of maroon and gray Friday.

Assistant principal Debbie Bean said the students have several competitions between the four classes throughout the week.

“Everything is a competition this week,” she said. “The kids paint the windows in the common areas and design t-shirts for their class. Bean said the creations are judged and awards are given to the best in class.

An activity that takes place during “Spirit Night” is the 3-dimensional artwork competition. The students use plywood and other materials to create school spirit and theme related designs. They place their designs on the banks of the football field to be judged.

Dean said the homecoming court has been narrowed down this week. “It is important to let the girls know if they will be on the court so that they can get their dresses,” she said. “The homecoming court is escorted onto the field by their fathers and the queen is crowned at half-time.”

Sophomore Rachelle Coke, who is one of the students who raise the flags in the front of the school each morning, said she really enjoys this week.

“You can tell the students with the most school spirit and all of the activities make the week a lot of fun,” she said.
