Homecoming bonfire kick-off welcomes back old traditions

The Bonfire, Kick-Off to Homecoming week, returned after a long hiatus due to the pandemic.  Per usual, the event acts as an “opener” to what students and alumni alike regard as one of the best weeks in the school year.

The Bonfire’s purpose is to not only kick off Homecoming spirit week but to also give students a chance to show their school spirit with games and challenges.

Grades competed in a tug-of-war competition, donut races, and a corn hole competition to earn points for the “Battle of The Classes” a tradition the Student Council Association (SCA) has brought back this year. And, although there will be a winner for Homecoming Week, SCA does plan for “Battle of the Classes” to become a year-long challenge where grade levels continue to compete in fun competitions throughout the year. At the end of the year, all points will be totaled and one class will be announced as the winner.

“Homecoming Bonfire all came together as we had planned it,” SCA Co-Treasurer senior Max Miller said. “From the live performances by the guitar club to the donut races, the atmosphere was electric.”

The Homecoming Bonfire continues to be a loved tradition by attendees and everyone involved. The Falcon spirit shown will continue throughout, just as in years past, during the week leading up to the Homecoming football game and dance.
