Down in the Mardi Gras Bayou

Homecoming Week comes to a close.

Homecoming week was Oct. 2–7 with this year’s theme: A Night in the Bayou. Some winners of the dress-up days include Sam Amyx (12) and Jake Tarallo (12).


During lunch, the Student Government Association hosted “Guess the Disney Song” where they played Disney songs and students guessed the name of the songs. The theme was “Double Trouble” as students matched outfits with their friends. After school, there was a club chalk drawing contest in the courtyard. The Young Women of Excellence won with a design created by Gabrielle Johnson (9) and Zoe DeGarden (9).

The theme was “Your Happily Ever After. ” Students were tasked with dressing as their type. During lunch, SGA hosted a “Rizz-Off” competition where students faced their friends and found out who had the best rizz. During sixth period, students decorated doors during sixth and were judged after school. Ms. Jamie Creghan’s door won the competition.


Students dressed in their best Mardi Gras-colored clothes for “Wild ‘n Out” spirit day. In the auditorium that evening, 11 men from our extracurriculars participated in the Mr. Greyhound Pageant. Ronald Graham (12), representing Young Men of Excellence, won the competition.


Thursday’s theme was “Are You a Princess or a Frog?” where students dressed up to match the theme or dressed in pajamas. During lunch, there was a Frog Scavenger Hunt in which SGA hid frogs around the courtyard and participants competed to find as many frogs as possible before time ran up. After school, there was Powderpuff—the boys were cheerleaders and the girls played flag football. The juniors won 13 to 12 for the first time in four years.


Friday was Mega Blue and Gold Day. Students dressed in their best blue and gold spirit colors and during lunch, students decorated their masks. The special event of Friday was the homecoming parade and pep rally in preparation for the football game after school, winning against East Ridge 32 to 7. Matthew Jebb (12) and Carissa Duarte (12) were crowned homecoming king and queen.


Finally, the homecoming dance, bringing the week to a close.
