Thurston High’s Hollywood Homecoming gets rave reviews

By Kelvin Salter

 

Once again, the student council planned a homecoming week that showcased the great school spirit of THS Eagles.

From the courtyard decorated with scarecrows in the persona of cheerleaders, football players, and marching band members to teacher doorways competing for the trophy for the best door decor, the school shined in homecoming festivity.

Hollywood Homecoming 2k15 at Thurston High School will be one for the books.  As the cheer team would chant, “We’ve got spirit, yes we do! We’ve got spirit, how ‘bout you?”

It all started on Monday, October 5th where each grade level competed to see who would have the most students come dressed for Pajama Day.   The halls were filled with jammies and slippers.  On Tuesday it was Holiday Day.   Students came to school dressed for their favorite holidays whether that was a halloween costume, an ugly Christmas sweater, or even students carrying baby dolls saying they were celebrating Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  Wednesday was Old People Day where walkers and gray hair ruled the school.  Students got into their roles that day and made it through the hallways very very slowly.  On Class Color Day, each class had spirit from the Seniors who wore all black, to the Juniors who wore all white, Sophomores who wore blue and the Freshmen who wore red.   Even the teachers got into the spirit with orange.

And then there’s Friday, Eagle Pride and a Pink Out all in one. So much school spirit buzzed through the halls as the students anticipated the Tailgate and Homecoming Football Game.  The Tailgate this year featured a Bounce House and obstacle course, dancing, face painting, and performances.  So many Eagles met and had fun.  Eagles came in all types whether they were teachers and their families, alumni, or students.   The excitement continued to escalate until the beginning of the Homecoming Football game which was against Redford Union. Thurston won with a leading score of 33-6, Go Eagles!

Saturday was the night of the dance where students walked into a red carpet.  In their finest attire, students were getting pictures paparazi style and then strutted their way into the gym where the spent hours dancing.  By ten, feet were sore and high heels were discarded.  Whether students headed out to dinner or simply home to get a good night sleep, they would be satisfied with another successful homecoming.
