Homecoming Spirit Week for First Baptist Christian School was one for the record book! With two snow days (unknown in Southeast Louisiana) and as a result of the snow days, the basketball was cancelled, and activities and events had be adjusted. Though it was disappointing to some, the students made the best of it and still enjoyed dressing up and participating. The parade, pep rally, presentation of the court, crowning of the king & queen, and even a basketball game, still went on. It was a good life lesson to be flexible, don’t sweat the small stuff, and to trust God even when our plans fail!
Because of a previous scheduling conflict, Homecoming Week was January 16-19. With Monday, Jan. 15 as Martin Luther King Day, dress up days began on Tuesday with the 7th – 12th grade showing their Super Spirit! Wednesday & Thursday – snow days – no dress up at school! On Friday, the elementary students were given a choice of dress up because of the missed days: Pajama, Look-a-Like, and Mix/Match. Some students chose to represent all three! The 7th – 12th graders dressed as their class theme for the upcoming parade. Many chose to represent Pixar or Disney movies. Creativity was rampant!
After the parade, students participated in a pep rally, which consisted mainly of the presentation of the Homecoming Court. The Senior Class then entertained the student body with gymnastic feats and basketball related games.
That evening, the presentation of the court, escorted by their parents, went as scheduled. Everyone was excited while anticipating the crowning of the king and queen. Congratulations to King Noah Lepine and Queen Jasmine White.
Because the opposing team was unable to attend because of snow days, the Varsity Girls Basketball team challenged the boys to a game. It was a fun night, even though not as originally planned. Both teams were even joined by some of our alumni who had come for the festivities. It’s always good to see our former students!
Homecoming week was finalized with a dance on Saturday night for the 7th – 12th grades. It was well attended and everyone had a good time.
It was a really short school week, but we made the best of it. It will really be a Homecoming to remember!
