From the creative costumes and pep rallies to exciting festivities and dancing on the football field, Homecoming week was a grand one. The Star School status was just a bonus to one of Oak Grove’s most eventful weeks. During the week, students came to school with grins and laughs at the sight of their friends’ costumes. Everyday was a different theme that allowed students to break free from the normal dress code. After all the events of the previous days, it was time for the Homecoming game. As soon as the clock struck 9:00 p.m. that night, students flocked to the dance for a long night of moving to the beat.
Warriors show beauty and brawn
For the 2011 school year, Christina Bostick took the title of Oak Grove’s Homecoming Queen and was escorted by Usef Lowe. “The best part about being Homecoming Queen is the feeling of gratitude that overwhelmed me when I heard my name called,” Bostick said.
On Friday, October 14th, students enjoyed more than the regular, mundane pep rally activities. The Warriors participated in games such as tug-of-war and boogied to DJ Trazy’s tracks after pep rally festivities as a reward for achieving Star School status.
From fish, to ghosts, and to Beyonce with child, this year’s Homecoming week was filled with more creative costumes than ever before. Students showed an amazing amount of school spirit as they dressed up as their favorite characters and celebrities.
