One of the most exciting weeks of every student’s high school career is happening this week, with an event around every corner and not a single dull moment, or outfit, in sight. That’s right, this week is homecoming week for the Bulldogs. So be loud and proud, show your spirit, and make sure to enjoy every moment. 

This past Friday, September 22nd, was our infamous homecoming assembly, where our Student Council members, student volunteers, and staff created a loud, spirited, and informational pep assembly to get everyone excited about the thrilling events of the following week. Our phenomenal StuCo team spent hours perfecting this assembly, keeping it fun and informational, and packing it full of entertaining events. Sophomore William Neese and senior Izzy Meyer are two incredible members of our Student Council and were the main faces behind planning and organizing this event. The assembly included a collection of activities to increase the spirit of all members of the school. Our incredible Popular Acclaim choir began our assembly with a moving performance of the Star Spangled Banner. Following this, the fall sports all lined up and stormed the gym to be praised for their hard work so far this season, the marching band flooded the gym with the sweet tunes of our Palisade Bulldog fight song, and the cheerleaders performed their very best, showcasing their new talents and tricks this year. After so many weeks of waiting, our Homecoming Royalty for the 2023-24 school year was announced to the school. The royalty members competed in a round of “Finish That Lyric” having to twirl their partner before the other members to sing the following lyrics to the song playing. The assembly also included lots of student body participation, including a relay race, and giant hamster ball fights. Another incredibly important aspect of the Bulldog Homecoming week is our Spirit Bone, which was presented to the student body at the assembly. Each class is given the opportunity to win different events throughout the week, and the class with the most spirit points from those events gains the bragging rights over the other classes, as well as the honor of the Spirit Bone. Our StuCo members also discussed the different sporting events for the next week, the spirit day themes, and the rules and prices for the Homecoming dance itself.

This year was a bit of a curveball for the team as the Student Council advisor, Alex Smith, was out on maternity leave this week, but this was not stopping our Bulldogs. They still put in their all to make this week the most fun it could possibly be. “I really would like to thank the admin’s role in helping us with homecoming, Usually StuCo is the face of the planning, but the students don’t see the hours that Mr. Hayward, Mr. Howard, Mr. Bollinger, and all of our admin put in to make homecoming perfect.” Says Neese. Thanks so much to our Student Council team and everyone who makes this incredible week doable. Have a great time this week Bulldogs, and we’ll see you all at the Neon-Out Homecoming Volleyball game tonight. Go Bulldogs!
