Fun Homecoming Traditions We Love

October 18, 2012 Leave a reply

Are you in charge of this year’s homecoming and looking to create fun new homecoming traditions that your school will love?

Homecoming dances are considered a rite of passage and an indelible part of the high school experience. So making positive memories for students to look back on is a must.

Here are 4 fun and creative homecoming traditions we love. See if you can implement them in your school this year!

1. Pick a killer theme. Decide on a theme and pull out all the stops. Halloween, 80s bash, retro, Wild West–you’re only limited by your imagination and the proper etiquette that your school dictates. Encourage students to really dig into the theme and share their creativity, personality, and school spirit.

2. Have a local ballroom dance group host Homecoming. Dances are about fun and meeting new people. You could bring that back to your school by having a ballroom dance company host and teach people a little swing or lindyi hop, so the party will get rolling in a safe and creative environment. Plus, you might just cut down on awkwardness and wall flowers by getting everyone involved.

3. Make Homecoming the culmination of a week-long competition. Looking for ways to make things a little more interesting? Make the week leading up to homecoming a competition between classes, where each student council leads their class in a Triwizard Tournament-style battle for points. Events can be arm wrestling, tug of war, powderpuff football, trivia, and other fun and inventive games that you can come up with. Present the winning class with a trophy at the homecoming dance.

4. Have a pre-Homecoming night of mystery and intrigue. Enlist the help of the drama program to host a murder-mystery night. Serve dinner and have attendees pay for tickets. If you can get caterers to donate their time and food, this can be an awesome fundraiser.

How to Plan the Perfect Homecoming Date

October 11, 2012 Leave a reply

Are you wondering how to plan the perfect homecoming date?
A blend of thoughtfulness, romance, and fun are sure to make homecoming an unforgettable night.

Originality makes a big difference in showing that you care about your significant other so your homecoming date is fun and enchanting.

Being original and thoughtful is simple. Here are some of our favorite tips and trips…

1. Give a small gift. Remember: a small, carefully selected gift is much better than a gaudy piece of bling with a huge price tag. Ask yourself: what does my date like to do? How do we spend time together? If your date is sporty, a Sports Rose might be a tasteful and unique choice that your date will be able to cherish for years to come.

2. Have a plan, but go with the flow. There are some things you absolutely need to plan in advance: what you’re going to wear, pictures, and restaurant reservations are critical. After you arrive at the dance, be flexible! Go with a group of your closest friends so the night will fun and comfortable, not awkward and annoying. Just remember it is your night, so enjoy it!

3. Make sure to ask your date how they are and give compliments. Conversation tells you what the other person is feeling and more importantly shows that you are interested in learning more about them. Compliments are always pleasant, but make sure you say what you mean. Also, make sure it is specific, so your date will know that you have really considered what you’re saying.

4. Know your date’s personality and make it a part of your evening. Some people like to dance and be the life of the party. Others prefer a more quiet, romantic evening. Make accommodations for your date’s preferences, and you’ll have a fantastic time.

Every homecoming date should be amazingly fun — but did you know it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg?
