North Point’s first-ever homecoming was definitely one for the books. This year the high schools in our district decided to have the dance on the football field instead of in a building due to COVID. Therefore, the theme for the first dance was “Dancing Under the Stairs”. This theme was very fitting considering that we were literally dancing under the stars.
Of course, every one of our theme days had something to do with the night sky.
Volleyball did a great job in demonstrating how to show school spirit during our theme days.
Monday, Oct. 4, was the first-ever first day of HOCO spirit week, the theme was “sleeping under the stars”, and wearing your favorite pj’s. All the girls wore their comfiest pj’s and some girls even decided to match each other.
Tuesday, Oct. 5, the girls went all out for “neon day” to represent the beautifully colored northern lights. They wore colorful eye paint and neon sunglasses.
“I loved seeing Mckayla Markus in her bright pink tutu,” Ruby Murphy (’24) said.
Wednesday, Oct. 6 was “cloudy night” ( wear your best groufit, wear grey on grey)
Thursday, Oct. 7, was “grizzly gear” day to show off your school spirit by wearing your best grizzly gear. The girls showed all their pride in our school and every single one of them wore their best grizzly spirit wear.
Friday, Oct. 8 was “eclipse day”, blackout for the freshman and whiteout for our sophomores and juniors.
“That was my favorite theme because I liked putting white handprints all over my legs,” Taelyn Mapes (’23) said.
Not only was this the theme for the last day of homecoming spirit week, but it was also the day of North Point’s first-ever varsity homecoming football game. The girls wore their colors to school, but they got extra dressed up to cheer on their fellow grizzly football players at the special game.
“This was the best theme day because almost everyone in the school participated in this theme,” Reese Kruger (’25), who plays on the freshman volleyball team said.
