Student Council prepping for Homecoming Week

More stories from Stephaine Rivera


Homecoming is an annual school wide spirited event that occurs during the fall semester, centered on inviting old students back to their alma mater, a football game, and celebrating with a dance.

During homecoming week, Student Council and their sponsor, Ms. Samantha Matthis, pick out the themes for each day of Spirit Week. Officers came up with a list of themes that the entire student council members eventually vote for.

Monday will be ‘Merica Monday, a day in which students are encouraged to celebrate their love for America. Tuesday is Twin Day. Students are asked to dress like a fellow classmate. Wednesday is Cartoon Day. Students can dress like their favorite cartoon characters. Thursday is Tie Dye, and Friday is Red Out Day. On Friday, students are asked to show their school spirit by wearing as much red as possible.

“Spirit week is important for homecoming because it gives students a sense of pride [because they attend] Judson,” Matthis said.

That Friday, October 9, Judson will be playing against the New Braunfels Unicorns at Rutledge Stadium. On Saturday, October 10, Student Council will be hosting the homecoming dance. The organization will deck the cafeteria out as an Enchanted Forest.

The goal for homecoming week is to not only show school spirited, invite alumni back, and win a football game. It is also to just have a good time during a week of fun and school spirit.

“[The goal is to] just to have fun with it unlike other days of the year,” Matthis said.
