Homecoming week came early to Berean Christian School this year. Traditionally, homecoming week is held in January. This year, the change was made to celebrate homecoming during football season.
The week at school was filled with class competitions and dress-up days that reflected the theme, “Living the Legacy,” including 50s Day, 60s Day, Legendary Day, Patriot Day and Class Color Day.
The annual Meet the Teams Night also took a bit of a turn this year. In addition to the annual elementary bicycle parade and sports teams parade, a procession of each class displaying their banners and presenting each grade’s representatives for the homecoming court was featured. The Meet the Teams evening also included food, face painting, games, a bake sale and vendors selling everything from jewelry to popcorn.
Homecoming week was to culminate in a football game against St. John’s Lutheran School with a half-time presentation of the homecoming court and crowning of the 2014 king and queen. This plan took a turn due to lightning in the area. The game was canceled, but the weather did not ruin the evening. The event was moved from the Wellington High School field to the cafeteria. Seniors Trey Mayfield and Sarah Starkey were crowned homecoming king and queen.
