Cool Story, bro!
RedRage00, VHS was extinct well before I entered high school.
It's ok though, you didn't know
Homecoming isn't the same as when you all were in school 60 years ago.
How many students you know come back from college for homecoming? I don't think many.
It's just a reason for the CURRENT group of kids to have fun, and to have a dance. The dance is only for CURRENT students too. Alumni cannot show up to the HS dance lol
Not sure how EdithAnn is being negative....
I agree with her suggestion, not having a Homecoming would be lame, so why not an "Inaugural Ball"? I'm pretty sure if you polled the students, 95% would say let's do it.
Shake em' off Edith!
I'm with EdithAnn. Have a big event for the schools but don't call it homecoming since it really isn't. How about "Housewarming"? That's what people ahve when they move into new digs.Patrick T. Barnes

Every High School should have a homecoming no matter how old the school is. Why deny some of the students that opportunity. Let them let their hair down and have some fun.
And Edith, speaking of supporting schools, I understand that there will be some kind of dedication ceremony I know for East. I think perhaps along the line of askings Gods blessings on the school and GOD and everyone else knows how badly we need that!
why would you want to deny the current senior classes their last homecoming ?
Redrage, Edith is right, when I was coming up, a school had to be 5 years old before they could have a homecoming. there were two new schools in just a couple of years added to the three originals and neither of them got to have homecoming till they were five years old. I didnt have one, because the school was only 4 when I was a senior and the other on only 3. It was however fun to go back to the games in the subsequent years. The first year I was married, my husband and I wentn to the dance with his younger sis and her date and found a lot of old friend there. TIMES HAVE REALLY CHANGED. The other thing I see in my grandkids is that they go stag. Back in my day, the ticket to homecoming or prom was for TWO people, (being one male and one female) and if you couldnt get a date, you couldnt go. If your date was from an other school or already in college, they had to be approved to attend...................Are you listening Mrs. Crick and Mr. Crockett?
Wonder if Ms Whitley has 3 sons or her son has 3 dates? Either way, what a nice mom to make sure the girls get mums!
dont know the man or much about the position, but your crusade against both is always funny / somewhat interesting
can one have a phobia of homecoming mums ?
It's unfortunate that the two new schools really don't have a homecoming. You have to have left something to be able to come back. East and West will have their first homecomings next year.
What would have been different and unique for this first year's 'big dance' event would have been an 'Inaugural Ball'. Nothing would be any different, only the name of the event. Still have the mums, the dance, the pictures, the decorations, the queen, but it would have been a one of a kind event. Each school could have initiated some kind of unique 'moment' to commemorate the new schools. Perhaps a crowning of the mascot.
Well, whatever! Be safe and have a great time.
