Flagler Palm Coast High School has an annual Homecoming week during October, in which each day students are allowed out of dress code to participate in dressing up. FPC’s Student Government Association Advisor, Mrs. Cheryl Perry stated, “Just for fun! Dress up days are a free, easy way for the entire student body to be a part of something.”
Homecoming is a time for cheer and celebration. FPC holds its annual Homecoming pep rally and Homecoming football game to help spread school spirit, and it’s own Insanity Games for a little friendly competition among the school.
Mrs. Sarah Lombardo responded with, “I think we dress up for Homecoming week so that it shows we are united as a school, showing school spirit.”
“What I ask the SGA members to consider when making choices is number one, pick days that will promote widespread participation. Days that people can grab something out of their closet and not have to purchase things for. For every complicated costume day (Like Superheros and Villains) they should have a simple one (Like pajamas or sports day).” Mrs. Perry clarified, “The only one that is a MUST HAVE is Spirit Day on the day of the pep rally and game.”
In order to determine the days, SGA has a meeting where they vote on themes for each day of the week. They keep in mind what they think the student body has interests in. Unfortunately, this year’s Homecoming week was cut short due to Hurricane Matthew. On the other hand, Homecoming is a tradition, and must be kept. So the FPC 2016 homecoming Insanity Games, spirit day, dance, and football game have all been postponed to the 3rd, 4th, 5th of November.
