It’s that time of the year again, Falcons! Freshmen excited for a new experience, sophomores ready for their second take, juniors cherishing their first dance as upperclassmen, and seniors saying a farewell to their final high school Homecoming.

Football games, homecoming week, powder puff, and rallies all lead up to the upcoming dance. As the great community it is, Christian Brothers takes homecoming to another level, providing a opportunity for students to come together to celebrate a exciting time in a students high school career. This special time in October proves to hold a special place in the students hearts as dressing up, taking a break away from the stress of school, and coming together for a exciting time helps to create memories on the Christian Brothers campus.

But what makes Christian Brothers homecoming experience different than others?

“I can only describe Christian Brothers homecoming as something unforgettable, although seeming in the moment as something overrated, looking back at the past two years I have realized all the memories I made just from homecoming and all the excitement around it,” Izzy Ledesma (’20) states. “I couldn’t imagine not having a homecoming during my high school years, as it is always something I look forward to going into the school-year.”

The Talon asked some students at Christian Brothers what they looked forward to this homecoming and how they contribute to the experience for those around the community;

“I am super excited for powder puff and dressing up for Homecoming week. I would say the best part of homecoming is probably the days we get to dress up because we get to show school spirit and get hype for the weekend,” Whitney Hunt (’20) says. ” I think I can say that the way I contribute to the homecoming experience is going all out for the week before and spreading the excitement and anticipation of the dance.”

This year, Student Council is providing a great homecoming week including Blue and White Day, Angels vs. Devils, Cowboys and Aliens, and Jocks and Nerds Day. Make sure to show your CB spirit and contribute into the exciting week.

“I am looking forward to seeing all my friends in their dresses and suites and dancing with my friends,” Katie Phipps (’20) says.

Homecoming is one of the only times of the year where students are allowed to dress up and express themselves through dresses, suits, accessories, and makeup.

“Last year I saw a lot of fur coats, colorful heels, stand out makeup, and colorful dresses unlike the normal ‘little black dress'” Katie says. “I think it’s great! It’s cool to see people dress out of the traditional styles of homecoming and add cool accessories and colors to make their outfit stand out.”

Unlike just homecoming week and dressing up for the dance, Friday night’s  football game will be playing a major role to the homecoming experience.

“Homecoming week is fun, but I think the best part is probably going to watch the boys play Friday night at Hughes Stadium,” says Eli Stern (’20).“When you have a dub on your back, it adds to the excitement of the dance Saturday night.”

Make sure to come and support your fellow Falcons as they take on Del Campo Cougars Friday night at 7 PM at Sacramento City College Come pinked out and ready to hype up our boys to get the homecoming dub!

Without homecoming, and all the additions that come with it, students would not be able to live through a time in their high school career where their academics are not the priority, but instead come together as a community and spread school spirit. The Christian Brothers community, unlike any other highs school, supports and brings to life homecoming by being involved in all school activities, and making sure to give the most effort throughout the week.
