Woodcreek High School celebrated a week of spirit days during their Homecoming festivities held last week. Students were encouraged to dress up for Safari Day and Space Day, wrapping up with a bonfire, football game against Bear River High School and Saturday’s Homecoming dance. “Our Homecoming weeks are always very busy and spirited…they’re crazy,” said Woodcreek High School’s activities director Kim Bair. Friday’s events included a Black Light rally where glow sticks, bracelets and necklaces were distributed to students donned in all white for Ice Day, Friday’s spirit theme. Bair said that the rally was especially energetic as entertainment included a performance by the school’s band, dance team, cheer squad and a comedic skit and dance routine performed by faculty dressed up as cheerleaders. Also during Friday’s rally was a scream competition between the students. “There was a lot of screaming…and looking at the glow lights, but mostly screaming,” Bair said. Students participated in building floats that were presented during halftime of the football game Friday evening. The seniors, incorporating a jungle theme, won best design in the float competition. Also during halftime was the announcement of the homecoming court. Seniors Gabby Fastiggi and Clinton Brill were crowned Homecoming queen and king. The Timberwolves defeated the Bruins with a finishing score of 38-28. Around the World was the theme for Saturday evening’s homecoming dance held in the Woodcreek gymnasium. According to Bair more than 1,000 students attended this year’s Homecoming dance. Decorations included portions from each of the student-decorated floats, which in addition to the senior jungle decorations featured themes like cities, space and ice. “Homecoming week is fun, it’s always a lot of fun for everyone,” Bair said.
