Homecoming Spirit Week

November 9, 2020

Homecoming Spirit Week is a long-standing tradition at South Forsyth High School. Each day of the week, students dress up in different outfits to display their school spirit. This year, spirit week was intertwined with National Red Ribbon Week. Along with encouraging drug awareness and prevention, students and faculty showcased their school pride leading up to the Homecoming Game against Gainesville High School. Each day of the week was dedicated to a different yet exciting theme! On Monday, students dressed up in different shades of red in honor of Red Ribbon Week. Tuesday was Jersey Day; students wore their favorite sports’ spirit wear, shining their team’s colors all day. Decade’s Day on Wednesday was a throwback to the past. The halls were filled with outfits from the 50s, 80s, 90s, and more! Although school was canceled on Thursday due to Hurrican Zeta, students showed up on Friday in their grade’s colors and with high spirits.

“My favorite part of spirit week is feeling the excited anticipation from our student body leading up to the Homecoming game,” said senior Dawn Torow. “My favorite day was Decades Day because there is a lot of creative liberty. When I told everyone I was dressing up as a person from the 70s, my friends were really surprised when I wore a dress from the 1770s.”

Students were very excited to dress up to different themes throughout the week to showcase their school spirit. Those who participated in Spirit Week were entered into a raffle for a chance to win Chick-Fil-A gift cards. While spirit week was cut short due to inclement weather, students were able to display their SOFO spirit during the other days of the week. 

“My favorite part of Homecoming Week is the crowning of both the faculty king and queen and the homecoming king and queen,” said Ms. McGray, sponsor for SFHS student council. “During spirit week, my favorite day to dress up was Decades Day!”
