Parades, spirited dressing announce homecomings


Football season brings homecomings. Homecomings bring parades. And parades bring school spirit—and, of course, music!

Students at Maine South High School in Park Ridge, Illinois, were greeted in the hallway by the school’s marching band, shown in the Twitter video. The band had just performed at a Homecoming Parade on the streets around the school Saturday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

In Maryland, homecoming festivities are also in full gear. The celebratory week starts Monday at Centennial High School in Ellicott City, reports Abby Conrad in the school’s student newspaper.

Monday has been dubbed “Clock In, Clock Out” day, meaning freshmen and sophomores wear professional, business casual dress and juniors and seniors wear pajamas. To school. That’s right.

They’re also conducting a decades day Friday, on which students in each year will wear clothes from a different decade, starting with seniors who will be encouraged to dress as if they’re living in the 1970s.
