Not Your Traditional Homecoming Float

I am so lucky to work in an elementary school that sits on the same campus as our middle, Jr. High, and high school. All schools really get into showing our school spirit! This past week was homecoming week and that means a homecoming parade on Friday afternoon that we all get to enjoy! Last year, our high school started doing something a little different from the traditional homecoming floats. Each class pairs up with a class from the elementary school, middle school, and Jr high school to collect items to donate to various charities. These items become to center/theme of their float. For example, this year second grade was pair with the Jr. class to collect toothbrushes and toothpaste to "Brush Away The Competition". The class that collects the most items wins the float competition. This year I am excited to say that the Jr. class won with the help of second grade---the grade I teach! Here is a picture of the Senior Float: "Keeping The Tradition Rolling". They collected toilet paper and you can tell the trailor and bed of the truck is stacked FULL of toilet paper rolls! What a GREAT way to give back to our community while enjoying a little Homecoming fun and competition!

  1. What a great way to keep the spirit alive! In my hometown we did the same thing.


Giving Credit

"Teachers make great thieves"...ever heard that quote? It is a very true! Most of our great ideas are "stolen" from someone else. Not all ideas on this blog are mine. I try to give credit where credit is due. However, if you find that an idea should have been given credit but wasn't, please let me know.
