HOMECOMING 2019:  WE HAD SPIRIT, YES WE DID!

On Monday, September 30, All Saints Episcopal School kicked off a week of homecoming festivities that concluded with a fun-filled high school dance.

Beginning Monday, All Saints students got in the homecoming spirit by trading their daily uniforms for fun themed outfits.  The week began with Western wear and ended with Red, White, and Blue.

On Homecoming morning, the school spirit started early… very early for some!  Our loyal Blue Crew members jumped out of bed before many of their classmates to get to work lining the campus with Patriot flags!   Our community was greeted with flags and a campus alive with spirit!

The excitement and school spirit continued with an all-school pep rally at 2:15 p.m. featuring impressive performances by our cheer and dance teams, a fun drumline competition between the students and faculty members, games, an introduction of our middle school and high school fall teams & the All Saints 2019 Homecoming Court:  Ellyn Brashear, Elise Headrick, Kate King, Ella Moran, Sam Aycock, Austin Farnsworth, Jackson Janes, and Garrett Matthews.

Friday’s festivities continued with an inaugural Homecoming Parade led by the All Saints Drumline.  The winner of the float decorating contest was the Middle School Cross Country team.  The parade concluded in the high school parking lot, with the smell of burgers and hot dogs on the grill! Sophomore parent Cliff Hillin, junior parent Neil Moore, and many ASES Booster Club members served up some great burgers and hotdogs that fed several hungry Patriots.

The football game began at 5:00 with a hard-fought game against Whiteface. We came up just short of a victory.  In the midst of all of the excitement, our cheer teams put on a great show and entertained the crowd with school spirit and Patriot Pride!  The highlight of the evening took place at halftime with the crowning of our 2019 Homecoming Queen Elise Headrick and Homecoming King Jackson Janes.  Following the football game, the JV and Varsity volleyball teams were victorious over Southcrest.  The game also featured with more performances by our cheer squads.

The grand finale of homecoming week came with Saturday’s All Saints High School Homecoming Dance.  The theme of this year’s dance was “Gold and Silver”.  The fun started at 7:30 p.m. and went until 10:00 p.m. with the kids sharing several laughs and a few dance moves.

Homecoming week was a blast, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Patriots, current, and past, who came to participate in the fun. A special Thank you to Angie Lane and Dee Paone!  These ladies spearheaded the homecoming events this year and brought great ideas, hard work, and a lot of fun to our campus!  Thank you, ladies!  Also, thank you to the All Saints Community, for your continued support.  We can’t wait to see you at Homecoming 2020!
