Homecoming Prep Builds Student Connection

Homecoming Prep Builds Student Connection

Every year Tracy High School has many events that lead up to the homecoming game, one of the most important being the flower parties.

The flower parties took place the week prior to homecoming allowing students to help build floats for the upcoming homecoming parade. Each grade level is designated a specific location for float building.

Students begin by signing in through the 5-star app on their phones, then head to their designated area. The flower parties are a good chance for students to get to know one another and to bond outside of school hours.

“I think that homecoming is the best part of the year, and I love to be involved and see all of the students’ creativity as they work hard to prepare for homecoming,” Brittany Baron, senior flower party director, said.

Haley Nunes’ favorite part of the flower parties is working alongside her classmates. Many other people come for the same reason, and they like to be with their friends while still participating in the school activities.

Flower parties aren’t just about building the floats, they also give students time to prepare and focus on the skit for the night rally. The night rally allows kids to participate and perform in front of their friends and family on the night of Wednesday, Sep. 27, after school. There are a lot of performers practicing for their time in the spotlight.

A lot of time and preparation go into the skit, seeing as everyone must learn and be able to do the same thing in sync with each other which could take a few tries. While each class is practicing their night rally routine they’re coming up with creative ideas to help the groups perform.

“The experience that comes out of it while reuniting with each other, working together and bonding over painting and skits, “ Leilani Ruvalcaba stated.

The night rally is a chance for students to spend quality time together and to connect in ways they didn’t know they could.
