Redwood rejoices during annual homecoming week

Claire Silva

Homecoming week is a highly anticipated annual tradition, but due to last year’s unconventional Homecoming week in May, this year’s festivities harbored even more Redwood spirit than usual. Throughout the week, events were hosted to entertain students and get to know the 15 Homecoming court nominees. These lunchtime activities consisted of trivia, a relay race, Pictionary, karaoke and the annual Klassy Kickoff game, engaging students. On Thursday, Oct. 13, the Homecoming rally took place in the gym, a location seniors had not experienced since their freshman year. The event, led by teacher Jonathan Hirsch, showcased an exciting cheer team performance in addition to creative skits from each class. Unsurprisingly, the seniors were popular among the judges and won the contests for best skit and flag. The week gave students a much-needed opportunity for school-wide bonding and celebration. Following the football game and the crowning of Homecoming court winner, Jackson Bramlette, the first real Homecoming dance since 2018 capped off the spirit-filled week on Saturday night, which included music, food trucks and plenty of dancing.
