The freshmen had 700 points coming in third place.  At 425 points the sophomores came last. The seniors and juniors got first and second in the variety show. The senior’s parade float got first as well.  Classes earn points based on dress-up day participation, Variety Show skit, parade float, and sheet decorating competition.

Lily McMullin, a senior says, “My favorite dress up day was dress like you’re 70.” McMullin liked wearing a grandma sweater, tiny glasses, and a wig. She says she likes the creativity of everyone else during Spirit Week.

Freshman, Paislee Potter said she looked forward to seeing people’s creativity during the dress-up day. She said she was excited for her very first Homecoming week. Potter’s favorite part was talking to different people about their outfits and seeing everyone’s creativity during the fun dress-up days like “Dress Like You’re 70” and “70s Day”. Potter says she enjoyed her first homecoming and the activities she participated in.

Senior, Nicole Barger attended her fourth and last Homecoming at Limestone. Barger enjoyed this year’s theme and spirit days.   “The favorite band tee day was my favorite spirit day.  I thought it was fun to see everyone’s band shirts and which ones they liked, said Barger.

Limestone’s student council faculty adviser Tara Stout helped organize most of the activities for homecoming excluding the parade, football game, or the hall of fame inductions. “Seniors seem to have more confidence with the dress-up days.  Easier dress-up days like class color days kind of everyone jumps in on those days, but the days outside the norm of dressing, seniors, and juniors seem to have more confidence doing it.”
