  This year’s Beneath the Blue Homecoming definitely has LHS students hooked on school spirit. The week leading up to the dance has been filled with school pride and ocean themed excitement.

  The new and unique spirit days were kicked off with a Beach Day on Monday followed by Tropical Toons Tuesday, Squadruplet Wednesday and a preppy Yacht Club Day on Thursday.       

  The excitement continues to build as the dance approaches with the second annual Homecoming parade on Friday, featuring four under the sea style floats built by the members of each graduating class. Friday also hosts a school-wide pep rally in the new fieldhouse following the parade where the top three king and queen candidates will be announced. The second annual color powder party will also be held before the football game at 5 p.m.

  The main event, of course, is the dance held on Saturday evening. Students will be able to enjoy elegant ocean decorations carefully selected by StuCo, a new DJ and the presentation of the Homecoming king and queen. From the spirit days and parade, to the anticipation of the dance, Homecoming week has definitely made a splash at LHS.

Take a look to the left and take a look to the right. There are a LOT of Hawaiian shirts. It’s day one of Homecoming spirit week 2016 – Beach Day. This was the first of the spirit days and it started with a bang.

“I love spirit week. I love to see everyone’s different costumes and outfits, I think it’s fun,” sophomore Michaela Brooks said.

There was quite the variety of outfits from Hawaiian shirts, to swim trunks and lifeguarding outfits.

“I’m wearing this red ensemble with some white flowers and leaves, a lei that’s Prada multicolored and a nice hat from Santa Monica Pier,” Brooks said.

Spirit days are a wonderful opportunity to show school spirit, prepare for Homecoming, and have a good time dressing up with friends.

“It’s a good idea to support our school in any way possible and being involved is spirit week is fun,” freshman Whitney Lundy said.
