It’s that time of year again for dress shopping, hair and makeup, and corsages for homecoming! For some it’s their first of many and for others it’s the last of their high school career. The students at Hilliard Bradley high school made sure everyone had a fun week with spirit days, pep rallies, and an amazing football. The students started the week off with a PJ day, VSCO girl day, class colors, grout fit and ended with a jersey day.  Many got to see

The week of fun and excitement led to a night of disco themed partying with friends in the gym and black jack in the commons. “For my first homecoming it was cool, I had a lot of fun taking pictures and eating

with my friends before coming to dance” noted Robert Snyder (9). Students had many options when at the dance with board games, card games but most importantly dancing! The DJ played some great tunes and students danced for hours and then enjoyed some drinks and snacks from our snack bar. “I liked doing the Cupid shuffle with all of the students” said Mr. Howard. Freshmen got to see what school dances are like at Bradley and seniors got to experience one of their last as the night came to an end and the music started to die down. 

Bradley’s students and teachers put in a ton of effort to make sure that the night was memorable and fun for

everyone. Most students would say,“homecoming was a really fun night” said Autumn Plikard (10). Homecoming was a fun and exciting night for all students and the Jaguar Times hopes that you and you friends enjoyed the night, and we hope our seniors had a magical memory filled night to help make their last year here at Bradley the best.
