During the recent Homecoming Week at Bremen High School in Midlothian, students had no problem getting into the theme “The Wild West” as evidenced by hallway decorations and daily dress themes.
The week was highlighted by a hoedown at the Battle of the Classes, which pitted each class against each other to battle for class pride and help the community. Admission was a canned good or a gently worn article of clothing.
During the battle, each class participated in a series of fun and challenging contests sponsored by student clubs.
Students rode tricycles, balanced blocks, danced a hoedown, shot three-pointers on the Wii, had a pirate showdown and competed against one another to determine which class could perform the loudest and most energetic rendition of the school fight song.
Between events, entertainment was provided by the Bremen Diversity Steppers, cheerleaders, pom squad, the Real Men Can Dance troupe and the Bremen band/color guard.
The junior class donated the most canned goods and usable clothing and won the overall event with 90 points. More than 10 tubs of canned goods were collected and given to the Illinois Veterans Foundation. Also, more than 20 bags of clothing were donated for the Code of the Braves’ annual garage sale.
