Homecoming Day 6

It was that time of year again where Saint Genevieve Parish Schools paraded down Roscoe Boulevard for its annual Homecoming Parade. Students and faculty were in high spirits as each class began their day building floats and later showing off that Valiant Spirit to Panorama City. The parade was a great end to yet another wonderful Homecoming Week.

It took a lot of blood, sweat, and hard work to create homecoming  week. For the seniors, many were left emotional, as most of them realized this is their last ever Saint Genevieve Homecoming Week.

“How I feel about this being my last [homecoming] is kind of bittersweet since it’s my last time walking down Roscoe but also since I won’t be able to have that experience again of being partScreen Shot 2015-11-01 at 4.25.53 PM of the crowd,” said Desiree Rangel. “What I will miss most is probably the enthusiasm about cheering for others.”

As the parade commenced, classes cheered, the choir sang, and the band played. Once students began walking onto oncoming traffic, many drivers honked in support instead  honking in anger. The walk lasted two-miles  under the warm California sun. Even though it wasn’t a mandatory day of school, many still showed up just to support the game.

“We kicked off to a slow start, but once everything got rolling, homecoming turned out to be a lot of fun,” said Olivia Garcia. “I tried making the most of it knowing it was my last, even if it meant yelling while I was sick.”

Once students  finally saw the Poly High School sign, many students were excited, knowing that theyhave finally arrived. Even though the odds were not in the Valiants favor at the end of the night, students’ enthusiasm and energy did not wane.
