On Saturday night, the high school had over 80% of its students in attendance for its Homecoming Dance. The dance concluded a great week, with the Class of 2019 winning the Homecoming games by 100 points over the next closest class (the Class of 2020). Thank you to the students for showing the Wildcat Way throughout the week and to the staff, especially Mrs. Tretow, for all of their extra efforts.

Thursday was Pajama Day for Belleville's Homecoming Week. The middle school participated in "Body Words" during the lunch games. The 8th grade won and now has a 488-328 lead over the 7th grade. The seniors extended their Homecoming games lead with another victory in dodgeball at lunchtime. We hope to see you at tonight's pep rally, before the week winds down with the parade, football game, and dance!

Wednesday was a day for both the middle and high school students to release some of their Homecoming energy during the lunch games. The middle school played a spirited game of dodgeball (7th grade vs. 8th grade), and the high school competed in the tug-of-war. The juniors, with superiority in both numbers and strength, easily overwhelmed the other classes and "pulled" out a victory!

Tuesday of Homecoming Week featured the first set of lunch games for both the middle and high school students. Seventh grade boys and girls played their eighth grade counterparts in kickball. While at the high school games, the senior class came out victorious in the class volleyball matches. Stay tuned for updates from Wednesday's and Thursday's games!

While many schools have cancelled or refused to sanction girls' Powderpuff football games in recent years due to poor sportsmanship, Belleville High School's game on the Monday night of Homecoming Week is still competitive but fun! The football players serve as coaches, and staff members referee the contests. It is a great way to begin the week.
To begin Homecoming Week 2018, each class presents a rock and wall to be judged. The opponent for both football and volleyball this week is Cambridge, so the themes are geared toward the Blue Jays. Overall, the judges were impressed with the students' spirit!

Similar to the 8th grade field trip to Bethel Horizons on Wednesday, the 7th grade traveled there today to participate in the Low Ropes Challenge. Bethel's team takes the students through warm-ups, icebreakers, and team- & trust-building activities designed for students to work and think together through beams, cables, and ropes. Once again, the weather was spectacular for this 7th grade bonding experience!
