To celebrate Homecoming festivities, Conant held two assemblies on Sept 30, the last day before Homecoming. The morning assembly recognized all fall sports and featured performances from Conant Coed Cheerleading, Charrelles, Orchesis, and Theatre. Per Homecoming tradition, Conant teachers joined the mat with the cheer team for the annual student-teacher dance, Conant Theatre performed a preview of their fall musical “Anastasia,” and Charrelles featured a mashup of songs including the Space Jam theme song in homage to this year’s Homecoming theme.
The afternoon pep assembly held a competition between the Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes through a series of challenges and games. During the flashlight “rollercoaster” competition, class sections used their cell phones to create the best flashlight rollercoaster. Class sections also competed to see which grade level could pass beach balls through the bleachers the fastest. In the “Color Your Class” race, students competed to see which section could cover their bleachers with streamers first. Students also faced off in a table surfing competition, in which each grade level’s “rocketship” crossed the gym floor by surfing over rolling students. The Senior class emerged victorious as the winner of the Homecoming assembly competition.
