It’s that time. Teens plotting and planning for Homecoming (or Newcoming for my George Ranch friends). Do I ask a date OR do I attend with a group of friends. School groups are organizing dinners and mum-making-parties…….it’s a fun time. It can also be a stressful time for all. My “newcoming” friends are all doing this for the first time since they were in high school – which is kind of funny (wasn’t so funny for me 3 years ago -ha!) to watch. I have to mention out loud – my friends at George Ranch in LCISD – who have found a way for their kids to do what all the other schools are doing, but under a VERY creative name. NEWCOMING. They are a new school, only has freshman – juniors this year. So technically, there is NO ONE COMING HOME! Thus the newcoming…..
Austin High School, where my kids attend, has this down to a science. ProGrad takes orders, assembles and sells Homecoming mums. I think that is an AWESOME idea. What a great fundraiser. Students and moms – maybe some dads, who knows, put this together.
The Austin Angels, the dance team at AHS, are putting on a Homecoming Dinner & Auction. Food by Pappas BBQ. Another great Texas tradition – bbq and football. Dinner tickets are going to be sold September 26-30 in the AHS Commons AND by all members of the Austin Angels. These tickets are ONLY $10. What a deal! Entertainment by the Angels, dinner by Pappas AND an Auction? I know where I expect to see all my friends on October 12th. Homecoming is that weekend, and yes, I realize my kids have a swim meet that weekend that has a location of TBA. Ugh!
