Heritage Hall “TropicHall” Homecoming

by Saif Salim '20

Last week, Heritage Hall celebrated its “TropicHall” homecoming with a festive week of activities, including Upper School dress up days and class competitions and an all-school assembly. 

On Monday, Upper School students embraced trends from decades past with elaborate hairstyles and an abundance of denim. Class competitions kicked off with hilarious cup stacking and donut on a string challenges. 

The fun continued Tuesday with friends coordinating their outfits for Dynamic Duo Day, resulting in a hodgepodge of famous pairings. A game of Don’t forget the Lyrics ended in a fierce standoff between the seniors and juniors, with the latter prevailing.

It was a sea of color on Thursday as students dressed in their class colors gathered outside the Upper School for an epic tug-of-war contest eventually won by the seniors.

On Friday, Chargers of all ages were treated to the always popular Lip Sync performances during the all-school assembly. That evening, prior to the football game, seniors Phillip Smitherman and Candy Yuan were crowned Homecoming King and Queen. To the delight of Charger fans, Heritage Hall then went on to win their homecoming matchup with John Marshall by a score of 50-14. 

On Saturday, Upper School students dressed as mermaids, pirates, and in other “TropicHall” costumes culminated the week with a spectacular dance sponsored by Heritage Hall’s Student Council. 

With that, another homecoming has come and gone, but the unforgettable memories will live on!
