From Bexley City Schools, emailed on September 8, 2022:
Homecoming Week kicks off on Monday, September 12, a time when the high school student body demonstrates school pride and support of each other while cheering at athletic events, participating in activities, and attending the dance.
Note of Respect & Student Expectations
We encourage our students to have fun during Homecoming Week, but having fun at the expense of others and their property is not acceptable. In the past, some students have taken advantage of the special events to the detriment of our community by taking property from yards of private homes. It is important for students to understand that vandalism and theft are not ways to show school pride, but are destructive and illegal. We have high expectations for our students and expect them to act respectfully to others and their property at all times.
We take many opportunities to encourage students to make good decisions and educate them on our expectations. Still, Bexley community members and homeowners may want to keep Homecoming Week activities in mind and remove yard signs or lawn ornaments during the upcoming week. Any homeowners who experience vandalism are encouraged to contact the high school at (614) 231-4591 to share information.
Homecoming Top Ten Seniors Selected
Seniors recently selected 10 of their fellow seniors to be considered for the 2022 Homecoming Monarch. The top 5, selected by the junior class, will make up the 2022 Homecoming Court and will be honored during next Friday’s football game against Buckeye Valley. The Homecoming Monarch, as voted by all high school students, will be crowned at halftime.
