High school homecoming goes virtual

Updated November 25, 2020 - 3:48 pm

In the midst of a pandemic, social distancing and distance learning, Boulder City High School found a way to celebrate Homecoming 2020 and crown the court by way of a virtual pep rally.

The pep rally was streamed on YouTube, Facebook Live and other social media sites on Friday, Nov. 20, according to BCHS Principal Amy Wagner. The event featured members of the court and the king and queen participating in games at home.

“We always do games or dances for homecoming,” said Wagner. “This time we just did it virtually.”

The virtual pep rally also included a video of someone dressed in a shark costume running around the empty school. Students guessed who it was, and the winner received a gift card. Additionally, the new teachers participated in the pep rally by each of them singing a portion of the high school fight song.

Wagner said the event went so well she plans to have more virtual pep rallies while the school is doing distance learning.

Home Matters: New year brings new projects

Home projects are never-ending and can easily become overwhelming when the to-do list starts piling up higher than the laundry bin. The best way projects should be tackled is to first consider them seasonally. Should I check my attic during the summer, when its temperature can exceed 150 degrees? Along with time of year, consider order of importance. Is it more important that I paint my bathroom or fix the leaky shower that’s been dripping for two months?

If you’re only going to make two cookie recipes this holiday season, may I humbly suggest these two scrumptious cookies? One is the ultimate deep rich chocolate cookie; the second is the ultimate buttery soft vanilla cookie. They are so perfectly compatible yet totally different. And the cherry on top is one uses three egg whites and the other three egg yolks. It’s like it was meant to be.
