The return of Homecoming brought our entire community together again, and you could feel the Husky spirit all weekend long. With the opening of the new Peterson Middle School, the terrace provided the perfect gathering place to watch the games and quickly became the place to be during the Friday night bonfire festivities! The expansive terrace hosted a record turnout of families. The Den, the newest concession stand, offered parent volunteers vistas of the Peterson Family Field and the best spot to make new connections and provide our favorite game day treats. From organizing the school store and handing out glow giveaways to serving hot chocolate and selling concessions in The Den, our parent volunteers were everywhere, bringing the spirit of Homecoming back for 2021.
All the activities and athletic games were exciting to watch, but what was most special was all the moments in between: seeing new families enjoy our Homecoming traditions for the first time, watching friendships forged between parents in The Den, listening to the grilling team sing along to music while cooking up burgers and hot dogs and hearing alumni and families share stories from years past. There was something for everyone to experience, and it was refreshing to witness the pure joy that exuded throughout the weekend. It’s those little moments we had missed most, and it felt so wonderful to enjoy them together again as a Flint Hill family.
