Hometown Motors wins 2016 Bulldog Spirit Award

Though the combined efforts of the staff and students at Sundance High School and the community of Sundance, we experienced a “fan”tastic Homecoming week. The Student Council would like to say thanks to all who helped and participated in the events scheduled that week. The Spirit Award was based on two separate categories: 1) Window painting and 2) Parade entry. Hometown Motors emerged victorious and was awarded the first laser wall hanging created by students and staff in the school’s shop.

One of the Student Council officers, Aubrey Shelling Hoard, said, “Every business did a great job. We could tell effort was put into the decorating. Next year, we will judge based on overall appearance and not just window paint!”

With the return of the parade, Student Council has decided to reduce some of their responsibilities for Homecoming by omitting the Community Pep Rally prior to Coronation. “We spread ourselves a bit thin this year, with an elementary pep rally, two pep rallies at school plus Bulldog Olympics. We think the community has a better chance to enjoy our school spirit with the parade,” said Ms. Jordan, Student Council adviser. Jordan continued, “We couldn’t have asked for better weather or response from the community during Homecoming week.”
