Every year during homecoming week, the students at Central pull out their best ideas and creativity and dress in solid color that represents their class. For example, those dressed in nothing but purple are juniors, those in togas are seniors, and the waves of green and yellow are freshmen and sophomores.
It’s not hard to dress up for Class Color Day. It’s actually simple. Whatever color you have on your ID is the color you wear. Some like to show their school spirit by being fully covered in their colors, others just wear a simple colored shirt. Either way, it shows that many love participating on this day because it’s a simple way to dress up without having to empty your wallet.
For freshmen, you have to wear green. It’s the traditional color for freshmen. If you wear orange, we’ll still identify you as a freshman but it would be standard to wear green. You can go to the extremes and create a shirt, showing off your spirit, and whatever you put on your shirt is up to you (as long as it is school appropriate).
Sophomores: well, you get to wear yellow. It could be neon yellow with a black numbering or font and you could wear dark pants with it.
Juniors get to wear purple, which seems to be a favorite color for most. Some in years past would wear purple shoes, purple pants, and shirts with purple paint on the face, and that is definitely some school spirit!
For seniors, we get to wear togas. Some like being especially creative during this dress up day. Some will come to school dressed up in multi-colored sheets, while otehrs will go and buy fabric or sheets and will come to school with extra accessories such as olive-branch crowns and belts. There are many ideas online if you’re the type of person who isn’t as creative. Have fun with it though and if you don’t know how to tie a toga, go to any drama student or Mr. Speck. They tie togas for a living.
Whether you participate or not is up to you, but don’t be left out of the fun for this part of homecoming. Dress up for the remaining theme days or attend the events: homecoming is only once a year.
