Damascus Middle School Students Show Their School Spirit!

A teacher places a crown on a student while several other students look on.The week of October 6-10 was a celebration of Homecoming spirit at Damascus Middle School!  Tying in with Holston High School’s theme of “There’s No Place Like Homecoming,” students celebrated with dress-up days throughout the week.  

The seventh- and eighth-grades tied for highest percentage of students dressing up, winning extra recess time!  Competition was fierce for door decorations with a pizza party up for grabs, and seventh-graders will be eating pizza!  Students who showed the most school spirit throughout the week were crowned grade-level Homecoming Spirit Kings and Queens, as follows:  Jordan L. and Seth S., sixth-grade; Laura W., Carson B., and Parker N., seventh-grade; and Amanda O., Kaitlyn W., and Ethan G., eighth-grade.  After a spirited pep rally which included an introduction of the cheerleaders and football and volleyball teams, a flash mob performed by teachers, and a dance routine and cheers led by the cheerleaders, students danced the rest of the afternoon away!  “There’s no place like”…Damascus Middle School for showing school spirit!
