Homecoming week was nothing if not jam-packed with activities, athletics and extracurriculars to keep students, staff and administrators busy. There was something for everyone to enjoy, no matter what interests you.
The West Forsyth Drama Department presented their fall one-act plays on Oct. 13 and 15. “I am Angel” debuted at 6 p.m. and featured an angel who cut off her wings to fit in, but then has to make a choice about whether to take them back to help a friend of hers. “The Hearing” was held directly afterwards, at 7 p.m., and was about a court case between the representatives of Order and Chaos, where three people out of the eight presented by the representatives of Order had to willingly sacrifice themselves to reverse the death of a famous doctor with numerous character flaws who was predicted to cure cancer later in his life. Along with the ticket sales, the Drama Department was selling snacks and asking for donations to fund new lights for the Performing Arts Center (PAC), hoping to have enough funding by the end of the school. The Chorus Department was also assisting in this endeavor, selling popcorn and stainless-steel ware to raise funds.
West’s Concert Choir also had the opportunity to perform at the WS/FCS Board of Education meeting on Oct. 11, presenting one of their fall concert pieces, “Earth Song” by Frank Ticheli. Concert Choir, along with the rest of the Chorus Department, held their fall concert on Oct. 18.
The Titans showed school spirit throughout the week with the 2022-23 Spirit Week themes. Monday kicked off the week with Adam Sandler Day, followed by Tuesday as Country vs. Preppy Day and the return of the Powder Puff football game after a two-year hiatus, Wednesday as Decade Day, Thursday as Frat Boy Day, and Friday as the annual Green and Gold Day. Classes got out early on Friday for the Homecoming Pep Rally, where all of the Titans’ clubs and athletics paraded down the track on the football field. The parade was followed by performances by the band, drumline, cheerleaders and dance team, and four inflatable bubble ball games between four senior girls, four senior boys, four female staff members and four male staff members. The week closed out under the lights of the football stadium, where the Homecoming court was announced at halftime, and the Titans knocked off Davie 34-31.
With Homecoming week done and dusted, there are only a couple more weeks until the first quarter of the 2022-23 school comes to a close, and the Titans begin the march towards the holiday season.
