“Lights, Camera, Homecoming,” Fresno Christian’s 38th annual homecoming week has officially begun! The energetic week culminates October 27 with the FC Eagles facing the Orcutt Spartans. The week leading up to the big game and debut of the 2023 homecoming court will be filled with glamorous dress-up themes, competitive princess games, and a royal dance battle. 

As excitement for Homecoming week grows, leadership continues to prepare for the thrilling and hectic spirit week. Day two kicks off with students showing up “twinning” for

“Homecoming’s biggest challenge so far has been the postponement of the football games and Homecoming week,” said Blake Bridges. “With this being my last year, I love continuing to make memories with my classmates and seeing the rest of  student participation during dress-up week.” 

Princess Pageant: Castle Crashers 

Student leadership will set up lunch activities indoors and outdoors for the duration of homecoming week. Today princess candidates battled for bragging rights in a game of Castle Crashers. 

Castle Crashers is a game where candidates wear inflatable plastic bubbles and attempt to knock over their opponent’s “castles,” while also aiming to protect their own. The game continues until there is only one “castle” left standing. Sarah Guglielmana, ‘26, bested her

fellow candidates, defeating Addyson Adler, ‘25, and Anna Pascual, ‘27, in the Castle Crashers finals. 

“Personally, I thought I was going to lose,” Guglielmana said. “I was really excited! It was kind of embarrassing, but I’m glad to have played and won. It was exciting but stressful!”

Sophomore Float

To go along with homecoming’s Hollywood theme, students were tasked with designing floats featuring a movie of the class’ choice. This year’s sophomores voted to build a Batman-themed float. James Emerian, ’26, offered up his backyard as a construction zone for the past few weeks as the class designed, built, and decorated their float. 

Caleb Eldridge, ’26, a member of the sophomore float building committee sacrificed many hours of free time to commit to preparing the class float.

“I’m so excited to see the finished product,” Eldridge said. “My favorite part so far has been day by day seeing [the float] grow and come together into what we imagined it to be.”
