The BFA Fairfax community has been alive with spirit and enthusiasm this week as we celebrate 2021 Homecoming! After nearly two years of modifications, cancellations, and other Covid-related challenges, it has been heartwarming to see the vibrance and excitement of our student body and greater community at various events. Although still in a slightly modified format to ensure safety, this week has been a taste of normalcy, and served as a reminder of all that is great about High School in the fall.
Leaders from the BFA Fairfax Student Council established a number of activities for the student body including daily theme days (Class Color Day, Throwback Thursday, Maroon & White Day, etc.) as well as fun Pep Rally activities during Flex Block on Thursday and Friday.
After a year hiatus due to Covid 19 safety concerns, the ever-popular Fairfax Relays costume race kicked off the week’s Homecoming athletic events on Tuesday, October 5th. This annual celebration of the Vermont running community brings schools and teams of all sizes together for a day of fun and competition.
Friday October 8 will host the homecoming games for girls soccer, with the JV facing CVU, and Varsity facing Oxbow at 4pm. Saturday October 9 will round out the homecoming games with JV Boys Soccer facing U32 at 10am, Varsity Boys Soccer facing Craftsbury at 12pm, and Football facing Mill River at 2pm.
The athletic events of the week are also serving as the Senior recognition games/events, allowing us to celebrate the numerous contributions of the Class of 2022!
Finally, all students in grades 9-12 will have the opportunity to round out Homecoming 2021 at the Fall Harvest Festival being held immediately following the football game on Saturday. Food, games, prizes, and a live DJ will be on hand to bring this celebratory week to a close.
Thank you to everyone in the community who has helped make this week a success! We look forward to seeing you at this weekend’s events. Go Fairfax!
