Homecoming 2023: Seniors hold annual Blue Bomb to celebrate the end of Homecoming week

The senior class decorated the foyer Friday, Sept. 22

Blue Bomb was held Friday, Sept. 22 by the senior class, marking the end of Homecoming week. To continue the tradition, seniors arrived at the school by 6 a.m. to cover the foyer in all things blue. Senior Lanie Dewitte describes what happens during Blue Bomb.

“Blue Bomb is a tradition that seniors do on the Friday of Homecoming week where they decorate the school and dress up in all blue and make a mess,” Dewitte said. “Then they have a mosh pit where they sing and dance.”

According to senior Violet Hentges, Blue Bomb is an important tradition that the seniors look forward to. 

“Blue Bomb is a big tradition for seniors because we’ve been looking forward to it all of high school and it really shows our school spirit,” Hentges said. “I brought blue paint and streamers. I used the paint on people’s faces and also wrote senior on my legs. A lot of people used streamers as decorations by throwing them off of the stairs.”

Additionally, Dewitte explains why her favorite part of Blue Bomb was the mosh pit.  

“My favorite part of Blue Bomb was the mosh pit,” Dewitte said. “It was so much fun to dance and sing with my friends and have all of the students and teachers watching and taking pictures.” 

Overall, Hentges explains why Blue Bomb was a special memory for her. 

“My favorite part of Blue Bomb was making such a special memory,” Hentges said. “I feel like it helped the senior class grow closer and it was something that I will always remember.”
