It was the culmination of Spirit Week, when each day had a theme; comfy clothes day, gym warrior day, Sparta Pride where students wore team jerseys or other Spartan Spirit wear.  Friday night, the students returned to school for a Rally of the Classes. 

At halftime the nominees from each class were announced and escorted onto the field by members of their family or friends. The marching band provided a backdrop for the homecoming court.
