BATTLE RISING: Battle rings in first homecoming with superhero costumes

Battle High's Homecoming started with students and teachers wearing superhero costumes on Monday.

COLUMBIA — What does Homecoming look like for a school that doesn’t have any alumni to welcome home?

For Battle High School, its first homecoming week looks just like any other traditional high school so far with one slight twist — the students are largely involved in deciding what the traditions will be for future generations of Battle Spartans.

So far:

  • Rather than being elected, homecoming queens had to apply and campaign during a two-round elimination process.
  • The homecoming dance will be held in the cafeteria area rather than the school gym.
  • There is a different dress up day every day this week leading up to the homecoming game on Friday.

The Missourian will be taking portraits of the Spartans in their spirit wear throughout this week and will run a few photos throughout the week leading up to a multimedia piece that will feature the portraits. 

Supervising Editor is Brian Kratzer.
