COLUMBIA — Battle High School celebrated its first Homecoming Spirit Week with the pomp and flair high school homecomings are known for, despite the lack of alumni to welcome home. Because this was the school's inaugural homecoming, it was the responsibility of the current students to develop the traditions that will be passed to future generations.

Each day of Spirit Week had a different theme, for which the students and faculty dressed up, including superheroes, decades, celebrities and twins. The week culminated in a day featuring Spartan attire.
