IT’S A FULL WEEK OF SCHOOL SPIRIT, COMPETITIONS, AND ACTIVITIES!

We've Got Spirit-How 'Bout You?

Dress code is in effect during Homecoming; modest dress is still expected and required of all
students. It is a privilege to have a full week of celebrating with dress up days. All outfits for
Spirit Days should be appropriate for ALCS as a Christian school.

  • Monday: Disney Day – Wear your favorite Disney gear today.
  • Tuesday: Country vs. Country Club Day – It’s time to pick a side and dress that
    way. Are you on team country or team country club? Dress in your best country
    attire or your fancy country club attire.
  • Wednesday: Generation’s Day – See the generation assignments below and have
    fun dressing like the generation assigned to your grade.

Staff – dress in the decade you were born
Middle School – dress like your parents
Freshman – dress like toddlers
Sophomores – dress like college students
Juniors – dress like sports parents (soccer moms & dads)
Seniors – dress like a senior citizen

  • Thursday: Dress Like a Teacher Day – Maybe you have a favorite teacher or
    maybe you want to be a teacher in the future. Now is your time to shine and dress
    like a teacher.
    • TEACHERS & STAFF - Today is your day to be a student again. You get to dress like a student
  • Friday: ALCS Challenger Spirit Day – A-L-C-S, say it again now … A-L-C-S! Be bold! Be proud! You are the Challengers, so show your school spirit and rock this place in red, white, and black!

Donuts...Get Your Donuts!

Each morning will offer a selection of delicious donuts as well as fresh coffee and hot chocolate on sale to our students, families, and friends. Families may pre-order donuts to bless co-workers, friends, neighbors, etc.

Each class will work one day of the sale and compete to sell the most items on their day. The winning class receives 25% of the proceeds from the total sale for their class!
