Homecoming Dress-Up Days Dress Code:

Please note: Dress-up and spirit days are designed to enhance the Homecoming experience. Students are urged to participate, but are reminded not to abuse the Homecoming spirit through flagrant violations of the district’s dress code. Make-up that makes a student unrecognizable (masks, etc) or make-up that depicts blood or injuries is not allowed. Dress appropriately - the Volusia county dress code will be enforced throughout the week.

Field Night:

Homecoming Field Night 2016
Thursday, September 22 6-8pm
Spruce Creek High School Gym

  • Hungry Hippos: The classic board game comes to life! This game will consist of a team of pushers/pullers and ball collectors. The ball collectors will be rolled out on a scooter by the pushers and have to collect as many balls as they can from the center of the ring using only a basket. The team with the most balls win. (6)


  • Tug O War: Single Elimination in style but still a spruce creek field night classic that will test your club team to its breaking point! Teams are made up of 10 members with 6 males maximum per team. Are you ready to win the tug o war this year?


  • The Dizzy Dash: A relay of 5 contestants per team with a dizzying twist! Each contestant must spin around a baseball bat 10 times before they can try to race across the gym to a chair with a balloon. There you must try to pop the balloon as quickly as possible and once accomplished, can race back to your team to tag the next contestant in.


  • The Elephant Game: A race with a team that consists of five people. Each turn the team must run around a cone and each turn another team member is added, but they must stay in contact with each other by holding hands through ones leg.


  • Dodgeball: Single elimination dodgeball. Your team will have to dodge, dip, dive, and duck their way to victory.



*Club teams accumulate points through their performance during each event (1st place= 4 points, 2nd= 3 points, 3rd=2 points, 4th= 1 point). The club team with the overall most points at the end of the night is awarded the legendary Golden Can! Ties for point-awarded places will result with both teams receiving equal points but places below 5th will receive 0 points for that event. HOWEVER, awards will be granted for the superlatives of Best Dressed, Most Spirited, and Fan Favorite.
