On Friday, Jan. 27, New Summerfield Independent School District held its homecoming festivities. It was held by student council and the PTO. All class favorites were involved. We had grades pre-K and Headstart all the way to 10th grade class favorites.

The homecoming court was made up of juniors and seniors, and festivities began at 5 p.m. We had a good crowd show up for the festivities. David Suarez and Teresa Ornelas were named Homecoming King and Queen of 2006.

Since New Summerfield is a small school, it is times like these where it is good to see alumni come back and visit with old friends. At this homecoming, the school had Mr. Armen Darby, a 96-year-old gentleman who was part of the first basketball team here in New Summerfield. Darby attended back in 1924. He also brought with him a few pictures from those teams. It was nice time. The PTO presented Darby with a small gift.

We had many people comment that it was nice to see the whole school involved in the homecoming. I told them that we would continue having the class favorites in the homecoming and maybe next year we will have more activities.

A homecoming dance sponsored by the student council and PTO followed the game. We had a good turnout at the dance as well. The dance ended at around 11:30 p.m.
