If you would like a copy of any of the pictures, please e-mail calvarez@oakhall.org with the day of the week, category, column, and row (or, you can count which number the picture is from the first one of the category). We wish there was an easier way to tell us which picture(s) you would like, but currently, there isn’t. We apologize for any inconvenience. 😦

Saturday night officially ended Homecoming Week, as Upper School students danced the night away at the Gainesville Women’s Club. The gentlemen looked dapper, while the ladies looked stunning!

Homecoming week wrapped up on campus on Friday, Oct. 18, with the Homecoming parade, pep rally, Fall for the Arts celebration, football game, and everyone decked out in their spirit gear! Prior to the game, the football team of 1979, and coach John Clifford, were recognized, as they are the only team in Oak Hall history to win districts! During halftime, Emma Anderson and Collin Ponton were crowned Homecoming Queen and King. To top off a fantastic day, the Eagles were victorious on the field, defeating Rocky Bayou Christian 49-14.

Thursday, Oct. 17 brought with it an incredibly exciting dodgeball tournament, between the Upper School grades and teachers from all divisions that wanted to participate. For the second day in a row, the juniors were victorious, defeating the other grades, and the faculty team! One of the best highlights was Mr. Pickens, the lone faculty dodge baller, vs. three juniors. While Mr. Pickens got one of the juniors out, he was no match for the other two students.

On the other side of campus, the ECLC and Lower School celebrated Wacky Sock Thursday, and the Middle Schoolers went back in time with Throwback Thursday.

Tomorrow is the big spirit day! The Homecoming Parade starts at 1 p.m. in the Lower School parking lot, and goes to the Upper School circle. Right after is the all-school pep rally in the gym. Don’t forget the tailgate extravaganza known as Fall For The Arts Friday night from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.; with the varsity football team taking on Rocky Bayou Christian at 7 p.m. Go Eagles!

Wacky Wednesday was the theme for the Middle School on Wednesday, Oct. 16. The ECLC and Lower School students showed off their wacky hats, while the Upper School took a different approach to this Homecoming day as students dressed up as either a VSCO girl or an Eboy.


The Upper School gentlemen displayed their volleyball skills during lunch, as part of the Powderbuff Boys Volleyball Tournament. Ultimately, it was the juniors vs. the seniors for the championship, with the juniors crushing the senior boys by the score of 10-1.

On Tuesday, Oct. 15, the Middle and Upper School students showed off their best tropical gear, while the ECLC and Lower School students channeled their inner hippie by wearing tie-dye!

During lunch in the Upper School, the homecoming court played the Newlyweds Game! If a couple got an answer incorrect, one of the two then participated in a “Minute-To-Win-It” game. Some of the games played included emptying out two Tic-Tac boxes while only using their head, shoving as many marshmallows as possible into their mouths, and blowing cups off a table, only using an inflated balloon. Trust us when we say this will all make sense when you see the pictures! Colby and Emma came out as the winners of this hilarious event. Special shout out to Mr. Campbell, as he filled in for Maya (who was off to the district tournament for volleyball!).
