This change is due to the increasingly high demand and therefore increasingly limited space in our two south campus gyms and commons area. Our goal is to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and safe homecoming experience, including alumni and their families, families of those students who are voted into the homecoming court, and current BCS families with kids of all ages. This year many visitors to homecoming were not able to get in, and we know many more stayed away because of the crowding and limited space offered that night. With enrollment increasing again next year, we felt it was the right decision at the right time.
The new venue will provide ample space for all attendees, and we are confident that the change in location will not impact the quality of the event. As a matter of fact, we believe that moving outdoors can increase the quality of the student, parent, and alumni experience in many ways and will open up new opportunities for new traditions. We will be working with student council this spring to assure the experience of current BCS students is considered as we plan an outdoor homecoming.
So mark your calendars BCS community! Homecoming 2023-24 will take place on Saturday, September 16th, 2023 in conjunction with a boys' soccer game that begins at 6:30pm. We will send follow-up information as the event approaches about the activities associated with that night.
