I am in charge of this year's homecoming. I go to Sam Houston High School and we are the Texans. Our theme this year is: "Time Warped Texans, a Retro Homecoming". Basically it's about the past music decades (50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's). It would be great if you can send some ideas for a float, and spirit week days. Thanks!

If you are looking for things that were popular way back then ---I was in high school in the '50's. That was about when Rock n Roll got started. The biggest hit of that time was Rock Around the Clock (Bill Haley and the Comets).
You can find the music of each decade online. I'm sorry but I can't remember the name of the website now. But a search will turn it up, I'm sure.
I don't know why, but we always wore cardigan sweaters backwards (buttoned up). And a small square scarf tied around our neck. We had "Sock Hops" in the gym (a dance held in the gym and wearing socks, no shoes allowed).
Outside of gym, girls wore loafers, white bucks and knee socks. I don't remember what the boys wore. (09/05/2008)
Our school always has the basics, like PJ day, Nerd/Geek day, Oldies Day (50,60,70,80), some dressed like old people, crossover day (guys and girls or animals), superhero/superstar day, and blue and white day (or school colors).
In West Texas, we always have days like camo day for deer hunting, or farmer day. But we also have pajama day, crazy day, oldies day, twin day, star day (where you dress up like a famous person), and spirit day with our school colors. (09/09/2008)
Stoplight day: if you're single wear green, if you're "talking" with someone or "it's complicated", wear yellow, and if you're dating someone wear red. This one is easy because people can wear just t-shirts or go all out with the colors. One person wore all the colors!
Nerd day: taping of glasses, suspenders, high pants, overalls, high socks, pocket protectors, etc. So many people got into this one!
Harry Potter Day: wizards and witches everywhere! Broomsticks and griffyndor colors everywhere!
Cowboy day: hats, boots, plaid shirts, bandannas
Powderpuff football: it really brings the classes together. girls playing football - teachers and football players as their coaches. This can also be used as a spirit day when each class wears their powderpuff t-shirts.
Bonfire: pep rally at the bonfire! With music, cheers, football team, dance team. Our school did not approve us having any form of food-with-the-fire at the bonfire, though (09/11/2008)
At my school we do a day that is about wearing mismatched clothes. It's my favorite and so so easy. We also do a forgery day, where you dress like the opponents team. Good luck! (09/16/2008)
I've also heard of fake an injury day. Just another idea that's different from the others. (09/21/2008)
At my school, today was '80's workout day. (09/22/2008)
At our school in c-town Idaho we have:
We also have a bonfire lip sing, a parade, and fun stuff. (09/23/2008)
At my school we do:
At our school we had:
At our school, this week is homecoming week. We have:
Our homecoming spirit days this year were:
Another idea that wasn't passed by administration was Where's Waldo Day, which everyone would have loved! =) (12/02/2008)
