It's that time of year …


At Buckley, we celebrate Homecoming during the winter — usually in February — as we do not have a football team. Well, we do, but we share that team with Mesick, the host team. The Bulldogs have Homecoming and a Homecoming Game, but it's not the same as a Buckley Homecoming. 

The "B" above is from the "old gym," which is now our elementary physical education lab. We don't even play junior high games in that gym anymore, as we don't have a proper place for the student–athletes to change or even shower after the game. 

While many schools are celebrating "winterfest" or some type of winter celebration, we hold our fall festival week in the … fall, when other schools are celebrating … Homecoming! So, all the alumni get to come to tomorrow night's basketball game against Suttons Bay. 

It's different with Homecoming in the winter and no Friday Night Lights in the fall. 

Go Bears!
