A bonfire was set up for Homecoming Week after the powderpuff game. Any grade was able to come and enjoy. It was set up by Student Council on Monday, Sept. 30, 2019. It was the start of a great Homecoming Week.
Student Council member, junior Cagnie Miller said that the bonfire showed school pride. Not a lot of schools do the bonfire, so it has started to represent the community at this school.
“You definitely should go, it’s late at night on a Monday, but it’s worth it. It’s a fun experience to do for the school,” Miller said.
Another important part of the bonfire was that it is held in the fall. It’s a perfect tradition to do in the fall since it’s not too cold and it’s a time to celebrate after the powderpuff game.
“You have to go to get the experience, it’s a super fun thing to watch and experience,” she said.
Although the bonfire is extremely fun, it takes a lot of planning to make it right. It can take a lot of work from getting the wood pallets to getting the fire permit.
“Make sure you do the fire permit because if you don’t the school could get fined and they also could not be able to do it,” she said.
In the future, she hopes the bonfire will happen every year and will be a tradition.
“It’s a tradition, it’s something Capital is kind of known for. A lot of other schools don’t have a bonfire on school grounds,” she said.
