What Gunn Events are Planned and Why Should You Care?【什么是GUNN的规划中的活动以及为什么值得您的关注?】

Homecoming is a long-standing tradition at many American high schools and colleges. It is a celebration of the school community and is a chance for current students to join with returning alumni and the rest of the school community to develop “school spirit” and camaraderie.【返校节活动是在美国高中和大学里面深具历史的一项传统活动。这项活动是学校这个社区大家庭里面的一项庆典活动,提供给目前在校的学生和回到母校来的毕业同学们的一个交流机会,并且也能够使得整个学校这样的社区大家庭里面发展出一种“母校精神”和有志一同的同志感情的活动。】

Each year, Gunn High School plans an entire week of events to bring students together to get to know each other, have fun, and develop a sense of belonging to the Gunn community. Homecoming week is organized primarily by the Gunn Student Activities Center (Lisa Hall, Director) with help from the student leaders of each class (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior Student Councils). Staff and teachers try to reduce the workload during that time, and many take part in the games and events themselves.【每一年,GUNN高中就会规划出利用一整个礼拜的时间来组织安排一些活动,让学生们聚到一起,认识彼此,并且从中获得乐趣和发展组对GUNN这个大家庭的一种归属感。返校日活动周主要是由GUNN的学生活动中心(Lisa Hall是该组织的总监)来组织的,并且各个年级的学生领袖(高一新生,高二,高三及毕业班的学生议会组织)们也会提供协助。教职员工会在那段时间里设法减轻学生们的课业量上的负担,而且他们有些人还会自己参与很多活动周里的游戏和活动。】

This year, Homecoming week is the week of October 16 and ends with the dance on Saturday October 21. The theme this year is “Around the Town”; a full list of events follows, but highlights include:【今年,返校日活动周是在10月16日那个礼拜开始展开,到10月21日星期六的舞会后结束。今年的主题是“在我们的乡镇四周”;一份完整的活动清单会公布出来,但活动的亮点包括有:】

  • Competitions between the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior classes held daily at brunch and lunch;【在高一新生,高二学生,高三学生以及毕业班学生们之间的比赛,这些比赛是在每天的早午餐时间和中午午餐时间举行】

  • Students and staff will dress up in different costumes every day;【每天都有学生和教职员工们穿着不同的服饰来展现出活力】

Homecoming events are communicated broadly and frequently to all the students, in the hopes that each and every student will find an activity that appeals to them. Even if a student does something easy and uncomplicated – cheer their classmates during the competitive games, dress in accordance with their class theme, attend the Night Rally (a favorite, this is when the Air Band contest happens!), watch the football game, or just affix one or two tissue-paper balls to the class float – students are almost assuredly going to experience “school spirit” and feel a part of the community – which is the goal!【返校节活动的信息会广泛而且经常地宣传给到所有的学生知道,这样做是希望每一位学生会觉得其中有一项活动会让他们感到欣喜。即便一位学生做意一件简单不复杂的事情 - 比方说:为他们的同学在竞技比赛中加油,穿上一件合乎他们年级主题的衣服,参加团结激励夜(这是一项学生们很喜欢的活动,而且到时候会有乐团表演比赛上场),看美式足球比赛,或是只是将一卷或是两卷的卷筒纸做的纸球粘到属于他们的年级的游行花车上- 学生们几乎可以保证地将会从中体会到一种“母校精神”,并且感觉到自己是学校这个大家庭的一份子 - 这就是我们这个返校节活动的目标!】

According to Ms. Hall, the “top 5” events she suggests students take part in:【根据Hall女士的说法,以下有“排名最高的五样”活动是她会建议学生们参加的:】

  • “Stuff a Bench” game【“Stuff a Bench”游戏】

  • Help build/stuff their class float (at the track on Wednesday from 3:00pm – 6:00pm and Thursday from 3:30pm to 7:00pm)【帮忙组建或是装饰他们年级的游行花车(星期三的下午三点到6点,以及星期四的下午三点半到晚上7点,在田径场的径赛场地)】

  • Attend the Night Rally (Thursday starting at 8:00pm)【参加团结激励夜(星期四晚上8点开始)】

  • Encourage your student to attend any all activities, even if “ironically”. They will be glad they did!【鼓励您的学生参加所有或任何的活动,即便看起来有些“矛盾”。学生们会对他们的参与事后感到开心的!】
