Feehan student council

This year Bishop Feehan High School’s homecoming week will feature new and old activities, TAG days and sports games, ending with the infamous dance on the tennis courts. With new changes, new themes and activities happening everyday, the following is a layout of the week to help prepare for this exciting week. 


Monday – September 25th 

Monday starts off strong with a sports related free TAG day and activity that will get any sports lover excited to start the week. A full dress down TAG day with a sports jersey and other sports related clothing is recommended and a fun activity related to this garb will happen at lunch: a round of sports trivia. Prepare for Monday with your best jersey, hoodie or even socks sporting any or all of your favorite sports teams. 


Tuesday – September 26th

Tuesday carries on more of Feehan’s homecoming week traditions with mass starting at 10 and ending right before lunch, where another surprise is waiting. Karaoke during lunch will involve a select few volunteers in each grade who will pick a song that they can sing their lungs out to. So make sure you are in full uniform and practice your singing skills in preparation for Tuesday.


Wednesday- September 27th 

Wednesday this week will be a lot more vibrant than usual with a free TAG day and a colorful theme of your favorite holiday. You can come in with all the ghost apparel you have or have your head warmed by a Santa hat, the choice is up to you! Yet again, prepare for another lunch grade vs grade game, this time one of hide and seek. 


Thursday – September 28th 

Thursday has two of Feehan’s favorite traditions stacked together as the weekend nears: the college bowl and hall decorating. In honor of the grades going head to head in a battle of trivia there will be a modified TAG day, college sweatshirts can be worn in place of your regular Feehan sweater. Like the rest of the week, lunch will be colored with another class game to find the college sweatshirt. At 1 students will make their way to the auditorium and watch as five of their peers will battle in a game of trivia. Featuring questions from all the disciplines taught at Feehan, freshmen vs sophomores and juniors vs seniors will battle and whichever grade passes the first two rounds will try to defeat the undefeated: the teachers. In the evening students will enjoy decorating their respective halls with their peers according to the theme of Disney Channel movies. Seniors will be recreating East High’s hallway as their movie is the classic High School Musical, surfs up for the Juniors who can recreate a beach haven based on their movie Teen Beach Movie, hopefully the Sophomores won’t be at odds like the zombies and humans where in their movie Zombies, and finally the Freshmen get to rock out as they put up musical decorations in honor of their movie Camp Rock. 


Friday – September 29th 

The day is almost here and Friday will feature the best that Feehan has to offer when it comes to class spirit. Following the themes previously mentioned, each grade will sport their class color and shirts that will give pride and distinction to the classes of ‘24, ‘25, ‘26 and the newly minted ‘27. During the day, prepare to feel the spirit as each class goes head to head for the last lunch time game of musical chairs. The school day will close with Feehan’s favorite tradition: class skits. Each class will create a skit according to their movie theme where students in each grade will act out snipits choreographed by student council. The grade with the best skit will win a free TAG day to be used later in the school year. After the school day ends the fun just begins. Unified again under the Shamrocks, all of Feehan’s community is invited to Friday evening and Saturday morning games. Starting with volleyball Freshman, JV and Varsity will go head to head against Walpole High School in the ‘Rock and McIntyre gyms from 4 to 5:30. At 6 the field hockey team will take to the turf and play against Needham High School at McGrath stadium. 


Saturday- September 30th

The final day has come and it is packed full of Feehan spirit. Starting at 9, the men’s Freshmen soccer team will head up against Walpole High School on Walsh Field. At 11 the JV men’s soccer team will go against Walpole on Walsh Field while the Varsity team will take on McGrath and once again take on Walpole High. At 1 the main attraction will begin: the Varsity football game. After the soccer team leaves the field Feehan football will take the lead against Archbishop Williams. Dressed up in all pink, Alumni, parents and students alike will enjoy this final sports wrap up, hopefully ending with a win. 

If you are not into sports but still want to come out and support Feehan, there will be a myriad of activities to do around McGrath. Come play yard games, visit the spirit station, enjoy pumpkin decorating and so much more for all of the family to feel entertained. If anyone in your party gets hungry, lots of food trucks will be available with foods including burritos, pizza doughnuts, ice cream, everything that will keep you satisfied throughout the game.  

Finally, for most this is the final event we all have been waiting for: the tennis court dance. In past years the homecoming dances have been moved outside for COVID safety but it has quickly become a favorite of the students and is now an ingrained part of the homecoming dance. As of right now, skies look to be clear for most of Saturday after an afternoon sprinkle, perfect for the open air dance that will end the week. Other than the weather there are a couple of things to expect. The arrival window starts at 7 and ends at 7:30, departure starts at 9:30 and the dance ends at 10. Be ready either with your school ID or a photo of it so check in can begin. There will be water and tables to put stuff down or to just catch your breath. Sign in to the courts is on two sides: a drop off near Doran and near the staff and holcott lots for student drivers. When it comes to dress, follow the guidelines posted in each grade’s classroom, this includes rubber soled shoes to protect the tennis courts. Another expectation is that there are to be no outside guests at this dance. If all of the rules are followed expect a night of great music, dancing and a fun time bonding with friends and classmates, a great way to wrap up a fun filled week.
