Beaver Dam Homecoming

Beaver Dam Jr. Senior High School held their annual Homecoming Parade on Wednesday, Sept. 27. The bad news is, the event was poorly attended as just a few community members showed up to give their support. Many community members were absent because the parade was held in the middle of the day and unpublicized.

The poor turnout didn’t seem to rattle the Diamondbacks one bit.

Beaver Dam Varsity High School Football Team won their homecoming game against Round Mountain with a score of 34-28.


This would have been a great victory by itself but both the Junior and Varsity Girls’ Volleyball team beat Green Valley Christian in the Homecoming game on Sept. 29. The Junior Varsity team won with a score of 2 – 0 and the Varsity victory brought in a score of 3 – 2.

This week Beaver Dam High School is puffed and proud as they Celebrate Pride Week with five fun filled days. Activities that were scheduled for the week had students and staff gapping generations, dressing for salads and celebrating fans. Today will have them playing superhero/villain and tomorrow celebrating their pride.  Go Diamondbacks!

    Thank you, Teri, for taking note of the poor attendance for Beaver Dam’s homecoming parade in the daytime.

    When I worked for the Beaver Dam Schools, 2006 was really the start of Homecoming activities for Beaver Dam High School. The first parade and the following four were held in the evening. The community turnout on the streets was almost as much as the annual Christmas parade. The parade would then end at Beaver Dam Elementary to kick off the carnival activities, followed by the bonfire. I have many pictures throughout the years.

    When I was on the School Board a few years ago, I asked then-Superintendent Mark Coleman why the change was made to the daytime. His response was along the lines of, if it was held in the evening, there wouldn’t be much of a turnout because of lack of transportation for most of the students. I found that statement hard to believe, because Beaver Dam students, along with their parents and/or neighbors in Beaver Dam/Littlefield/Desert Springs/Scenic/Arvada, ALWAYS find a way to support our Schools.

    I hope in the future, LUSD Administration will take this into account and decide to move the homecoming parade to a decent time when BDHS alumni and community members can attend the parade, like before, and show the support our Schools need.
