Elgin Academy Hilltopper Homecoming

Homecoming is one of the long-standing traditions at Elgin Academy that brings students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni together to celebrate our school and our community. Thank you to the EAPA Executive Board for planning great virtual Homecoming events this year!

Here are some highlights from our Virtual Homecoming 2020 - Hilltoppers Together!

 


 

Virtual Dunk Tank

Thank you for supporting Elgin Academy’s student clubs and activities by participating in our Virtual Dunk tank. Together we more than doubled our goal and raised over $2,000 for our Hilltoppers!

We hope you enjoy this video of Foxman dumping Gatorade on Coach Pinson and Coach Williams, hitting Mr. Sept in the face with a pie, dying Mrs. Kut's hair pink, and soaking Mr. Hanford with water balloons! We thank all of them for being such good sports!

 


 

Homecoming Parade

On Friday, September 25th, many Elgin Academy families participated in the Homecoming Parade which took place during morning drop-off. Parents and students decorated their cars and were welcomed on campus by Foxman who was rocking some serious dance moves. Enjoy!

Coach Rick
Somebody clearly forgot to tell Coach Williams that it was a No-Talent Talent Show because not only did he write his own lyrics, but he plays the piano to Radiohead's Creep. It was such a hit it left at least one audience member in tears! View Video on YouTube
 
The Upper School Improv & No-Talent Talent Show is just one of the many Virtual Homecoming activities held this past weekend as part of Elgin Academy's week of Homecoming festivities.
