James Lick High school has many traditions which help bring students, teachers, staff and everyone together. For years, James Lick was well known for homecoming. Other James Lick traditions are skits in the quad and collecting money for fundraisers. Every year, James Lick students go on a trip to Death Valley. James Lick also hosts an annual night rally known as Fantastics each year. It pits the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes against each other. This culminates the year long race for "Spirit Points".
Another tradition is the James Lick Carnival, usually held in late April. It is set up in the James Lick parking lot. This event consists of various rides, cotton candy and other events associated with a carnival. All proceeds go to fund the James Lick Athletic Department
James Lick alumni take part in what is known as the Alumni Race every year. It usually takes place in mid-September of every new school year. It pits former students against current students on the cross country team. It is run on the 3-mile North Rim trail of Alum Rock Park.
Every year, the James Lick and Andrew Hill varsity football teams face off in the bell game. The last time James Lick held the bell was in 2006. The Comets have won 2 games and have lost 28 games over a three-year span, including a win-less season in 2007. However, the school does field a good soccer team, which won the Lovato Cup last year.

Famous quotes containing the word traditions:
“But generally speaking philistinism presupposes a certain advanced state of civilization where throughout the ages certain traditions have accumulated in a heap and have started to stink.”
—Vladimir Nabokov (18991977)
“... the more we recruit from immigrants who bring no personal traditions with them, the more America is going to ignore the things of the spirit. No one whose consuming desire is either for food or for motor-cars is going to care about culture, or even know what it is.”
—Katharine Fullerton Gerould (18791944)
“And all the great traditions of the Past
They saw reflected in the coming time.
And thus forever with reverted look
The mystic volume of the world they read,
Spelling it backward, like a Hebrew book,
Till life became a Legend of the Dead.”
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (18091882)
