When you were younger did you dream about what high school would be like? A High School Musical meets perfect date utopia? Somewhere along those lines is Homecoming. A dance in which you could only dream of. By definition, Homecoming means; /hōmˌkəmiNG/ (noun) 1. an instance of returning home. Now, a more precise definition may be; a weekend in which high school alumni come to see a home football game, and proceed to a formal dance afterwards.
This year, the game takes place on Friday, October 12 and the dance on Saturday, October 13. Be sure sure to dress up! Tickets are available in the ASB office. One ticket is $15. And if you don't have a date, don’t sweat it! Go with some friends!
Homecoming is not only football and a dance; the whole entire week is filled with fun activities. For example, Spirit Week takes place. Spirit Week is a week dedicated to showing your school spirit by dressing up for the corresponding theme. The following is a description of each day.
- Monday, Oct. 8: Dress in your class colors. Freshman wear purple, Sophomore wear yellow, Juniors wear green, and Seniors wear red.
- Tuesday, Oct. 9: Twin day! Totally Twin with your friends on Tuesday!
- Wednesday, Oct. 10: Meme/ Vine day. Dress up as your favorite Meme or Vine! Meme/ Vine day ahead? Uh...Yeah I sure hope it is.
Along with these entertaining Spirit Days, Buff Puff and Powder Puff both take place. A ticket is $5 without an ASB card for both games. Buff Puff is an event in which guys, typically football players, play a game of volleyball in the Wa-Hi big gym. This takes place on Monday, October 8. On the other hand, Powder Puff is vise versa, the girls play football. This takes place on Wednesday, October 10 at the Borleske Stadiums next to the Memorial Pool.
Be sure to participate in these wonderful events and show your school spirit!
