It’s that time of the year again! Homecoming is just around the corner, September 28th to be exact. However, there have been exciting changes to the schedule this year.

Homecoming is about alumni and former members of the school coming home to celebrate the school and how far it has come since they last stepped foot in the school. Normally, students would elect a group of girls to be on the Homecoming court. The girls would participate in a skit they created themselves and ride through town in a parade before the game. In the same week, students would vote again for the winner who would be crowned at the homecoming game.

But Homecoming is about the community coming home, right? With this is mind, Renaissance Club planned a fun week of activities for everyone to get involved in this year. On September 22nd, a semi-formal homecoming dance will be held at the school from 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. All high school students are welcome to attend to celebrate the girls elected for the court.

A spirit week will be held in honor of Homecoming. Each girl will choose a day and a theme, for example PJ Day. On Wednesday the 26th, each girl will prepare a Lip Sync Battle with a couple of their friends who support them. The community is able to attend this event from 5:00pm-7:00pm in the middle school gym. On Friday the 28th, a parade starting at Hillside Community Church will showcase the girls one last time. The parade will begin around 6:00pm.

To follow, the Homecoming game will be played at Memorial Field at 7:00 p.m. and the Homecoming Queen will be crowned at halftime.

Teachers, Mrs. Stinson and Ms. Clippard, have worked hard to make sure the queen earns her crown this year. Each candidate will receive points for turning in their information and all forms on time, creativity is lip syncs, having the most supporters at their events, and the final vote of all the students.

 

Co-advisor of Renaissance Club, Mrs. Stinson says, “We have had a lot ideas come through and a loot of events we tried to make happen. The club itself is going through multiple changes right now so we hope to include more ideas as time goes on. But we are excited about this year and we hope everyone will participate.”

 

On Monday the 10th, the 2018-2019 Homecoming Court was announced to the highschool students. Congratulations to Riley D’Angelo, Alivia Jacobs, Kaylee Kasper, Paige Wenner, and Makayla Pluebell! Individual stories on each of them are yet to come! Let the festivities begin!
