With the school year in full swing, Homecoming is the first major event for the entire student body. This year’s theme is a spin-off  from the Wizard of Oz, “There’s No Place Like Homecoming”.

Current seniors Sam Klineman, Nathan Kolbus, Sarah Mastrian, Lydia Dessauer, and Alyssa Behringer sing along to the music at last year’s homecoming dance.

Homecoming week starts on Saturday, Sept. 24 with hallway decorating from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Each grade gets a specific area to decorate with a theme from The Wizard of Oz; Freshmen: Kansas, Sophomores: Forest, Juniors: Munchkin’ Land, and Seniors: Emerald City. This is a fun way to get involved and get excited for the week’s activities.

During the week, there are different dress up theme:  

Monday: Lions, Tigers and Bears (Animals)

Tuesday: Twister Tuesday (Wacky)

Wednesday: Which Witch is Which? (Twin Day)

Thursday: Twister Thursday (black and white shirts/uniform shorts)

Friday: Kansas Farmer Friday (farmer)

Not only are their dress up days throughout the week, but on Tuesday evening at 8 p.m, the school will project the movie out on the stadium field. The best comes later in the week, with the homecoming game against Winton Woods at UIndy at 7 p.m. and the dance on Saturday from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.  

Cheerleaders hold up a breakable banner for the varsity football team to run through prior to kick off.

Tickets go on sale on the Sept. 25 and will be sold until the Sept. 29 at $10 a piece. If students would like to bring someone from another school to the dance, make sure to complete an “outside student form”. If students need to get a copy of the form or have any questions, contact vice principal of student life Mr. Ben Reilly. Senior Bridget Nash said, “Homecoming is one of those high school moments that you need to experience!”
