Hey Spartans! It’s almost that time of year again: Homecoming Week! This year Home- coming will be during the week of October 9th-14th, with the dance on Saturday, October 14th in the main gym. The Senior Class Officers Alex Wowk, Roark Lundahl, Erin Fennessy, and Ian Virtue have planned the theme based on Sia’s famous song “The Greatest!” I guess we’ll have to wait and find out how they portray one of her greatest hits. They have also come up with some pretty fantastic dress up days during that week:
MONDAY: **College Apparel
TUESDAY: Monochromatic →
Freshmen – Red
Sophomores – Blue
Juniors – Yellow
Seniors – Gray
Staff – Black
WEDNESDAY: Retro → 60s, 70s, 80s
FRIDAY: Spartan Spirit
**our paper has printed “Hawaiian,” due to circumstances this dress up was changed to “College Apparel.”
Be sure to participate every day to show your school spirit! Like every year, the windows by the cafeteria will be painted and the banners will be decorated by the officers of each class. We can expect some other spectacular events as well! On October 11th, The Spartan Light of Life Walk will take place at Mansfield Stadium. This walk is sponsored by the Youth Service and only costs $5 to participate. Also, this year we will be lucky to witness the lovely staff of JMM go head to head against the students in the Student vs. Staff Kickball game, which will take place right after The Light of Life Walk.
In addition, the Pep Rally will take place on Friday, October 13th in the main gym during the last hour of school. Although, it is optional to go, we highly recommend you attend. During the Pep Rally, students from all four classes will be competing against each other in various activities such as tug of war and exciting relays. Following the Pep Rally, the big Homecoming football game against Beloit will take place in the evening at Mansfield Stadium. Tickets are only $3. To finish off this glorious week, we have the Homecoming Dance on Saturday October 14th from 8:30-11:30pm. Tickets are only $10. Bring a wonderful date or go solo and have a blast with your friends! Either way, make sure to dance the night away. Have a wonderful homecoming week and make sure to show some school spirit!
