A Guide to Homecoming

I’m sure all of us can agree that Homecoming is without a doubt one of the most hectic times of the school year. Which is why I see that it’s only fit to lay out all the guidelines, rules, and regulations to make sure that everyone has the best Homecoming experience possible. The first step to making the most out of your experience, is making sure you nail your outfits for spirit week.


Monday, October 1,  marks the beginning of spirit week. Fitting in with our “Hollywood” theme, Monday was “Disguise day students may where their best outfits to help them hide from the paparazzi and screaming fans (no masks were allowed). For example a baseball cap, or some sunglasses would be perfect for going incognito. Day two of the week was Tourist day, which means it’s time to break out your dad shirts, fanny packs, and cargo shorts. Also to make your Wednesday more lively, Lakers dressed up in glitz and sequence for Flashy Not Trashyday. Also, keeping with tradition on Thursday, come decked out in camo and anything green you own to show your laker pride. As for seniors, it’s Toga Thursday. Then, finally on Friday make sure to wear your class color! Freshman are yellow, Sophomores are red, Juniors are blue, and Seniors are.


Along with the dress up days, there are extra festivities being held at the high school. Mr. WB,  a pageant for senior boys, was held on Monday, October 1 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. The next event that took place was the Powderpuff game between senior and junior girls with junior and senior boys as cheerleaders. There will be a pep assembly on Friday, October 5. The homecoming dance will take place on Saturday, October 8, from 7-10 pm.


Make sure you go all out during spirit week Lakers, there’s nothing like school spirit!
