Homecoming for the 2017-2018 school year will be held the week of Oct. 8 through Oct. 13.

2017 HOMECOMING DRESS UP

This year’s homecoming theme is “Once Upon a Homecoming.” The theme was decided on last year on Twitter posted by Student Council.

Students are encouraged to dress up according to the following:

Tuesday – Tangled Tuesday (crazy hair or hat day)

Wednesday – Disney Day (dress up as your favorite disney character)

Thursday – Three Little Pigs (twin in a group of three)

Friday – Wear your homecoming shirts and mums

Hats will be allowed for dress up days as long as they are appropriate for school.

As a challenge to give back to the community during homecoming week, there will be a competition among the different grade levels to see who can collect the most canned goods. More information regarding the rules of the competition can be found here. Also, during 3B classes there will be a door decorating contest. The criteria for the door decorating contest can be found here. The winning class will win a 50 dollar gift card for treats to be celebrated during class time up to teacher discretion.
