With homecoming this week, the Saegertown student council and senior court have buckled down to make this a week of festive celebration. “We’re doing spirit week along with other things we’re trying to get done before the week comes,” said Ben Courson, student council treasurer. “We have four pages of checklists to do.”
Spirit week kicked off today with a display of flannel shirts and pink to celebrate the final day for Principal Doug Wilson.
On Tuesday, wear tie dye. Wednesday, wear the assigned colors by grade level. On Thursday, dress as a fan of your favorite TV show, and on Friday, dress head to toe in blue in gold. For more information, papers are posted around the school. Following Friday’s pep assembly, the football team will take on the Maplewood Tigers at 7 p.m at Cannon Memorial field.
The formal homecoming assembly will take place October 7 in the auditorium, starting at 10 a.m. “Students can vote for homecoming king and queen Thursday, October 8 during history classes,” said Jacob Perrett, student council president.
All the homecoming candidates are ecstatic to take part in this special week.. “I’m super excited to just have a fun time. I think we have a good group of students,” said McKenzie Ashbaugh. The king and queen will be announced before the game Friday night, and the dance will be Saturday from 7:30-10 p.m. in the gym. Cost is $3 per person and $5 for a couple.
