Guide to Homecoming Week

Homecoming week is here again, which means it’s time to show our school spirit as we face off against Winnacunnet. Despite the lack of a dance, this year’s homecoming week promises lots of excitement.

As most probably know, there are daily dress-up themes for homecoming week. Go all out or keep it subtle, just stay within the dress code. Bust out your stars and stripes for ‘Merica Monday. On Tuesday, rock the fashion of your favorite decade, whether it’s 1990s or 1860s. Wear your costumes or Marvel shirts for superhero Wednesday. Have a gorgeous homecoming dress you’ll never get to wear again? No worries! You can wear it for classy day on Thursday. Wear all white on Friday to show your Blue Hawk pride at the football game.

During the week, advisories will be competing against each other to see who can bring in the most canned goods. The winning advisory will receive a prize from the Student Senate that has yet to be announced.

In place of the usual pep rally, students will be dismissed at 1:30 for a tailgate in the sophomore parking lot. This will feature face painting, lawn games on the turf, apple bobbing, and a poster making station (with a limit of ten posters per person). The final bell will ring at 2:30 as usual, and those going home can leave. If you plan to take a bus to the homecoming game, stick around, and food will be served at 3. There will be two buses to shuttle students to Winnacunnet, one leaving at 3:30, and one leaving at 4. You can sign up to take a bus during lunches. Remember that if you go to Winnacunnet on a bus, you have to come home on a bus. 

There will be plenty of opportunities to support the Hawks at Winnacunnet (though you will need to pay for admission to the games). First off are the girls varsity soccer and field hockey games, which both start at 3:30. Boy’s varsity soccer starts at 5:15. Varsity volleyball will be at 6. The football game begins at 7. Let’s fill the student section and make it a home game!
