Homecoming 2017

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Homecoming 2017 is just around the corner and the Student Advisory Council (SAC) at Spirit Lake is excited to announce that this year's homecoming begins Monday, Sept. 18, and continues until the 22nd. SAC has been working on the theme and the events for homecoming prior to school beginning.

This year’s theme is “Spirit Lake’s Got Game,” which all are board games. The high school dress up days this year are Monday “The Game of Life,” which is dressing as what each student intends to be in “life.” Tuesday is “Guess Who,” which is dressing up like any famous person. Wednesday is “Cranium vs. EA.” Students dress as an athlete or mathlete. Thursday is “Jumanji” or dressing up as any animal, and finally Friday is traditionally “Spirit Day.” Besides the dress up days, there are many other festivities that are planned for this year.

On Monday night, there is a Powder Puff football tournament at 8 p.m. Throughout the week, students participate in spirit games, choreograph class dances and create festive hallway decorations. The time of these events is to be determined at a closer date.

Tuesday night there will be both an away cross country meet at Sheldon and an away volleyball game at Western Christian. As it is homecoming week, both teams would love to see your support at these events!  Wednesday is coronation at 8 p.m. in the Sami Center. The Grand Marshall is Sharon Shrunk, a recently retired educator at Spirit Lake High School; the scepter bearer is Keegan Hackbarth and flower girl is Clara Petty. Thursday night there is a home volleyball game and following the game is powder puff volleyball coached by the girls.

Friday is game day and a day packed full of fun! Friday begins with pep assemblies involving the sports teams at the elementary and middle school. During the afternoon, the high school has spirit games; however, the best part of the day begins at 2:30 p.m. with the parade. If anyone is interested in participating in the parade, please feel free to contact the school. Later that night at 5 p.m., tailgating starts with the Booster Club, right before kick off at 7 p.m. against Algona. Immediately following the game, there is a high school dance until midnight. This wraps up the homecoming week and hope to see everyone as excited as the student body is for homecoming!
