Road Trip to Homecoming


Homecoming brings a variety of activities and competitions throughout the week. King Zach Lutmer and Queen Afton Schlumbohm were crowned at coronation, along with Dana Dykhouse and Mitch Lupkes inducted into the athletic hall of fame. Homecoming Olympics with several competitions between classes will be on Friday afternoon beginning at 1:00 pm. We will end the afternoon festivities with a parade around the elementary school. The FFA will host the homecoming supper in the activity center from 5:30-7:00 on Friday, October 7. At halftime of the football game vs. Sheldon, the mass band will perform. The homecoming dance follows the game until midnight. We will also have dress up days throughout the week.
