While Homecoming week was fun and exciting for some, there were some students that were experiencing the week for the last time. It was a week of lasts, and it was time for the current seniors to go all out for their final week.

Senior Abby Anderson said, “It’s sad but [she] thinks it’ll be the best one yet.”

Many seniors have commented on the fact that this year is the last year for them to show the school what they have and to be the best class during pep rally week. With their last pep rally being October 5, many were antsy and striving to be the loudest, the most spirited, and the most excited class that was in the gymnasium.

Leading up to their pep rally, the week was filled with fun themes for the student body to dress up as and take part in participating with their friends and the rest of their classmates.

With Monday being pajama day, Tuesday was superhero day, Wednesday was meme day, Thursday was crazy hat and sock day, and Friday — to conclude it all — was blue and gold day to show school spirit.

Senior Jacob Ingoe says that “Of all the spirit day weeks his most favorite was the final day, blue and gold day. But they all kind of stunk this year. I miss the old ones that we all used to have.”

When asked what she was going to miss the most about the week, senior Lily Dressel said, “…dressing up like weirdos with my best friends.”

As the whole school was in the process of preparing for Homecoming, more and more students were beginning to think about the schools pep rally that concludes the spirit week.

Pep rallies usually tend to start with the school’s marching band performing their practiced and rehearsed show for the whole school. Upon entering the gym at the beginning of the pep rally, the marching bands drum line is in the center playing their songs and getting the students pumped up for what is about to come.

Senior Justine Sommer said, “It’s my favorite part of the pep rallies. Watching marching band and color guard perform.”

Which senior Jordan Day agrees with saying that it “Gets him excited,” and “sets the energy level for the rest of pep rally”.

This year seniors Noah Hulslander and TJ Grimsley were the Master of Ceremonies (MC).

Student council members juniors Savannah Sealover and Karlie Fromm introduced the Homecoming court.

Members of the court dressed in costume with the theme of movies or television shows. There was a Sully and a Boo, a Bob Ross and his canvas, and a Forrest Gump and his Jenny, and many more creative costumes. 

Senior Mackenzie Young said that she and senior Garrett Lowe dressed as Sully and Boo because “Monsters Inc. was always one of my favorite movies and I looked like Boo when I was younger,” She adds laughing, “So why not?”

Following court was a tug-of-war contest among the classes, which the seniors won, that then led into the pep rally’s main event.

As always, there was a scream off among the classes in which some members of the senior class claim to have won since their freshman year, like senior Lily Dressel who says “Definitely winning the scream off every year,” is one of her favorite parts of pep rally.

As tradition goes, seniors won, but some seniors were still a little disappointed. Soccer player Jacob Ingoe said, “I wish we had more time during the scream off; it wasn’t as long as freshmen year.”
