Warren County High School students will start encouraging their team to victory by participating in Homecoming Spirit Week activities beginning Monday.
“The students really enjoy participating in homecoming week,” said student sponsor Pam Youngblood. “They look forward to it every year, and every year they start asking what the days will be. They really enjoy dressing up, even the boys.”
Homecoming Spirit Week will be:
Monday: Nerd Day
Students are encouraged to nerd it up with slick hair parted in the middle, thick-rimmed glasses, pocket protectors, bowties, pants pulled up over their stomachs, and shirts tucked in.
Tuesday: Alphabet Day
Whatever your first name begins with, that’s what you have to choose from. As explained by Youngblood, her first name begins with “P” so she could dress up like a pumpkin or use pinwheels to create an outfit.
Wednesday: Disney or Camo Day
Students who don’t want to dress up like their favorite Disney characters, such as Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Monsters Inc., Toy Story, a Disney princess or a Disney villain, can dress in camouflage.
Thursday: Decade Day
Students can select their favorite decade and dress to match. Popular decades are 1950s poodle skirts, ponytails, rolled-up sleeves and slick hair, as well as the 1980s with leg warmers, teased hair, rat tails and parachute pants.
Friday: School Pride Day
Dress in red, white and blue or true Pioneer attire with long pioneer skirt, apron and bonnet and guys with straw hats, suspenders and boots.
Spirit Week leads up to Friday’s Homecoming Parade. The parade begins at 12:45 p.m. It starts at Tire Mart and runs the length of Main Street. Classes will be showing off their themed floats. A pep rally will be held at the Farmers Market immediately following.
That night, Warren County High School’s Pioneers will take on the Stone Memorial High School Panthers. During halftime, the Homecoming King and Queen will be crowned. In the running are seniors Jarah Anderson and Griffin Jones, Allie Golden and Brandon Gutierrez, and Lakin Nunley and Logan Mize.
