Read your emails for information from class sponsors regarding meetings, tshirts and every other Homecoming detail.  Voting for the Homecoming court will be online beginning Friday and go through Monday at midnight. Check your email for information. 

Hallway Decorating Info - Each class may decorate their hallway Monday or Tuesday night with a sponsor. Staff will vote on hallways Wednesday. Hallway tear down will be Friday during IAP. 

Lip Sync and Rally - The lip sync contest with guest judges will be Friday at the start of 4B. There will be a dismissal all call for this after reporting in to classes. After the contest, students will go back to 4B. Each class will then be dismissed to the MPR where each student will choose a ticket for lunch, giving the options of: Backyard Burger's burger, chicken sandwich, or a hotdog, chips, a drink and ice cream from Prairieland Dairy will also accompany the meal. After all classes are through the lunch line which will be near the football field concession stand (beginning with seniors and going to freshmen), we will have our second part to the rally including a performance by the Marching Titan band, royalty introductions, a switch rally and class games, ultimately ending in the winner of overall Homecoming 2012.

Dance Info- Outside dates must be signed up in the office no later than noon Wednesday. Doors open for the dance at 9:00 pm. Doors will be open for students entrance 45 minutes after the end of the football game. The dance is scheduled to end at 11:30 pm. Should we have good behavior and actions, Mr. Ruhl will entertain the idea of keepimg the dance and dj going until midnight. We will use the north entrance, the doors near Ms. Schroeder's classroom. All other entrances will be blocked off. Cost to get into the dance is $5. The dance is casual. Students, you may wear school appropriate clothing to the game. The Homecoming dance this year no longer necessitates semi formal attire. A concession stand will be open, selling and serving pizza, sodas, water and other concession stand items. Class photos will be taken should you want one between 10:30 and 11:00. The dance is not invited to this year's Homecoming dance. Last year we had 560 in attendance, so let's keep that number growing!
