Homecoming is a huge event at our school. Between the parade, dance, and pep rally the students have a week loaded with school spirit. This year’s homecoming parade will be centered on the theme of entertainment, which the Student Council is eager to tackle.
Cheyenne Casto, Student Council member said, “We are all very eager to start making progress on this year’s event.”
Student Council is supporting each grade in an effort to bring spirit back by having them choose class flags, colors, flowers, and animals. Representatives for homecoming court were voted on but not released.
Our school isn’t the only group excited for the continuation of this beloved tradition. The community as a whole also highly enjoys the festivities that are involved, such as the parade. The alumni band is one example of how the community gets former students involved.
With the theme of entertainment, the floats will probably be open to more interpretation of what students really enjoy. At press time the spirit day costumes were not available. One club in particular, the Hogwarts Club, is going to have an easier time with this theme because the club is an entertainment themed organization. This year they are doing Quidditch
Diana Gainer, club adviser says, “This year the club is very excited to take on the challenge of making the float an organized success.”
So come down on down and support Ripley High’s annual celebration!
