Homecoming week offers many events for students


Several changes have been made to the week of Homecoming due to COVID-19 and the forced rescheduling of the football game. But, there are still plenty of things to do and events to participate in.

One such way to participate is Spirit Week.

For Monochromatic Monday on Oct. 5, students are encouraged to find an outfit consisting of only one hue, though shades and tints are welcome.

Throwback Tuesday on Oct. 6 invites students to base their costume around a decade of their choice.

Oct. 7, a Wednesday, aims to attract all the wannabe cowboys. Students should wear their best Western outfit, complete with hats and boots. Also, during PRIDE time, students will watch the candidate videos and voting for Homecoming king and queen will open.

Thursday, Oct. 8 is when students can show off their class shirts with Class Color Day. If students do not have class shirts, they can still participate by wearing their class color. Seniors wear black, juniors wear white, sophomores wear gray and freshmen are sporting gold.

Friday, Oct. 9 is known as “Guys in Ties, Girls in Pearls,” which means that students should dress up in formal wear to end the week.

Friday also has an early dismissal at 1 p.m. and follows Schedule 4. Later that day, at 6:30 p.m. at Fort Hays State University’s Lewis Field, the candidate and honoree recognition will take place, and the football game against the Dodge City Demons will take place immediately after. Homecoming king and queen will be announced at halftime of the football game.
