Friday’s Homecoming pep rally kicked off with a parade down main street. The elementary kids walked down the street first chanting “Huskie Power,” followed by the Junior High band playing “On Wisconsin.” The couples of the Homecoming court were driven down main street in style in the back of a pickup. Many of the fall sports and activities were represented during the parade as well.

The Dance and Song competition took place in the theater following the parade. Each high school class participated in the competition. Points earned from these shows were combined with the trivia and physical competition points from earlier in the week as well as a poster entry from each class. Winners for this year’s Homecoming competition were the Senior Class!
