Lakeland Union High School students are celebrating Homecoming this week, Sept. 30-Oct. 5, and there’s a full schedule ahead of them. This year’s theme is “Go for the gold.”

“The student council decides on the activities for the entire week, so it’s actually all student-driven,” Kim Kargus, LUHS student council advisor, said.

But some of the classic events are among the students’ favorites.

“The powder puff game is always a big one for the girls, and then the boys’ volleyball match is always a big one for the boys,” Kargus said.

This year will be Kargus’s ninth year heading up Homecoming, and her favorite aspect of the week-long event is also a classic – the Friday night football game.

“My favorite time of the week is the football game on Friday night, just that feeling of excitement. Whether or not the team wins or loses isn’t the important part, it’s that everyone’s out there and there’s a celebratory feeling,” she said.


Homecoming schedule

Yesterday, Monday, was “Class Color Day”; freshmen, yellow; sophomores, green; juniors, blue; seniors, red; and staff, black. At lunch there was a ring toss contest, and after school the junior and senior girls competed in the powder puff football game at 7 p.m.

Today is “Olympic Events Day,” and will kick off with a pie-eating contest at lunch. After school there will be a boys volleyball tournament in the field house at 6:30 p.m.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, is “Greek Toga Day.” At lunch, students will test their hand-eye coordination and speed with a juggling contest. After school there will be a bon fire at Torpy Park at 7 p.m.

Thursday, Oct. 3, is “Parade of Nations Day,” with a foreign accent contest being held at lunch. After school is a home sports night with girls volleyball and boys soccer competing.

Friday, Oct. 4, “T-Bird Day,” marks the last day of the school week and the day before the Homecoming dance. At lunch there will be a teacher trivia contest, followed by a pep assembly in the afternoon. 

After school will be the Homecoming football game against Ashland. The halftime show will feature the pep band, dance team and court introductions.

The 2013 Homecoming dance is held Saturday night, Oct. 5, 8-11:30 p.m.
