Warriors will celebrate their 95th Annual Orange Letter Days (OLD) Homecoming week next week at WHS.
Events will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, with the Booster Club Ice Cream Social in the commons.
Dress-up days will take place all week, including “Businessmen vs. Slobs” on Monday, “Villains vs. Superheroes” on Tuesday, “Athletes vs. Mathletes” on Wednesday, “Denim vs. Leather” on Thursday and “Warrior Pride” school colors on Friday.
Monday will also feature the homecoming variety show featuring some of WHS’s most talented individuals, including senior Chloe Legel in her third and last homecoming performance.
“I’m super excited to perform,” Legel said.
She reminded students to have a lot of fun, but to remain polite in the audience.
Junior Nate Freese was also pumped for the variety show.
“I’m excited to go to the variety show because it always makes me laugh,” Freese said.
Following the variety show, the coronation of the 95th Homecoming King and Queen will take place.
Friday is the climax of this year’s homecoming featuring the pizza feed and homecoming carnival as well as encore presentations of the variety show in the afternoon and a pep rally to end the school day.
The football game vs. Rapid City Stevens will take place at 5 p.m. at Howard Wood Field and the Homecoming Dance at WHS from 8-11 p.m. to end the week Friday.
