Homecoming

Senior Amelia Weston was crowned the 46th Homecoming Queen during half time of the varsity football game on September 29. The senior class nominated seven girls from the class to be on the Homecoming Court, and students in grades nine-12 voted for the queen. In addition to Amelia, the following seniors were elected to the court: Chandler Curtis, Hailey Ford, Meredith Johnson, Liza Lowder, Becka Noyes and Madison Reaves.

A variety of activities took place to celebrate Homecoming. Spirit Week found students dressing up to the following themes: athletic jersey, extreme blue and white, group costume, patriotic and salad dressing.

Students arrived to campus the morning of the 29th to find the entire high school building decorated by the varsity cheerleading squad to the theme of “Baron Cinema.” A variety of movies were represented with intricately painted banners and decorations that covered the floor, walls and ceiling. With the exterior of the building transformed into a theater entrance with a large marquee, popcorn boxes and movie tickets, the foyer an auditorium, and the office a concession stand, students of all ages enjoyed the festive atmosphere throughout the day.

The Student Council sponsored the 44th annual Homecoming Parade which traveled the four-mile route through the nearby neighborhood on the afternoon of the 29th.  Each class in grades six through twelve sponsored a float decorated to the following themes: 1980s, cook out, Hawaiian, Jurassic Park, outer space, and western. Every middle and high school student rode in the parade for which Mrs. Becky Haley, school secretary, served as the grand marshal.
