I think [the 80’s theme] will make it easier for students to dress up for,” Feuerborn said. “I think there will be more participation, and it should be pretty fun to decorate for.”

During their meeting on Thursday, Jan. 8, StuCo members finished planning final details for Winter Homecoming, which will be on Friday, Jan. 16. The theme for the dance and spirit week, running Monday, Jan. 12 through Friday, Jan. 16, is ‘80s. Participation in the spirit days listed below will be counted for class cup points.

Monday: “Jump” — Workout/exercise wear

Tuesday: “Love is a Battlefield” — Camouflage

Wednesday: “True Colors” — Class colors

Thursday: “Eye of the Tiger” — Animal print and/or safari wear

Friday: All ‘80s All Day – ‘80s fashion

Junior representative Megan Feuerborn enjoyed choosing the theme and spirit days for this year’s dance.

“I think [the theme] will make it easier for students to dress up for,” Feuerborn said. “I think there will be more participation, and it should be pretty fun to decorate for.”

Along with being the overall theme for spirit week, ‘80s will also be the theme for the varsity boys basketball game against Tonganoxie High School on Friday, Jan. 16 and the dance itself. Student body president Savannah Rudicel believes this change will bring more success to the dance than in the past.

“We’re trying something new with a more involved theme,” Rudicel said. “People may be able to have fun with the ‘80s theme versus wearing whatever they want to the dance.”

Winter Homecoming will immediately follow the basketball game against Tonganoxie and run until 11 p.m. The game will start at 7:15 p.m. Students planning to go to the dance must arrive by 30 minutes after the conclusion of the game and will not be readmitted if they choose to leave at any time. The dance is free and snacks will be provided.

Guests from other schools are also being allowed into the dance this year. Students wishing to bring outside guests will need to fill out a form in the office, due Wednesday, Jan. 14.

The senior class nominated candidates for the King and Queen of Winter Sports. The King and Queen will be crowned during halftime game against Tonganoxie.

Queen of Winter Sports candidates:

Senior Isabelle Acree

Senior Halie Breninger

Senior Taylor Felshaw

Senior Whitney Hazlett

Senior Mikaela McCabe

Senior Lacie Myers

King of Winter Sports candidates:

Senior Cody Deas

Senior Tyler Garrison

Senior Conner Kaifes

Senior Luke Rachwal

Senior Logan Marx

Senior Sebastian Uriarte

Feuerborn is hoping for a positive turnout at the dance and believes students should attend.

“Students should come to Winter Homecoming because it’s something fun for them to do, but it’s also not as formal as Homecoming,” Feuerborn said. “It’s a fun place for students to hang out on a Friday night.”
