Starting on Monday 31st as Halloween, leaning towards Tuesday as Toga Day, brightening up Wednesday as Girls in Pearls and Guys in ties, breezing through Thursday as Class theme day where each class will dress for a different time period (Freshmen will be the Stone age, Sophomores will be the Wild Wild West, Juniors will be the Medieval Renaissance, leaving the Seniors to dress as the Future), leaving Friday with the class colors. Freshmen are purple, Sophomores are orange, Juniors are green, and Seniors are Blue.

Every class will go out to the School field for Homecoming RALLY, starting off with the National Anthem leading

to the class floats by those who participated in creating the floats, and leaving the end of the school day with announcing the Homecoming King and Queen, Prince and Princess, Duke and Duchess, and Lord and Lady, ending Spirit Week with Homecoming game against Skyline on Saturday. Here are some photos of the week:
