What a great Homecoming Week! Spirit Days, Powder Puff Game, Pep Assembly, Homecoming Game, Homecoming Dance — the week of Sept. 27 to Oct. 2 had it all!
The overall theme was "Fairytale," reflected in hallway decorations throughout the school. Each day had a separate theme as well. Students and staff were encouraged to get into the spirit of things with attire fitting the following themes:
- Monday, Sept. 27: Camo Day
- Tuesday, Sept. 28: Dress Like a Tourist Day
- Wednesday, Sept 29: Holiday Day
- Thursday, Sept. 30: Jersey Day
- Friday, Oct. 1: Black & Gold Day
The week included a Powder Puff flag football doubleheader on Sept. 29 featuring freshmen vs. sophomores and juniors vs. seniors. An outdoor pep assembly set the stage Oct. 1 for the evening's Homecoming Game vs. Ridgewood, and the week concluded Oct. 2 with nearly 700 students attending the Homecoming Dance at EPHS Stadium.
