Dress-up days have always been an interesting way to spice up Homecoming week and this year’s Student Council incorporated a few new twists to the schedule.
Monday was Duct Tape Day, and Tuesday was Nerd Day — with royalty pictures being taken, along with a royalty visit to the PioneerCare Center. Wednesday’s theme is Western Day, and Thursday is Pink Day for Breast Cancer Awareness.
And of course, Friday is Spirit Day — with lots of Maroon and Gold being worn. It’s also the busiest day of Homecoming week. The junior and seniors will battle it out in Iron Man volleyball and the annual Powder Puff Football game. The parade from Kennedy Secondary School through downtown will begin at 2 p.m.
The game vs. Zimmerman starts at 7 p.m. with the Homecoming dance to follow.
‘Alumni Pep Band’
The Fergus Falls High School Band Department and the Fergus Falls 544 Education Foundation are teaming up to provide an exciting opportunity for alumni. During the
Fergus Falls High School Homecoming game on Friday, October 7, alumni will be able to relive some high school memories by performing with the Pep Band.
Music for the night’s performance will be handed out starting at 4 pm in the High School Band Room at Kennedy Secondary School.
Alumni participating in the “Alumni Pep Band” should enter the doors on the east side of the Kennedy Secondary School by the tennis courts. Signs will be posted throughout the building directing the way to the band room.
For the evening’s schedule and a list of possible music choices, please go to the Foundation’s Web site: www.544foundation.org.
If you have any questions about this event, please e-mail Mindy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Band directors, Jim Iverson and Scott Kummrow, also would like to know how many alumni will be participating, so if you’re interested, please email Scott at
email@example.com. Whether you still play on a regular basis or you haven’t even opened your instrument case since graduation, please consider participating in what will be an enjoyable evening.
