Hello, Homecoming Week!

Homecoming week celebrates everyone coming back to the school, and the beginning of the school year. This year’s theme is Rockin’ with the Bengal’s, 50s Style. The week is full of fun events, starting Monday, September 11th. Details for each day will be posted at the bottom of the article. Everyone is encouraged to participate in homecoming week, and it can be extremely fun when you do! We want you to have fun, but please remember to dress appropriately each day to avoid being dress coded.

Each class will be given four gallons of paint (one gallon of each color, including black, white, orange, and your class color). Each class will then create a painting, including the theme, Bengal mascot or paws, class name, and year of graduation. At 7:00 pm each painting will be judged and a winner will be decided. Ask your class sponsor for additional rules.

Ms. Kurpiel Speaks on Class Games Being Rescheduled
by Rocco Addington '20
This week I interviewed the senior class sponsor, Ms. Kurpiel, about the class games being rescheduled. A lot of students were confused on why the class games were taking place on a Monday because in past years the class games have taken place on Wednesdays during homecoming week.
Ms. Kurpiel claimed the games were moved to Monday due to a scheduling error. It has been confirmed that the games will be held September 11th, due to the scheduling error. The error occurred when the Physical Activity Director, Mr. Malcolm, found out that there was a junior high football game scheduled for Wednesday the 13th.
The class games will be held at 6pm, at the public school stadium. The entrance fee will be two dollars. If you are a senior and you have purchased a class of 2018 shirt from Ms. Kurpiel, that can be used as your admission ticket. Remember to show up in your color to support your class! Freshman are green, sophomores are yellow, juniors are red, and seniors are blue.
