Waukon High School announces schedule of events and activities for Homecoming Week next week

The week of September 30-October 4 is Homecoming Week at Waukon High School, culminating in the Waukon Indians facing off against the Oelwein Huskies in the annual Homecoming football game Friday, October 4. The theme of “Harness the Huskies” has been chosen for this year’s Homecoming, and students and staff throughout the Allamakee Community School District will spend the week partaking in various activities and events, including dress-up days, pep rallies and the traditional “Burning of the ‘W’.”

The activity schedule for Homecoming Week is as follows:

Monday, September 30 dress-up theme: “Meme Monday.” As long as it’s school appropriate, students can dress as a popular internet meme.
Tuesday, October 1 dress-up theme: “Tropical Tuesday.” Sunglasses, sandals and Hawaiian shirts will fill the school halls.
Wednesday, October 2 dress-up theme: “Western Wednesday.” Students will be showing off their best western gear by tipping their hats, kicking the dust off their boots and practicing their best cowboy and cowgirl accents.
Thursday, October 3 dress-up theme: “Throwback Thursday.” Whether it’s the 1970s or 1770s, students can dress to the era they choose. Don’t be surprised if some parents’ closets are raided for that old letter jacket.
- Burning of the ‘W’ pep rally starts at 7 p.m.  in the Waukon High School gym and will honor the Senior Court, crown a new King and Queen, recognize athletics, and burn the ‘W’.
Friday, October 4 dress-up theme: “Spirit Day.” Orange and Black, everywhere. Students will be dressed head to toe in the school colors as Homecoming Week is brought to a close.
- Homecoming Parade starts at 2 p.m. Route will begin at the Waukon Banquet Center and run to the stop lights, turning left to go by Post Office, then turning right down the one-way street by East Elementary, and then left to travel in front of West Elementary and finish up by the Middle School entrance and Wellness Center.
