It’s almost hard to believe that Conrad High School will start celebrating Homecoming on Monday.
This school year seems to be just screaming along at a blazing pace.
Monday the home boys and girls will be dressing up for Nerd Day which is always fun. And, you can bet someone will have duct tape on their glasses and most likely a pen-pouch in a shirt pocket.
Tuesday is Injured Play day and students will begin to decorate the halls and floats.
On Wednesday, the classes will have Generation Day. Freshman will dress like babies, Sophomores will be toddlers, the Juniors will look like – or try to – be adults and this won’t be so hard, the Class of 2011 will dress up as Senior Citizens.
Thursday is Super Hero Day and there ought to be any number of Supermen, Batmen, Wonder Women, Spider guy, John Wayne and Sandra Bullock characters moving about the campus.
Thursday is also Spirit Night and there will be a bon fire at 7 p.m. at the practice football field.
Friday is reserved for the traditional Red and White Day and the final vote will be taken for the Homecoming King and Queen.
This year there is a new wrinkle in the schedule of events.
In the past, the Pep Rally has been held on Saturday morning. It has been moved up a day to 2:40 p.m. on Friday. The King and Queen along with the court will also be announced at the Pep Rally.
The Cowgirls will be playing the Cascade Badgers in volleyball on Friday with the early action starting about 4:15 p.m.
While this isn’t their last regular season game, Senior Night for the Cowgirls – Taylor Johnson, Kara Bandow, Olivia Campbell and Kelli Fagan will take place before the varsity game with the Badgers.
Saturday morning the players in the Homecoming Parade will line up at the high school and the parade will commence to move at 10 a.m.
The parade is unchanged. It will come down 3rd Ave. SE, make a right on Main St. and disband in the area of the Keg.
Saturday at 1 p.m. the Cowboys will cage the Badgers on the football field.
When the game is over, you can just about head over to the high school gym and catch the start of the Cowgirls final home game of the regular season.
Saturday the home girls take on the high flying Eagles of Fairfield with the first serve slated to go over the net at 4 p.m. The winners of the hallway decorating and floats will be announced between volleyball matches.
Following the volleyball contest and lasting to the wee hours of midnight, there will be a dance in the high school commons.
