Monday was Rocking a Remix day, and students wore mismatched clothing. The rest of the week will see similar themed-dress days.
“The only one I don’t have an outfit for is 80s Day,” said freshman Joshua Reynolds. “I’m going to be in the parade, I’m in the jazz band.”
Other students are excited to take part in the parade.
“I will be with SOAR,” said Mallela Orozco, referring to the Sexual Orientation Alliance Representatives high school organization.
Freshman Mue Eh said she is excited for float building ahead of the parade, which will roll down Main Street for the Homecoming parade 6 p.m. Thursday. The parade returns to Main Street after the tornado last year kept it from the downtown and at the high school instead.
Later that evening, one king and one queen candidate will be chosen as Homecoming royalty after a pep rally 7 p.m. Thursday at the MHS/Community Auditorium.
Students have also been preparing for the annual Homecoming dance, figuring out what to wear and finding a date to take with. The dance is set for 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday at the high school cafeteria.
