The theme for Monday is ‘Merica Monday, where students will share their patriotism. Tuesday will be twin day, so you can grab a friend and dress up together. On Wednesday, students will wear very colorful clothing, almost like a “color war.” Seniors should wear pink, juniors should wear orange, sophomores wear blue, freshmen purple, and staff green. Thursday will be -er day, which is where students dress up like something that ends in -er, -or, etc. Finally, on Friday, students will show their Boone Toreador spirit for Spirit Day. There will be photographers taking pictures of costumes to be posted on social media for a chance to win a free ticket to homecoming.
Along with the fun dress up days, students can also participate in contests. This year, the contests will be “Biggest Muscles” on Monday, “Biggest Hair” on Tuesday, “Most Sparkle” on Wednesday, and “Best Legs” on Thursday. To vote for contests, students will need to like the Boone TV Facebook page. The winner of each contest will receive a free ticket to the dance.
There will also be other events that will take place to prepare for homecoming. The street painting will take place on Saturday, September 24th. The event will take place from 1-5 pm. Students are asked to bring their own supplies.
The powderpuff game will be Sunday, September 25th at 7:00 pm. The junior girls will play against the senior girls and boys will be cheerleading.
Also sports teams, clubs, and classes will be making banners. These banners will be posted around several local businesses. There will be a contest for the banners; people can vote by adding donations into a jar that the businesses will have. All of the donations will be given to the Hope Foundation. The reward for the winning team will be a donut party. If you would like more information about how you can help, you can see Mrs. Lumley. She is also asking that if you have any pickle jars or canning jars you would like to get rid of, you can give them to her.
After school on Friday, people can meet for a few hours to start decorating the gym for the dance. The decorating will be continued on Saturday morning at 8:00 am. The dance will be held in the gym Saturday night from 8:00-11:00 pm. The theme for the dance is neon. Tickets can be purchased before the dance in the office or at the dance. Each ticket will be $10.
