"Troy Story" 2019 Homecoming
THS Homecoming: “Troy Story”
The Troy High School Homecoming week is based on the theme “Troy Story,” with students imitating such characters as Andy, Woody, and Buzz Lightyear. One day’s theme is “You’ve Got a Friend In Me,” which requires students to dress like a friend.
The candidates are Sidney Fleek, Morgan Masters, Taylor O’Connor, Cassidy Rosenberger, Bryton Etherton, Cale Hamilton, Joseph Parks, and Tate Smith. The crowning will be at 6:30pm, before the Friday night game, October 4, against Centralia.
There are many Spirit Week activities planned. Troy High School will designate a hallway for each class to decorate. Students will whitewash windows on Wednesday night after the Powder Puff flag football game, which begins at 6pm. The 4-H grounds will be the location of a community bonfire at 8:45pm on Thursday night.
To end the Spirit Week activities, the pep rally will begin at 2:45pm Friday in front of the court yard. The rally will feature a candidates’ activity, cheers, and the pep band, all following a parade to Main Street from the school. The public is encouraged to attend. The floats to be featured at the Main Street parade and pep rally are centering around Toy Story.
The excitement comes to an end that evening with the crowning of the queen and king and the game itself, followed by the annual dance in the old gym.
