  1. Spirit Days: Here’s you chance to  go crazy with blue/green paint, markers, body glitter, and costumes! Head to your local party, costume, or arts and crafts store to arm yourself with the supplies you need to show your school spirit. You can decorate your face, hands, arms…bonus points if you bathe in colored paint to show us that you’re truly proud to be seen in the blue and green.
  2. Pep Rally and Lunch Activities: Get ready for a weekend of fun! This is your opportunity to hang out with friends (or *cough cough* disappear altogether for the rest of the afternoon), laugh, cheer, shout, and participate in goofy games (I mean, who could resist the donut eating contest in the cafeteria or the scooter scooting contest across the floor of the gymnasium?).
  3. Parade: Marching Band, dance team, JROTC, and many others will be a part of the celebration at 5 pm Friday as it travels from the Safeway parking lot at Hunters Woods shopping center (going along Colts Neck and South Lakes Drive) to the high school. Come see the performances and take a look at the incredible floats that students made!
  4. Food Trucks: Ah, food. Good food, nonetheless. Need I say more? They’ll be set up from 5 to 6:30 pm in the stadium-side parking lot. If you’re in need of a snack or dinner, you’re covered!
  5. Football Game: Watch the Seahawks take on Langley Friday evening from 7-9 pm. Spend more time with friends, family, and significant others while experiencing one of America’s favorite sports. (Visit the Seahawk Athletics Site for seasonal passes or buy tickets at the game for $5.)
  6. Homecoming Dance: Saturday is the day to dress up for a night on the town! Not only do you get to look snazzy (and take really cool Insta photos), but you also get more quality time with your friends or a date! From 8-11:30 pm, have fun, dance the night away, and enjoy the treats. Make this evening one for the books! (Tickets will be able in the cafeteria during Homecoming week for $25 a piece, and are $30 at the door.)
