To help kick off homecoming week, the Wallace Student Council hosted a community tailgate/potluck party at the Wallace High School. It was a great way to really kick off homecoming and bring the community together. Some students and adults decorated cupcakes that were later used for the dance and others played games outside.
Throughout the week students and teachers participated in dress up days. The amount of students that participated in dress up days helped earn points for the overall class competition. There were daily winners voted on by teachers that also helped earn points for the class. Dress up days were Favorite Holiday, Decade Day, Wacky Wednesday and Country Day where students dressed to represent various countries.
On Wednesday classes decorated the halls, also a class competition. The winners of the decorating were: first place, seniors; second place, juniors and third place, freshmen.
On Friday the Student Council held a community pep rally in the gym. Everyone around the community was invited to help kick off our homecoming games. The winners of the dress up days were announced during the pep rally as well as the hall decoration winners.
The Miss/Mister Coach was also announced following a pageant held during the pep rally. The pageant consisted of a series of competitions which included swimwear, talent, evening wear and interview. Congratulations to the 2013 Mister Coach, Richard Lee.
Another new event that the Student Council added to the homecoming festivities was a yard decorating contest for the community. There were five participants in the competition and they all did an amazing job. The Clough family received first place, the Travis McConnell family was second and the Lungrin family was third. The Hager family was recognized for decorating their yard with hay bales. Each of the participants will receive a yard sign for their yard.
