Starting Monday students and staff can participate in “Around the World” themed homecoming festivities.

Students and staff have continent themes. Freshmen are North America, sophomores are Asia, juniors are Latin America, seniors are Europe, and staff are Oceania and Antarctica.

“The biggest hope is that we get many students involved. Homecoming, traditionally, is tied to football but it’s not how we do it here, it’s about clubs and organizations all showcasing what they do,” Student Council adviser Candace Fikis said. “The hope is to showcase the great things here at WeGo.”

Each day there will be a dress-up theme. Monday is PJs, Tuesday is tourist day, Wednesday is stuffed animal day (based on class theme), Thursday is World Cup day, and Friday is WeGo spirit wear.

“It has been popular to have our different spirit days, they will be a bit different but we’re still keeping a movie night, still doing the parade and the food,” Fikis said.

On Wednesday, “Grown Ups” will be shown on the football field at 7 p.m. as part of movie night.

On Friday, the assembly will be followed by clubs selling food outside entrance H as part of food fest.

Some of the sellers include Student Council with a taco truck, Anime Club with ice cream, math team selling hot dogs and burgers, and Compass will have fruit cups.

After food fest, the parade will initiate. Students have to be part of a club or sport to participate in it.

The Powderpuff game will take place on the field with juniors versus seniors at 2 p.m.

The homecoming dance will be Saturday at 7 p.m. in Bishop gym.

Homecoming dance tickets will be on sale starting Monday for $15. If students decide to pay at the door it will be $20.

“You have to have a ticket (to enter the dance). If someone wants to bring a guest that is not a student here, they will need to fill out a form through the dean’s office, and it is on their website too,” Fikis said.

Students can find the form by going to the school’s website, going to ‘for students’, then ‘forms’, and choosing ‘homecoming dance guest pass.’
