Homecoming week underway at NRHS

Homecoming week festivities got underway last weekend and have been ramping up all week at New Richmond High School.

On Saturday, student groups began painting downtown business windows to help get the community into the Homecoming spirit, and the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club put on its annual volleyball tournament.

Dress-up days began on Monday, and the first of two pepfests was held.

But there is still plenty of Homecoming week fun to be had. Perhaps the highlight of Homecoming week, other than the Friday night football game, is the Varsity Show, which happens at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the high school auditorium. It’s a sort of variety show and talent show wrapped into one, and the king and queen will be crowned at the event. Admission to the Varsity Show is $1 for students, staff and community members alike.

Friday night’s highlight event is, of course, the Homecoming football game versus Ellsworth. Between the first and second quarter of the game, the New Richmond High School Athletic Hall of Fame will introduce its 2013 class of inductees.

They will be honored again at a luncheon ceremony in the high school commons on Saturday, Oct. 5. The program begins at 12:15 p.m., and tickets are $5 at the door.

The Homecoming Dance is scheduled for Saturday in the high school commons. This year’s event promises to be an informal affair with students wearing white or yellow T-shirts for the “Light Up the Night” theme.
