Lion Homecoming is here!

It’s finally here. Waco High celebrates homecoming this week with festivities planned for every day of the week.

Monday is “don’t come to school day”. Seriously, all WISD students are enjoying a day off as teachers and staff attend school for a teacher in-service day.

Tuesday students return to school and WHS holds a Special Dress Theme day all week. Tuesday (10/11) is Tacky Day, so wear something tacky. Please remember the Standard Mode of Dress is still in effect. Keep it fun! 

Also on Tuesday the Lady Lions Volleyball Team will be holding their Pink-Out Tournament against the University Trojans. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Lady Lions ask everyone to help them promote Breast Cancer Awareness. Game starts at 6:15.

Wednesday is Class day. Freshmen will wear white. Sophomores will wear Black. Juniors will wear red and Seniors will wear Camo clothing.

Wednesday at Paul Tyson Field WHS will hold its annual PowderPuff Football game. The Junior girls take on the Senior girls in an intense game of flag football. Following the game will be the “Burning of the W”, a Giant metal W is set on fire, because you know, SPIRIT!

Thursday is Character Day. Dress up as your favorite character (Movies, Books, TV). For specifics call the campus.

Also Thursday, Mr. Claussen will open the new WHS store called the Lion’s Hub. Open mornings from 7:45-830, during lunch and also in the afternoons after school until 4:30. The store is stocked with school supplies with the WHS logo on them, water bottles, coffee mugs and coming soon, T-Shirts. Sales support the SKILLS-USA team.

Friday is Twin Day. Make the Wildcats see double and grab a friend to match up your look.

The Varsity Volleyball team also plays today at 5:15. Pep Rally will be at 3:20.

The Varsity game will be at 7:30 pm at the WISD Stadium against the Temple Wildcats. 

The 2016 King and Queen will be announced during halftime. The 2016 Homecoming Court is pictured below.
