Glow Hard or Go Home

October 05, 2017


Throughout the week of September 25-29, the Silver Lake High School celebrated their 30th annual homecoming! The entire week was full of fun activities, tons of neon, and a lot of school pride! To throw in a little competition, each day was started with judging. The class to have the highest percentage of students who dressed up got to avoid the long lunch line (and earn some bragging privileges). All of the students and staff at the high school thank EVERYONE who made this week possible. A special thanks goes to Cleo Mousel and the Cheerleaders.

On Monday, Homecoming week was started with wearing pajamas to school. The school was full of onesie footed pajamas, slippers, and lots of yawns. It is safe to say that the entire Silver Lake staff and students would all agree that wearing pajamas to school everyday wouldn’t be a good thing because sleeping would be too tempting. Foreign Exchange student, Alana Doubkova had this to say pajama day: “Wearing pajamas to school made me want to just go home sit on the couch and watch a movie. It was really fun to see everyone participate in pajama day.”

On Tuesday, students came to school looking like they were from Ancient Rome by wearing some creative togas. Mrs. Bonifas really showed her Toga spirit by being the “Toga Security Monitor” by keeping us all in check.

On Wednesday, the students and staff from the high school bussed down to the elementary and had a fun time filming the 2017 “Rolling” by Jackson Michelson Lip Dub! Go check it out @https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJfXVJMB5ik&t=191. Thank you Mrs. Schulte and Mrs. Hinrichs for putting the Lip Dub together and thank you Mr. Bauer and Mr. Arntt for allowing us to take some time out of school to do this fun project! Neon day was a 100% participation in grades 7-12.

On Thursday, the yearly tradition of having a color war took place with 100% participation by students AND staff. Eleventh grade really showed they were eager to redeem a color war win (all for the fun of some competition). They came to school looking like they belonged in the sky with the clouds by wearing all white. Between the 11th and 8th graders, 11th grade came out on top to go first in the lunch line. Junior Lexi Allen said this about color war day: “It was truly a day you had to be dedicated to win. It was an intense war between classes, and I loved the competition between a few of the grades. Color War was truly a redeemed win for the Juniors, and we plan to take the stage again as winners next year as seniors!”

On Friday, the hallways were full of maroon, silver, and black. There was Mustang pride galore. The students enjoyed an afternoon with a pep rally for the football players and royalty candidates: Alyssa Schmidt, Kinsley Mankhey, Kristin Hinrichs, Kia Wengler, Reid Parr, Mark Thurston, James Struck, and Daniel Acosta. The 2017 royalty were Alyssa Schmitt and Reid Parr. Congratulations! Thank you, again, to everyone who made homecoming possible.
