Get ready for Spirit Week 2022

Homecoming week will begin on Saturday, October 1 and will end with the traditional dance on Saturday, October 8. Who will win the spirit stick? Lancers are thrilled to earn spirit points for their class to try to be the winners.

Although the senior class often wins, the juniors have won in the past. Even the freshman class has come close.

On Saturday, October 1, the Homecoming parade in New Market officially starts off the week. The parade includes multiple floats made by different student classes and organizations, fire engines from local fire departments, the marching band and other teams. Lancers come out and support each other.

On Sunday, October 2, each class will be painting their portion of the hill behind the school. Students use cans of spray paint to design images related to the spirit week theme. Freshmen can show up and help out.  A video from 2014 shows how it is done.

Beginning on Monday, October 3, students will be able to earn spirit points by dressing for each theme. The points will be counted throughout the week and the class with the most points will earn the “spirit stick” during the pep rally in first block on Friday, October 7.

Throughout the week, each day has a different theme that all students enjoy participating in. Past theme days have included: Hawaiian Day, Class Color Day, Camo Day, America Day, and more! Red, Black, and Bow Day is always on Friday.

In the evening of Friday, October 7, the homecoming football game will be held.  The Tribe, Cheerleaders, and Pom and Dance Team rev up the crowd. The Homecoming King and Queen are announced.

Saturday night, the Homecoming dance is in the cafeteria. It is very popular for all classes and most students go with a group of friends.
