Fall Homecoming 2018By aubrey bolinger and morgan noe
On Sunday, Sept. 16, students gathered around the hallways of PHS to decorate doors, and celebrate homecoming. Each grade was assigned a hallway and competed against each other for class points. Winners were chosen by PHS administration in the following days.
To get in the spirit of Homecoming, the school participated in “Spirit Week.” The days consisted of twin day, meme/character day, jersey day, class color day and purple out day. Each day, two of the most dressed up students were selected, receiving either a free game or free dance ticket.
The annual homecoming bonfire was held on Wednesday, Sept. 19. Students came together to support the Dragons for the upcoming homecoming football game against Fort Scott. The band, cheer and dance team performed, while head football coach Tom Nickelson gave a pep talk.
At the pep assembly on Friday, Sept. 21, students participated in homecoming games, where they ate doughnuts under a hula hoop for spirit points.There was also a homecoming candidate game, where the candidates and their escorts played a game, spinning around a bat, then carrying an apple between their heads.
Before the football game against Fort Scott, candidates rode in on convertibles, and walked across the field to coronation. Seniors Ximena Ibarra and Brett Wiemers were crowned queen and king. Ibarra was the first Latina Queen to be crowned in the past decade.
