Students at Pendleton High School have been traveling back in time this week for Homecoming. This year’s theme featuring the school mascot is “Bucky Travels in a Time Machine!”
The planned dress-up days have been:
Monday 10/9: Bucky starts his time travels to the crazy 1960s; wear Hippies clothes like flower power and tie-dye
Tuesday 10/10: Bucky goes back in time and listens to his favorite music; wear your favorite band/music group T-shirt of any genre
Wednesday 10/11: Bucky travels back in time to when his parents were in high school; wear anything 1980s or 1990s
Thursday 10/12: Bucky returns to PHS for “Go Bucks” Day; wear anything Bucks or Buckaroos and go crazy with green and gold.
Due to State In-Service on Friday, 10/13, there are only four days of school this week. On Thursday morning is the all-school Homecoming Assembly. The football game against Ontario is Thursday night at 7:00 PM at the Round-Up Grounds. The Homecoming Court will be presented during halftime, and the Queen will be crowned. The Homecoming Dance is Friday night at the high school.
The annual Mud Wars competition will be held Wednesday, 10/18, at the Happy Canyon Arena. This traditional PHS event usually happens during Homecoming week, but it was moved to next week due to a scheduling conflict at the arena.
Grace Pitner, PHS Senior and member of PHS Leadership said the week has been really fun for students to dress up and get in the Buckaroo spirit. Pitner said, “Homecoming is a lot of work for the Leadership students, and the weeks leading up to now have been very busy. But it’s great when it all happens, and students have a good time participating in the fun!”
