Heres+to+a+happy+Haunted+Homecoming%21
Here’s to a happy Haunted Homecoming!

Are you confused about Homecoming? Are you left going ‘boo-hoo’ at your lack of knowledge on the parade, game and dance? Do not fret, this October season Newspaper is creepin’ it real with a guide on all things Homecoming, all in one easy accessible spot. 

A Brew-tiful Day for a Haunted Homecoming Parade

The Homecoming parade, which has always been on the Friday before the dance, after the Homecoming assembly and during the school day, has now been moved to Oct. 14, the same day as the dance. However, the Homecoming parade will be earlier in the day and will start at 10:00 AM. Each float in the Homecoming parade will have their own theme, and yes, there will be candy being chucked out. 

A Bad to the Bone Haunted Homecoming Dance

This year, the Haunted Homecoming dance will occur on Oct. 14, and will begin at 7:00 pm and end at 10:00 pm. The doors for the dance will close at 8:00 pm, so make sure you boo-gie your way up to the school early to wait in line. The dance itself will occur in the main gym, and there will be a booth in the front foyer for you to give your tickets to. Homecoming tickets can be purchased on MySchoolBucks.com or with cash or check before and after school in front of the auditorium. Ticket sales will occur until Oct. 12, the Thursday before Homecoming, so be scary fast with your ticket buying! 

Be careful about your fees and fines, as you will not be able to purchase a ticket until you pay them off. If you are unsure of any fees and fines that you may have, you can check MySchoolBucks.com for money that you owe to the school. 

Bringing the ‘Spirit’ to Spirit Week

One of the best parts about Homecoming is showing off your fa-boo-lous fashion sense with the annual Homecoming Spirit Week. Each day of the week, you will show off your undying Pirate pride with an outfit fitting the theme for the day.

For Monday, the theme is “Are you Afraid of the Dark”, which encourages students to channel your inner goth and wear an entirely black outfit to school.

For Tuesday, the theme is “Halloween Town”, which encourages students to wear their fang-tastic Halloween costumes, as long as they are school appropriate. Students may also not wear face paint or face masks, or bring weapons. 

For Wednesday, the theme is “The Addams Family”, which encourages students to wear outfits representing their class-assigned stage of life. Freshmen are Pubert Addams, which means they will have to dress fittingly as babies. Sophomores are toddlers, so they should get their tantrums and bibs ready. Juniors are Morticia and Gomez Addams, which means they are the adults of the family and should dress in their best, classy adult clothing. Seniors are Grandmama, which means they will have to get their Werther’s Originals and their canes ready. Teachers will be Wednesday Addams, and will be rocking their best teenager fits.

For Thursday, the theme is ‘Thriller’, which is calling for students to dress as the undead, or alternatively in pajamas. Although the theme is zombie, students cannot wear face paint or face masks; perhaps you should go for a less gorey look and opt for a more sleep deprived high schooler appearance. 

For Friday, the theme is ‘Pirate Pride’, and students should wear their class colors. For freshmen, the class color is white. For sophomores, the class color is gray. For juniors, the class color is light blue. For seniors, the class color is navy blue. The staff will wear black.

See Your Favorite Guys and Ghouls at the Homecoming Football Game

This year the Homecoming football game will begin at 7:00 PM and will end at 10:00 PM. The Homecoming king and queen will be crowned at the football game. The game will be St. Charles High versus St. Charles West. Make sure you show support for the spooktacular Pirate players, cheerleaders, marching band and dancers! Everybody and their mummy is going to be there.
