Mariners celebrate Homecoming Week; bonfire set for Friday

It’s Homecoming Week at Homer High, and that means celebrating Mariner spirit every day. All week long, students have shown their school pride at themed spirit days: ’Merica Day, PJ Day, Twin Day, Class Color Day, and Blue and Gold Day. On Friday, the school invites the whole community to come out to a Homecoming Bonfire in the parking lot from 7 to 10 p.m. Bring your own lawn chairs; games and snacks will be provided. Kick-off time for the homecoming football game against Voznesenka is 2 p.m. Saturday. The Homecoming Parade and crowning of Homecoming Royalty will be at half-time. Awards will be given out for parade groups, including Most Enthusiastic and Best Display of Mariner Spirit. And Saturday night, the week rounds out with the Homecoming Dance. Any guests must attend a district high school and be signed up in advance.
