Submitted by Lauryn Scott, WHS School Correspondent
At Wetmore school, students celebrated with spirit during homecoming week. The week began with window decorating in downtown Wetmore on Sunday, followed by a community-wide meal at the ball field, a bonfire and a pep rally which was provided by the cheerleaders. Rob Ballenger, a senior, had positive feelings about the meal.
“I enjoyed the dinner and talking with friends,” he said.
After Sunday’s celebration, Wetmore leapt into spirit week. Monday at school was Pajama Day.
Freshman Reagan Osterhaus said, “Pajama Day was my favorite spirit week day, because you got to go to school while staying comfy.”
Tuesday was then colorful as the theme was Rainbow Day. On Wednesday, Wetmore students got to wear hats during the school day.
Student Alyssa Bloom said, “Hat day was my favorite day because I got to wear my bucket hat.”
Students mixed things up Thursday with Scrabble/Sharpie day.
Teacher Holly Hauffler said, “It was a very cute idea! Serendipity was my favorite word of the day. The students really thought outside of the box.”
Friday’s theme was Far Out Red and White Day. The cheerleaders kicked off the day with a school-wide pep rally. On Friday night, the Wetmore Cardinals had a “beak off” as they played the Axtell Eagles.
Shortly after the ending of the game, the homecoming candidates — McKayla Henry, Alena Pfrang, Jossie Shumaker, Beau Henninger, Chanler Morfitt and Ethan Osterhaus were called onto the field. Henry and Osterhaus were crowned by kindergarten students Ethan Hidalgo and Emmalyn Banks.
