Homecoming week in Steamboat
This year's theme is 'decades'
Steamboat Springs — Homecoming week is under way at the Steamboat Springs High School.
The theme this year is “decades,” prompting students to dress in garb spanning four decades, from the 1950s to the ’80s.
The week kicked off with a pep assembly and ice cream social Monday. Events continued with a picnic during Tuesday’s lunch.
Wednesday is ’70s Day, which includes a dance-off during lunch hour and a powder puff football game for the high school girls at 6 p.m.
Thursday is ’80s Day, giving students a chance to karaoke during lunch before cheering on the Steamboat volleyball team in three matches beginning with the freshmen at 4:30 p.m. The varsity team hosts Glenwood Springs at 6:30 p.m.
Friday is Red/White Spirit Day, bringing the school week to an end. The high school will have a barbecue at lunch and a parade at 2 p.m. on Lincoln Avenue.
The football team hosts Delta at 7 p.m. at Gardner Field. The homecoming royalty will be crowned during halftime of the football game.
The week wraps up Saturday with a boys soccer game at 11 a.m. at Gardner Field. Steamboat will host Centaurus in non-league action, and the tennis, volleyball and softball teams will be in action. The homecoming dance is from 9 p.m. to midnight at the high school.
During the week, each class is competing for the “Spirit Stick” award. The major categories in the competition include the float, participation during theme days, a barbecue and the talisman events Friday.
The intent of the events is to foster a sense of individual class pride, as well as overall school pride. The events have been structured to include participation of all students.
The winner of the “Spirit Stick” is announced during Friday’s football game, as well.
