‘Star Wars’ theme for GHS homecoming

Gothenburg junior and senior high students can get out their light sabers next week as the school celebrates homecoming with a “Star Wars” movie theme.

Homecoming candidates were announced during a morning pep rally Wednesday (today).

Spirit week will end with a dance Thursday, Oct. 18, after Swede football players battle the Kearney Catholic Stars on the gridiron.

On Monday, seniors are asked to dress as ninjas, juniors as cowboys, sophomores as American Indians, freshman as pirates, eighth graders as dogs and seventh graders as cats.

The wearing of stars and stripes on Tuesday is requested as students show American pride.

Wednesday is Color Day to “blind the Stars.” Seniors will wear white, juniors black, sophomores red, freshman blue, eighth graders yellow and seventh graders purple.

Swede colors are Thursday’s attire to show school pride.

A homecoming parade is set for Thursday with lineup at 1:20 p.m. at the school.

The parade will begin in front of Dudley Elementary on Avenue G and turn east by Building Blocks Child Care Center and Preschool. Paraders will then go north on Avenue G to 20th Street before turning south on Avenue G to return to Dudley.

A homecoming pep rally will follow in the performing arts center where float winners and prizes will be announced.

The football game begins at 7 p.m. that evening followed by the crowning of the homecoming king and queen on the field.

A dance will be from 10 p.m.-12:30 a.m. in the elementary gym. Doors close at 11 p.m.

Out-of-town guests need to be signed up in the office by Wednesday at 3 p.m.
