Homecoming Celebrations: CHSD117
Antioch Community High School celebrated Homecoming during the week of October 11. Students and staff were excited to be back in the building and show their school spirit throughout the week. Students demonstrated amazing creativity on Wednesday for “Nothing But a Backpack Day.” Students used coolers, suitcases, shopping carts, garbage cans, a grill and even a kayak to carry their materials throughout the day. Sophomores and Seniors showed their experience as they were victorious in the Powder Puff games. On Thursday evening, the town of Antioch came together for a community parade to showcase the organizations of the high school. Following the parade, the stands were packed to watch the Fall sports teams perform very creative skits. King-Joaquin Barba, and Queen-Kathleen Quirke, led the students to light the bonfire. The students and community enjoyed a firework show sponsored by the Student Senate. On Friday evening, the Antioch Sequoit Varsity Football Team was victorious over the Round Lake Panthers, winning 54 – 6. Students enjoyed dancing under the Lions Club Pavilion at Williams Park while others enjoyed hanging out at the picnic tables having treats from Kiki’s Cotton Candy and a Sweet Girl. One Town, One Community, One School = an amazing 2021 Homecoming.
Lakes Community HIgh School celebrated Homecoming the week of September 27. Homecoming week is one of the most anticipated weeks of any student’s high school experience. Activities and competitions throughout the week allow students to come together and showcase their school spirit. Last year, like many things, homecoming was adjusted and celebrated virtually. You can imagine that bringing back homecoming festivities was welcomed with excitement, smiles and memories by students at Lakes. The students enjoyed a week of events that included a drive-in-movie, a parade down Eagle Way, flag football games, all fall senior night and a great football game. The week was capped off with a historic homecoming dance that took place outside. Students enjoyed great weather, light shows and music. While it was different than traditional homecoming celebrations, the students embraced each event and created new traditions in the process.
