Homecoming 2021

The Greatest Show on Turf

Homecoming has always been a tradition for LA and for most schools across America. It is a week filled with dress-up days that all eventually lead to a football game. Homecoming Pep Rallies are always the best!


Memories are made during Homecoming Week as you dress up, participate in the fun actitivities, build the class float, come to the big game, watch or ride in the parade and more!


This newsletter is designed to tell you more about the things we have planned so you can be involved!

Class Colors for Homecoming Week

For class tournaments, powderpuff, co-ed softball and any other class oriented games, each class has been assigned a color. Your T shirts must be this color. Remember that you will need numbers on shirts for class basketball tournaments.

Freshmen-Green

Early next week, you will get a School EMAIL with a FORM to SIGN UP for the Homecoming Week Activities you want to do! If you do not sign up for a Friday 3rd Block activity, you will be assigned to one!

Lip Sync Battle: Tuesday, Sept. 28

On Tuesday, Sept. 28 (which is Be A Star dress up day), we will have a Lip Sync Battle. It is open to any solo, duet or group act.

STICK UP an ADMIN

During lunches on Tuesday, you will have the chance to "stick" an LA Administrator. For $1, you will get a stripe of duct tape to use to "stick" up your administratior. At the end of lunch, we will remove the stand from under your administrator. If your class has done a good job, they will be stuck to the wall; if not, they will fall!
