Homecoming week is Oct. 27-Oct. 31 and the theme this year is “Coast to Coast.” The spirit days this year include Pajama Day on Monday, Twin Day on Tuesday, Mathlete vs. Athlete on Wednesday, Throwback Thursday and Spirit Day on Friday.

The dodgeball tournament is Monday, Oct. 27 in the old gym and the registration begins Oct. 13 during both lunches and sign up forms are also available on the school website. It is $30 for a team of six people and the price includes one slice of pizza per person. There will also be a bracket challenge which costs $2 to participate in.

“The dodgeball tournament is going to get a lot of hype because it’s something new this year and I think a lot of teams are going to get super competitive,” leadership student Sam Wainman said.

Thursday is the powder-puff game where the junior girls will challenge the senior girls in a battle of the classes beginning at 7 p.m. The guys will be putting on a performance during halftime, which they have been working on for six weeks. The parade will take place during school on Friday, Oct. 31. To match the theme, floats will include everything from Key West to Wild West. The homecoming game is on Friday against  University Orlando beginning at 7:30. The homecoming king and queen will be crowned during halftime.

The homecoming dance is Nov. 1 and non-Hagerty student forms are due Oct. 13. Tickets go on sale Oct. 13 and are $20 the first week, $25 the second week and $30 at the door. Students must have a student ID to purchase a ticket. The theme “City Nights and Neon Lights” will incorporate a lot of lighting around the gym and big city decorations that are created by the Art Honor Society. The dance starts at 8 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m.
