West Linn is holding out for a hero: Homecoming week

The hype of the game, the decorations and the dance – these are the things students most look forward to when it comes to Homecoming. The Associated Student Body, the group of students who help make Homecoming happen, wish for all students to participate. They have put together porch decorations, assemblies and made plans for the election of Homecoming King and Queen.

Maddy Baldwin, senior and director of projects for ASB, plans to “make everyone excited about Homecoming, have everyone participate in the dress up days, as well as attend the assembly, football game and dance.”    

Leading up to the dance on Friday, the week will feature four dress up days:

Monday – Sloppy Day
Tuesday – Twin Day
Wednesday – Superhero Day
Thursday – Spirit Day

As the theme this year was superheroes, each grade chose different heroes to represent their class. The freshmen’s superhero is Incredible Hulk, sophomores’ is Superman, juniors’ is Spiderman, and seniors’ is Batman.

Not only will the students be participating, but so will the staff. They are putting together a staff dance for the homecoming assembly, and some  teachers will join in on the dress up days.

“We are trying our best to get them just as excited about homecoming as the students are,” Baldwin said. “Since we have put so much time and effort into Homecoming I can say it means a great deal to me and ASB. I hope the school appreciates it and us.”
