Mount Si High School celebrated its homecoming last week, with spirit days, sports, and circus-themed dance with live performers.
For Thursday’s Camo Day, senior Julianna Foster borrowed some gear from her father to blend in. “I’m a tree!” she announced during her lunch break. Her friend, Amanda Triboulet bought some camp gear just for the day, but a lot of students didn’t have to work hard on their costume for the day. Maddy Trout, busily working on her phone in a circle of friends, sported a camp sweatshirt and backpack that she says are pretty standard for her.
“I go hunting in this, with my Dad,” she explained.
Other activities of Homecoming Week, Oct. 13 to 18, included: Crazy Sock Day on Monday; Twin Day, Tuesday; Pajama Day, Wednesday, and Class Color Day Friday. Every grade level was assigned a color to wear, although seniors got multiple colors — camo. Both the volleyball and girls soccer teams hosted home games on Tuesday, and the football team hosted Issaquah on Friday.
“A Night under the Big Top” was the theme for Saturday’s Homecoming Dance in the high school gym.
Maddy Trout had no problem finding her gear for Thursday’s Camo Day.
