From Staff Reports
It may be a few weeks later than originally planned, but Slaton High School will conduct its homecoming events this week.
This year, there will be some changes due to COVID as a safety precaution.
This week, the students have been conducting spirit days at the schools.
The theme this year is “Push ‘Em Back,” where students are dressing up in clothing from past decades.
On Wednesday (Oct. 7), the annual homecoming parade was conducted at 6 p.m.
This year’s goal was to make it one of the largest parades in the school’s history.
After the parade, the school also conducted a community wide pep rally in Tiger Stadium’s parking lot.
The rally included an introduction of the homecoming court and a crowning of the Homecoming King.
The carnival was cancelled out of precaution for COVID.
The homecoming game will be Friday (Oct. 9) beginning at 7 p.m. against the Denver City Mustangs.
The homecoming queen will be announced at halftime.
Those who cannot attend the event in person can watch the game and halftime’s live stream on Slaton Independent School District’s YouTube Page, SlatonTigers.
