Homecoming Week is only the second week of school this year at Park Rapids Area High School.

Students have been voting for their Homecoming royalty during the first week of school, which started Tuesday, Sept. 6. Homecoming queen and king will be crowned at a school assembly on Monday morning, Sept. 12.

According to a student council decision, school spirit days next week will include Denim Day on Monday, Little Me on Tuesday (with students dressing in the style they wore as small children), “Why Do I Own This?” Wacky Wednesday, Adam Sandler Day on Thursday (a baggy look with big shorts and a big T-shirt), and Panther Pride Day on Friday.

Friday’s Homecoming activities will include powder puff volleyball, pep fest followed by powder puff football, then a parade starting at the high school at approximately 2:20 p.m., the big game against East Grand Forks at 6 p.m. and a dance to follow.

The winners will go on to perform at Section 6A competition Feb. 4 in Hawley.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
