Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Lincoln-Way North High School kicked off Homecoming festivities this week with a parade of more than 800 students and community members on Sunday, September 13.

Last night, nearly 80 teams of almost 700 students participated in the popular Homecoming Olympics at the schools stadium. Relays included balloon popping, frozen t-shirts, riddle races, and other competitive events. Student teams solicit teachers and staff members at North to sponsor their teams.

Homecoming Olympics is a long-time tradition at all Lincoln-Way High Schools and its one of our most popular events, said Dr. Mark Cohen, Principal of Lincoln-Way North. Its really what helps make Homecoming special at Lincoln-Way.

Tonight, students will return to North for the annual dodge ball tournament and the winners will square off for a student versus faculty game of dodge ball during the pep assembly on Friday. During the week, students also participate in theme dress days to earn points including tacky tourist outfits, middle school and college spirit wear and North black and gold spirit wear on Friday. This years theme is Welcome to the Golden Age.

Our student council members really drive the organization and excitement around Homecoming, said Cohen. Students energy and level of school spirit can be felt throughout the school.
