The week also features a much different feel than the traditional homecoming week. Dress up days will feature Halloween movie themes and the high school will host a TKHS Haunted Trail.
The Homecoming Court was named today and the 2020 King and Queen will be crowned Friday, Oct. 30. Members of this year’s court are: seniors, Amelya Thorne, Lila Nelson, Kaitlyn Lipscomb, Vinny Ferranti, Jackson LaJoye, and Austin Rounds; juniors are Amanda Bond and Eli Fliearman; sophomores are Tahlia Choiniere and Graysen Stahle; freshman are Alivia Raak and Kyle VanHuitsma.
Halloweek will feature a weeklong celebration the week of Oct. 26-Oct.30. Special dress up days will revolve around Halloween movie themes: Monday movie theme is “A Quiet Place” with students wearing their comfiest and quietest clothing; Tuesday highlights “The Shining” with students encouraged to take part in Twins Day and dress up like their best friend; Wednesday is “Nightmare Before Christmas” with students encouraged to wear a Halloween/Christmas mashup; Thursday is “It” with students encouraged to dress up like their favorite scary movie character; and Friday is costume day when students are encouraged to wear an appropriate Halloween costume to school.
