As of Wednesday, September 27, 2017
SUNNYSIDE Friday night lights must mean homecoming season is just around the corner. So, for the next five weekends lower valley schools will hold spirit week activities, culminating in a football game and in most cases a homecoming dance.
To kick off the season, the Sunnyside Christian High School Knights will celebrate their homecoming with spirit theme days all this week.
Tuesday’s theme was ‘Farm and Ranch’ with today’s theme hailed as ‘Elderly Person’ day. Thursday students will be ‘All-American’ and Friday is ‘Spirit Day,” Monday, students dressed Hawaiian style.
As has become a time-honored tradition, a macho man volleyball game is held along with a powder puff football game during homecoming week. The boys’ volleyball was played Tuesday and the girls’ football game will be Thursday during the eighth hour of school, Building Principal Dean Wagenaar said.
Eighth hour is from 2:25 to 3:30 p.m. for parents interested in seeing the games.
The pep assembly will also be held during eighth period Friday, complete with an appearance of the spirit float and the announcement of the homecoming court.
The Knights 8-man football team will face Eniat on the Sunnyside High School’s Clem Senn Football Stadium at 7 p.m. Friday.
