It’s that time of the year as Wolf Point High School students get ready for the school’s annual Homecoming and Native American Week put on by Student Council and the Indian Club.
There will be several activities for students to be involved in throughout the week.
For this year’s Native American Week, there will be a tipi- raising on Monday, a student and parent activity on Tuesday, speakers and presentations on Wednesday and a pow-wow and parade on Thursday.
For this year’s homecoming parade, students will create floats based on songs and decorate the walls in a retro theme. The Homecoming and Native American Week Parade will take place on Friday at noon.
In addition to dressing up parade floats and the walls of the hallway, students will get the opportunity to dress up to a specific theme each day to earn spirit points. The class with the most points will receive early lunch dismissal for a week.
Students will vote for homecoming royalty on Wednesday during lunch. The king and queen will be announced the next day at the bonfire, following the volleyball game against the Lustre Lady Lions.
Homecoming week also features several sporting events. Wolf Point students and fans are invited to participate in a dodge ball tournament, in the Wolves’ Den, Monday night, starting at 7:30 p.m. In addition to the varsity volleyball game on Thursday, the Lady Wolves will take on the Poplar Lady Indians on Friday at 2 p.m. and the Harlem Lady Wildcats on Saturday at 1 p.m.
The Wolves’ varsity football team will also be playing on Friday night as they take on the Roundup Panthers at 7 p.m.
Following the football game will be the Homecoming dance from 9 p.m. to midnight.
