Boyden-Hull High School celebrated homecoming last week Sept. 18-22.
A dress-up theme was featured each day and students could be found wearing various forms of corresponding attire throughout the week.
On Monday, pajama day, students wore a variety of sleeping attire, including slippers and housecoats. Tuesday was neon day and bright colors could be seen everywhere.
Wednesday’s dress-up theme was Holiday Dress and students were encouraged to dress in their favorite holiday. Thursday was Beach/Luau day and the day was also themed for volleyball. Spirit Day was Friday and most students wore Comet and Nighthawk attire.
Coronation ceremonies were Tuesday evening. Each class presented a skit and coaches of the volleyball, cross-country and football teams spoke. Tory Van Voorst sang “Try.”
The 2016 king and queen, Shane Solberg and Kaylee Anderson, were present to crown the 2017 royalty.
