USD 410 students, kindergarten through grade 12, and community members will assemble at 2:30 p.m. Friday at Joel H. Wiens Stadium for the 2010 Hillsboro High School homecoming pep rally.
With the Arts & Crafts Fair scheduled for Saturday, and numerous vendors expected to be near the downtown area by Friday afternoon, the school decided to move the pep rally to the stadium.
?We?ll do it this way this year, and then evaluate it for next year,? said Max Heinrichs, HHS principal.
The pep rally will be led by the HHS cheerleaders under the direction of cheer coach Valerie Duerksen.
The queen and king candidates will be featured.
Becky Faber, Bethany Hawkinson, Sarah Hill, Hayley Jirak and Hayley Pankratz are the queen candidates. Ben Bebermeyer, Dylan Delk, Jarod Hamm, Daniel Kenney and Chance Reece are the king candidates.
The coronation will be at 6:30 p.m. before the football game against Sterling, which will start at 7 p.m.
Also during the pep rally, the results of the HHS Student Council fundraiser will be announced. The high school teacher and the class president with the most money in their container will receive a pie in their face.
The two class presidents with the least amount of money in their container will do the pie honors to the ?winning? teacher and class president.
The traditional homecoming dance after the game, sponsored by the student council, is being co-sponsored by the GAP Culture Club student organization as a community service project.
GAP is providing free admission to all HHS students who contribute at least one nonperishable food item. Students will be asked to contribute the regular $3 admission fee if they choose not to bring a nonperishable food item.
GAP is sponsored by Jill Hein and Janet Whisenhunt.
