High School News

     With the 2021-2022 school year barely underway, homecoming week hits AHS early this year, starting Monday Aug. 30 and going through Sept. 3. Organized by the fall cheerleaders, homecoming week activities allow students to dress up each day in fun ways to boost school spirit, while the fall athletes hope to bring home homecoming victories. 
     This year’s cheerleaders have selected spirit days that will give everyone a great opportunity to participate. Monday starts off the week with “when I grow up day” allowing students to wear clothes that represent their dream job. Tuesday will be generation day with the students getting to go back in time to their childhood or to the future as they age. The middle of the week is Disney+ day, with students dressing up as their favorite Disney or cartoon characters. The crazy dress up days continue on Thursday with surfers vs. bikers day in an attempt to replicate the Disney Teen Beach Movie. On Friday AHS students will take on the red, black, and white school colors with Fan Frenzy Friday.
     The sports teams will be bringing their Husky strength to homecoming week action. The  softball team starts off the week at home on Aug. 31 at 6:30 against Centennial. Coach Bell's girls golf squad will then compete on Thurs. Sept 2, playing at York, along with cross country competing at Seward that day;  volleyball will be at home vs. York, and softball will play at York. Ending the week, the Huskies have their first home football game of the season against Bennington on Friday Sept 3 starting at 7. 
     The traditional homecoming parade will start in the middle school parking lot at 2 pm on Friday and end in the courthouse parking lot with the homecoming pep rally, complete with the performance of the two senior dances performed by senior athletes and band members, as well as a dance by the Husky cheerleaders.  The big question is, who will the mystery guest speaker be?
     The homecoming court will be presented during halftime of the game against the Badgers with the king and queen being crowned by last year’s royalty, Brady Collingham and Ellie Wanek. Students will then finish off the week-long celebration in the high school gym with the homecoming dance, set to begin shortly after the football game. 
     We hope you’ll be able to join us as we celebrate our Husky pride all week long!
