Basketball Homecoming

Makenzi McAteer, Lauren Schmidt, Kelsey Coomber, Victoria Tsitouris and Jimmy Richardson show their "Geek Squad" style!

What is the one thing that gets everyone excited for Homecoming? For students at Parkwood, it's Spirit Week. Senior, Audrey Italiano, says "Dressing up for Spirit Week always makes me happy and gets me pumped for the game!"

Spirit week is not only for students but for staff as well. It’s a fun way to take pride in your school and be creative. Although this year's Spirit Week was cut short by a snow day on Monday, the rest of the week was a success with students following this dress up schedule:
Tuesday: Geek Squad
Wednesday: Color Wars
Thursday: Grandparents Day
Friday: Black Out

Following the end of school Friday was the homecoming game against Sun Valley High School. Before the game began Parkwood presented their homecoming court. The theme this year was cartoon characters and the winners were:
Freshman: Josh Hawkins as The Hulk
Sophomore: Austin Capps as Mario
Junior: Jimmy Richardson as Fred Flintstone
Senior Prince: Preston Helms as Superman
Senior King: Andrew Jauch as Spiderman
