Highlights from Homecoming Week/Dance 2017:

This year at Du Quoin High School the theme for homecoming was “The Homecoming Games”. The Homecoming Headquarters helped provide activities and special dress-up days to help spark up school spirit. The dress-up days included: 

  • Pajama Day (Monday)
  • Crazy/‘Merica Day (Tuesday)
  • Class Color Day (Wednesday)
  • Dress your District Day (Thursday), and Red
  • Black Day (Friday). 

Some activities throughout the week included Archery, Potato Sack Relay, Bottle Flipping relay and most importantly the annual homecoming scavenger hunt on Sunday and the dance on Saturday. All the grades competed for the title of “most-spirited class” by winning different lunch-time/ELT activities and dressing for each day’s theme. Over all, the freshman won the majority of activities included throughout the week.

The Varsity football team had a thrilling win against the Pinckneyville Panthers with a score of 57-7. And to make matters more exciting, the homecoming king and queen were announced at the conclusion of the game as Olivia Cravens (queen) and Hank Stewart (king).
