Homecoming Approaching

By Daniel Eng
The biggest football game in the Oyster Bay football team’s season is rapidly approaching. Not only is it the most important football game, but it is also the time for each grade to show off their school spirit. Leading up to homecoming, each grade competes in multiple events to show which grade has the most Oyster Bay pride. Students compete in events such as float building, hall decorating and of course the biggest one of them all, which is lip sync. Lip sync is where each grade creates a dance based on a theme that is chosen by the student council.
According to Ms. Danielle Urtheil, she has not yet had the meeting with the student council that decides the theme and colors. She will hold the meeting with all of student council towards the end of September. Spirit Week will begin on Monday,. October 25 and will run through the week and end on Friday, October 29. She announced that hall decorating will be Tuesday the 26, the pep rally will be Friday the 29 and Homecoming will be, according to Urtheil on the next Saturday, October 30. The winners of lip sync will perform their dance during the half time of the football game. Urtheil also stated that she and the student council plan on having sports events to raise money during the year.
“We are very excited for this year, because we have a bunch of fundraisers planned,” Urtheil said.
