The Ladysmith High School Student Council would like to announce that this year’s homecoming week, or perhaps "HomeCOVIDing Week" will begin on Monday, Oct. 12.
This year’s theme is Lumberjack Pride. This year’s homecoming activities and dress-up days will allow students to show their school spirit.
The dress-up days are as follows:
Monday: NetFlix Binge Day — Students are invited to show what they would wear to settle for a couple seasons of their favorite NetFlix series. (School Dress Code applies)
Tuesday: Vacation Day — Cancelling plans due to COVID got you down? We got you covered…...come dressed to enjoy your dream vacation!!
Wednesday: Workout Wednesday — Quarantine Fifteen find you? Well, come dressed to work it off…..just work it off, work it off!
Thursday: Country Jack/City Jack — There haven't been many formals or square dances this year so let’s get ready to strut our stuff. Seniors and sophomores are invited to dress in their formal best for the ball. Juniors and freshman are invited to come in their country hoe-down best.
Friday: Purple and Gold Day!! — What would Homecoming be without a chance to flood the halls with Purple and Gold!!! Show your school spirit!!
This year being a bit different, homecoming organizers know the community will have to support student-athletes and band members from a distance.
Many of the sports teams have events next week. Some will be streamed and available on Facebook or the school website for viewing.
Jackie Wallin has qualified for the WIAA State Girls Golf Meet and will travel to Kohler for the Wisconsin State Tournament on Monday, Oct. 12 and Tuesday, Oct. 13. Good Luck, Jackie!!
On Tuesday, Oct. 13, the Ladysmith cross country team will be participating in their conference meet, and the girls volleyball team will be traveling to Bloomer to take on the Blackhawks. While these teams are not on their home turf, we wish them luck and will cheer from here.
The coronation of the Homecoming King and Queen will take place Wednesday morning. Coronation will be live-streamed on Lumberjack TV at 11:10 a.m. and the recording will be available on Facebook and on the district website later in the day.
