"Totally 80s" Homecoming Goes Down in History
Homecoming week has come and gone and things are somewhat back to normal at Montrose R-14.
Spirit week involved students and faculty alike. Some of the favorite things of the week: Dress like your favorite 80s movie character: the Hoosier's basketball team attended school one day (Jacob Chavez, Malarie Fennell, Lindsay Eye, Peyton Lasswell, Morgan Walden, Drew Bailey, and Lane Wareham), Jennifer Gray and Patrick Swayze (Abby ogel and Clayton Steward AND Katelyn Steinbach and Dalton Jones), Smokey and the Bandit (Garrett Hilte and Parker Klass), Bill Cosby (Trent Hanlin), MacGyver (Brendon Engeman), and Tom Cruise (Jaidyn Steinbach) and Nerd day--who knew there were so many nerds in Montrose?!
On Friday, the day was full of excitement. The afternoon was spent decorating the JH and HS hallways, as well as competing in the poster contest. The elementary division was won by the 7th graders and the high school division was won by the freshmen.
Between the girls' and boys' games, the Junior Class held a live pie auction with Garrett Hilte serving as the auctioneer. Their class made approximately $900 on the auction. Thanks to everyone who donated and purchased pies!
Both the girls' and the boys' teams won their games against Hume. After the games, the Homecoming coronation took place. Emily Palmer was crowned princess and Katelyn Steinbach was named the 2017 Homecoming Queen.
After all of the pictures were taken, and the crowd had dispersed, the dance started. There were many tunes played throughout the evening, but some of the most enjoyable ones were the songs chosen from the 80s.
