An extra dose of school spirit will light up Coupeville High School this week during a homecoming week packed with sports, talent and dancing.

The week will open with Top Gun Volleyball on Monday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. in the high school gym. Classes will compete against each other for the ultimate champion title.

“Top Gun is definitely the best. Top Gun is where it’s at; everyone’s there,” said student Mitch Pelroy.

Students will showcase their various talents at Chautauqua on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center.

The talent show will feature seven or eight acts by students, from sports team performances to singing to students playing music they wrote themselves.

“Last year, there was a drum-off competition and that was really great,” said ASB advisor Michael Western.

A community parade will take place Friday, Oct. 14 at 3:30 p.m. Athletes, bands, the cheer team and homecoming floats and royalty will dazzle Coupeville. Alumni are welcome to participate.

Coupeville High School will face off against formidable Archbishop Murphy High School for the Homecoming Football Game Friday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. The Homecoming Royalty Parade will entertain during halftime. Each class is working on floats and the crowd will vote on their favorites.

Capping off the week is the Homecoming Dance on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 9 p.m. to midnight.

During the week, students will show off their school spirit with dress-up days including western, toga and business. The theme of this year’s Homecoming is “once upon a time.”
