Winterfest Week - Jan. 23 - 28



HLO Winterfest 2023


The theme for the 2023 HLO Winterfest this year will be “Welcome to the Winter Olympic Games”. Winterfest will run from Monday, January 23 through Saturday, January 28. One main change from normal is that coronation will be during the school day at the high school on Tuesday the 24th at 2:45 pm due to basketball games that had to be rescheduled to Monday from winter storms.


The week’s activities are as follows:

Monday, January 23

No school – teacher inservice

GHockey at Windom 7 pm

GBB vs MCC at Fulda

BBB at Madelia

Tuesday, January 24

Day of dress – Coach vs. Player

Wednesday, January 25

Thursday, January 26

Friday, January 27

Busses will leave for Windom right after attendance for Winter Olympics and movie day.

The movie will be Maverick Top Gun at the Windom State Theater from 8:30- 10:30.

We will then head to the Windom Ice Arena for Winter Olympic Games. Bring warm clothes and ice skates if you have them.

We will dismiss one bus at a time to go to McDonalds to eat lunch. Students will need to bring money for that or for concessions if you choose to do so. Otherwise bring a sack lunch along.

Busses will return to school by 2:00 as we need to go get elementary students.
