Homecoming Week at HLO – September 12-16

Homecoming Week at HLO – September 12-16

HLO will kick off the new school year with an early Homecoming celebration the second week of school. “With eight football games and only four home games – two of which are at Fulda and two at Heron Lake, the selection for a good Homecoming week is limited, so we get to start the school year out with a bang right away,” said Doyle Zellar, student council advisor. “But we got last year’s upper class student council together a week or so ago and got some tentative plans ironed out already.” This year’s theme will be “Waltz into Disney.” Each class will have a special Disney movie assigned to them which will come into play throughout the week.


The week will start off with a Monday, September 12th coronation and conclude with the parade, burger feed, football game, and dance on Friday, September 16th. Each class was assigned a Disney movie on which to base their respective dress-up days, movie, and parade float theme. Those movies and classes were assigned as follows: seniors–Cars, juniors-Incredibles, sophomores-Avengers, freshmen-Toy Story, eighth-Inside Out, and seventh-101 Dalmatians.
