The halls of Hopkins High School were buzzing with school pride last week. On Friday, the last day of Homecoming Week, the day started with a parade led by the Lean Mean Performance Machine and followed by staff members holding posters and delivering candy.
Throughout homecoming week, the Hopkins Student Council planned an entire spirit week with dress up days and games between class periods. Themes for spirit days included Jersey Day, TikTok Day, Decades Day, and Class Colors.
Student council members Sophie Norman and Joe Ramlet emceed the pepfest where students enjoyed performances from the cheer squad, dance team, and LMPM. Seniors Faith Agboola and Blaine Loleka were crowned Hopkins High School Homecoming Royalty from a Homecoming court of six students.
After a rousing pep fest, students and community members packed the stands at the Hopkins High School stadium where the Royals took on the Park Center Pirates. The Royals were able to pounce on the Pirates early, and ultimately sunk them with an impressive 35-0 victory!
Homecoming festivities culminated with the Tropical Luau Homecoming dance on Saturday night.
