Hawks in Hollywood Shines Bright for Homecoming

The Homecoming Parade is one of the highlights of Homecoming week.

Nānākuli Hawks in Hollywood Homecoming is coming. Are you ready? To cheer? To laugh? To soar? But most of all to win? In the week of October 2 to 6,  all grade levels will compete to show who has the most school spirit in a variety of events, including spirit week, the parade, and the pep rally. Each event a class wins will get points towards winning the grand prize for the grade level, a trophy, money for the grade level, and bragging rights. 

Robin Kitsu, Student Activities Coordinator, said, “This year we still have the same activities such as the Homecoming Parade and the Pep Rally. The difference every year are the students who participate. The goal for each grade level is to win the Homecoming Overall Trophy and monetary prize. The competition consists of the Homecoming Spirit Week Daily Dress Up Days, the Marching Banner, the Marching Unit, Participants, Pep Rally Cheering Contest, and Lip Sync dance contest. There will also be a separate Pep Rally Banner contest for monetary prizes.”

But wait, how do you win these events? While you might be excited, you may be clueless as to what homecoming will be like.  Dezerae Magsayo, AP English Teacher, said, “To be honest I don’t know much about homecoming, but I’m excited.” 

The first way to gain points is to get as many people in your grade level to compete in the Homecoming Spirit Week Dress Up Days. The class that has the most students dressed in the theme for that day will win their grade level points for that day.

The second way to win points is in the Marching Banner contest for the Homecoming Parade. During the parade each grade level will have a banner and the banner that shows the most school spirit wins the contest and the points. 

Katelynn Nakata, 7th grader, is excited to help her class win homecoming, “For Homecoming, well I think it’s pretty exciting, we get to do a cheer, there is a parade.”

The Pep Rally brings two ways to earn points, with both the cheering contest, and the lip sync dance. The class who shows the most school spirit by cheering the loudest will take the points for cheer. The lip sync dance will be a fun display with whoever can do the better dance wins.

“The Homecoming game is the highlight as we get to watch our football teams play and the halftime ceremony where we introduce the Homecoming Court,” said Dani Jose, senior. 

The parade is on October 4 at 4 pm from Pua Avenue up Nānākuli Ave to NHIS. The Pep Rally and game against Moanalua is on October 6. The school will be on a special assembly bell schedule on that day.

Homecoming is almost here so get out there and show that Golden Hawk school spirit!
