Oak Ridge High School students take their school spirit to a higher level this week to celebrate Homecoming. The community is invited to celebrate with the Trojans at the Nov. 2 Homecoming Parade and the big game later the same day.

“I’m looking forward to everything being put together,” said Nicole Sciutto,  activity coordinator of the Associated Student Body Leadership class. “It will be great to see the final product.”

Friday’s Homecoming Parade, coordinated by the ASB class, will begin at 4 p.m. at the Harvard Way high school and weave through Stonegate Village. “We’re advertising to the elementary and middle schools,” Nicole said. “We hope to see a bunch of kids of all different ages. We want to get the whole community involved.”

Fellow activities coordinator Alexa Hill added, “We’re trying to keep the community in mind with the parade. We have candy to pass out the kids … and our floats have themes from popular Disney Pixar movies that kids will recognize.”

Fitting since Oak Ridge’s Homecoming theme is “Silver Screen Homecoming.”

The Homecoming football game against Jesuit begins with the junior varsity teams facing each other at 5 p.m.; varsity follows at 7:15. Homecoming royalty will be announced during the varisty game’s halftime.

“We hope to have many students and parents come to the game,” Alexa said.

“It would be great to have as many people to come as possible … and to be as spirited as possible,” Nicole added.

The on-campus Homecoming Spirit Days include Mix-It-Up Monday (wearing mismatched clothes), College Attire Tuesday, Wednesdays We Wear Pink, Throwback Thursday (dressing in styles popular in past decades) and Class Colors Friday. The Homecoming Dance is Saturday.

“We put so much work into it and it’s all for our community and classmates,” Nicole said. “We hope they enjoy it.”
