During the week of September 12, Clarkson Public Schools got hyped for the homecoming game and dance. through , the students dress-up days: was Hobo Day, was Pink Out for the volleyball game, was Frat Out (students dressed like college guys in fraternities), was Class Unity Day (each class had a certain color to dress, and was Patriot Pride.
Junior Ashlee Novotny had this to say about class unity day: “It was cool to see all the classes in their color. The hallway was like a rainbow.”
, the whole school gathered in the gym for a pep rally planned by seniors Cully Cerv and Shelby Paprocki. The students enjoyed a video from the second grade and a fall sports highlight video.
The homecoming queen candidates gave shoulder massages to the blindfolded king candidates. While the girls had them distracted, the boys’ little sisters came in and threw pans of whipped cream into their brothers’ faces.
At the end of the football game against Omaha Nation (which the Pats won 56 to 14), onlookers went on the field to form a walkway for the homecoming candidates: Cully Cerv, Shelby Paprocki, Emily Schnelle, Megan Venneman, MaGyver Brabec, Bradley Bunner, Paxten Indra, and Tanner Stanley. Bradley Bunner and Shelby Paprocki were named homecoming royalty.
