Riverbank High School will be “Roaring through the Decades” for Fall Homecoming Week 2021-22. This week students can celebrate homecoming and show their school spirit with dress days, lunch time activities, a rally and parade.

The pandemic has caused disruptions for students throughout the country for parts of the past two school years. With students back in school for the 2021-22 school year, the RHS administration and staff has tried to make the school year memorable and somewhat normal despite the challenges and protocols that are set in place.

RHS Royalty has been selected and the King Candidates are: Jackson Tigert, Marcos Ramirez, Freddie Anderson, Stanley Tran and Andrew Fletcher. The Queen candidates: are Ainsley Wood, Marissa Cruz, Juliet Ramirez, Natalia Calderon, and Kyle Rhodehouse. The King and Queen will be crowned during halftime at the Friday night football game on Sept. 24 where the Bruins will take on Modesto Christian at 7 p.m.; as long there are no cancellations due to COVID.

Students will receive spirit points throughout the week for their participation in the dress days and their creativity for the class floats for the parade. The parade will be held in downtown Riverbank on Friday at 2 p.m.

On Monday students showed their school spirit by dressing in ‘60s attire and participated in a friendly game of musical chairs during lunch that got a bit competitive but ended in nothing but smiles and laughter.

The lunch time activity on Tuesday was corn hole and students sported ‘70s gear.

As the students continue to roar through the decades there should be students in ‘80s apparel on campus on Wednesday and a game of Spike Ball played at lunch.

Thursday is ‘90s dress day and a balloon toss is scheduled for the lunch time activity with a rally later in the day to get the students roaring for homecoming. The Powder Puff game is slated for 7 p.m. on Thursday evening.

Homecoming festivities wrap on Friday with the parade and the football game that is sure to bring lasting memories to all in attendance.

Throughout Homecoming Week, students at Riverbank High School are participating in lunch time activities like musical chairs that they had on Monday. Here, the Homecoming King and Queen candidates engage in the friendly competition. VIRGINIA STILL/THE NEWS
