AMBOY — Be our guest, at Amboy High School as we start preparations for Homecoming 2019 week, which is Sept. 15-21. The AHS Student Council is pleased to announce this year’s theme, which is based on popular Disney/PIxar movies. 

The Freshman Class has been assigned the movie “Toy Story” and the class color of yellow. Sophomores have been assigned “Cars” and the class color of orange. Juniors have been assigned “Finding Nemo” with the class color of blue, and Seniors have been assigned “Monsters Inc.” and the class color of green. 

The Student Council would also like to invite the Junior High School and Central School to join in on the fun and come up with movies and colors as well (Lion King, Aladdin, Jungle Book, etc). The student council would also like to encourage a float from each school to join in the parade.

Homecoming week kicks off with the powderpuff football tournament, held on Sunday, Sept. 15. The first game will be Seniors v. Freshmen, beginning at 4 p.m., followed by Sophomores v. Juniors at 4:45 p.m.. The championship game will follow at 5:30 p.m..

Classes and organizations will perform skits, and the 2019 Homecoming Court will be presented. The King and Queen will be crowned following the skits. 

The homecoming parade will be held on Friday, Sept 20, with a start time of 2:15 p.m. and lineup beginning at 1:45 p.m. at the high school. The parade will be following a different route this year and will end back at the high school parking lot after going past Central Elementary School, and the Amboy Junior High School. As always, the Homecoming planning committees are looking for entries to join in the parade and also to enter skits to perform on Skit Night.
