Homecoming week 2015 is officially over! Many different clubs and organizations came together to make Homecoming fun for the whole community.
The FHS Student Council planned a Disney inspired Spirit Week for the student body. Hallways were decorated, dance tickets sold, students braved the weather for the annual tailgate, the Falcons crushed the Cardinals, and the Homecoming dance was a success!
Students stayed after school on Thursday to decorate their hallways. Seniors walked away with the win for best hallway!
On Thursday evening, The Firelands Athletic Booster Club held its annual tail gate! Approximately 300 people enjoyed the evening, which is always highlighted by the parade of floats, the Mighty Falcon Marching Band, and the jersey auction.
FHS Pep Rally:
The tradition continued with a student led Pep Rally! The MFMB kicked it off by performing as they walked through the hallways. Athletes, Cheerleaders, and Student Council got the student body pumped up for the big game. The Homecoming Court was announced and as always, students enjoyed the afternoon!
