Homecoming week currently underway at Seguin High School

(Seguin) -- It's Homecoming Week at Seguin High School, and the community is encouraged to show off its Matador Spirit. It's a shortened week for students at SHS, because they are out of school on Thursday and Friday, but they still have a schedule packed with homecoming activities.

SHS Student Body President Lilly Blinder says that members of the student council have been planning these activities for weeks. She says they are excited about Homecoming 2018.

"We start planning really early, and it's really exciting for all of us to get all of the ideas flowing. We have the pep rally. We have the Fair Parade, which we are putting a homecoming float in this year. (We have the) football game and the dance. So there's a lot rolling here, but it's going to be good," Blinder.

Junior Class Vice-President Selena Gutierrez says they picked a theme that reflects on the past of SHS.

"The theme is Reflections of Gold, and it's kind of like a reflection on Seguin's past. Everything is going to be gold -- gold balloons and gold lights -- and it's reflecting on Seguin (High School's) past," said Gutierrez.

The community is invited to come to Thursday night's activities, including the big pep rally on Thursday night. Sophomore Class President Kamdyn Holt says one big change is that there will not be a Homecoming Parade hosted by the high school this year.

"We aren't having an actual homecoming parade this year. We are going to be a part of the Fair Parade due to all of the fair festivities. But we are going to have our annual Homecoming Pep Rally in Matador Stadium at 7 p.m. (on Thursday). There, we will have the crowning of princesses and duchesses for the sophomore, junior and freshman classes. The Mini-Mats are (also) going to be there and we are going to have the dance team, the band and the cheer team there. That's what's happening on Thursday. And then on Friday, that's when we are going to have our Homecoming Court float in the Fair Parade," said Holt.

In addition to the community activities, SHS students are encouraged to dress up and show off their spirit. Tuesday is Twin Day, so pairs of students are encouraged to dress alike, while Wednesday will be School Spirit Day and all students are encouraged to dress up in white, gold or black.

Community members are again encouraged to come to the pep rally at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Matador Stadium, and then line up along Austin Street Friday morning to watch those students who will be participating in the Guadalupe County Fair Parade. The parade gets underway at 10 a.m. Friday in downtown Seguin.

This year's Matador football game will feature a matchup between SHS and Austin Travis High School. The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Matador Stadium. The Homecoming Court will be announced during the game's halftime.
