Homecoming preview

Ellie Youngquist, Writer

Homecoming at the OHS is fast approaching and there are a few changes to the highly anticipated week, making this year one to remember. The theme this year is Rock ‘N Roll Revival.

The homecoming committee has been hard at work in their coordination of theme and dress-up days. Senior Camryn Bartz is a member of OHS Student Council who took part in the planning process. Bartz said, “It’s a different homecoming this year. We have some new dress-up days, not the same ones we’re used to. There are a lot of different ways you can dress for these, and we’ll see some new groups being represented.”
