Throughout the years RHS has had a slight problem with high school students simply breaking the rules for homecoming. In the past we have had students push the dress code on "Gender Bender Day," and a couple of students strapping Confederate flags on the back of their trucks on “‘Mercia Day". Until this year, our school as a whole showed their school spirit, not only by dressing up, but by going to both the Football and Volleyball games to supporting them.
Dude Volleyball is how we kicked off our Homecoming week at RHS. We had a handful of guys from each grade, freshman to seniors, participate. The games started at 7:00 pm and ended around 9:30 with the junior boys coming out on top. One thing that was great about that was members from the girls's volleyball team actually coached the boy volleyball teams.
Our theme for Tuesday was "USA All The Way." For being the beginning of the week we had quite a bit of students who participated, some students went all out wearing tutos, face paint, and even a younger classmate with hot dog suit. Not only did the students, dress up for Homecoming, but the teachers as well. All grades dressed appropriate and respectable, unlike previous years at RHS.
Wednesday, our school theme was "American Hero Day." On this day we had plenty of firefighters, policemen, and soldiers, along with a crazy amount of girls dressing up as nurses. Towards the end of the night we had girls Powder-puff Football, students from freshman to seniors participated. The girl’s football teams were coached by senior and junior football players. The football game started at 7:00 pm and ended around 9:00 with the freshmen a junior team winning.
When Thursday rolled around our theme was "Red, White, and Blue Day." The boys were assigned the color red, girls with the color blue, and teachers with the color white. On this day, many students and teachers participated. At 4:15 pm there was a home volleyball game against the Harlowton Engineers. Sadly, our Varsity Panthers were defeated, but the JV girls came out and beat them. The excitement didn’t end there, afterward a bonfire was put on by the school, which was a big hit.
Finally the big day came, Friday. The day started off with theme being "Maroon and White Day." Just like any other year we had our annual parade with the crowning of the Homecoming king and queen, Kyle Kinn and Saydee Wolff. At 7:00 pm the football game started against the Red Lodge Rams. The game ended around 9:30 with the Roundup Panthers with the "W." All the fun didn't end there, afterwards was the big Homecoming dance.
