SPHS students showed school spirit and supported clubs at the annual Homecoming assembly and picnic on Friday, Nov. 1. ASB coordinated dress up days and lunchtime activities throughout the week to promote Friday’s festivities where students set up booths along the Tiger Patio and softball field for the Homecoming picnic, selling various snacks and drinks to fundraise for their clubs.
Commissioner of Assemblies and senior Evan Kowal led the day’s assembly and activities, opening the assembly with a performance by the student band Perespera. Commissioner of Spirit and senior Candy Wu also introduced the Royal Tiger Homecoming Court. The court members answered questions in front of the student body.
