bee.bmp Homecoming 2006 - Under the Sea


  • Selected as Homecoming theme at the Final Student Government meeting of 2005-2006 school year (May 2006)
  • "Under the Sea" beat out "Paris at Night," "Vegas Casino," and "Tropical Evening" as the 2006 theme
  • Props were ordered from Stumps on August 24th, arrived at NHS on September 19th
  • Homecoming was originally scheduled to take place with the game on October 13 (vs. Charter) and the dance October 14. Due to inservice day activities in the school on October 13th and with NHS being a SAT testing site on October 14th, Homecoming was moved to the previous weekend (October 6th for the game and October 7th for the dance).
  • Due to inclement weather on Friday, October 6th the PepFest was moved in-doors during 7th period and the underclass court was announced then instead of during the Homecoming Halftime Show. Float judging still took place at the game, with the winner announced during Halftime.
