Festivities kicked off Monday with an Open House at the Palisade Attendance Center. School officials estimated 125 people attended the event. Community members toured the school, visited with faculty and enjoyed a hot dog supper provided by the school.
Another Open House was held Thursday at the Wauneta Attendance Center in conjunction with the Homecoming pep rally. Following a meal served by the Bronco Boosters, the pep rally kicked off. Teachers, parents, cheerleaders, volleyball team and football team performed for the crowd.
Organizers were thrilled with the communities response to the events.
Superintendent Randy Geier said he was grateful for the awesome turnout. Both Geier and school board president Jon Anderjaska said the events illustrated what great parents, faculty and community support the school has.
Anderjaska said “this shows that we have two great communities with a lot of pride in their school.”
Geier agreed, saying, the turnout demonstrates “how much the communities care about the students in the school district.”
Both complimented the staff and teachers on all the work they did to make the Open Houses successes.
Friday afternoon students and fans gathered in downtown Wauneta for another pep rally before the football and JV volleyball games against Maywood. Both teams picked up victories before the dance which was held in the gym lobby.
Royalty was announced following the football game. Alondra Almanza was second attendant and Charlotte Pitts was first attendant. Tayler Nordhausen was crowned queen. Connor Kayton and Weylin Davis tied for attendents. Logan Bischoff was crowned king. Crown bearers were Nate Blackman, son of Jared and Missy Blackman, and Hannah Smith, daughter of Nolan and Callie Smith.
