It’s an Outlaws Homecoming!

It is Homecoming Week for the Yuma Outlaws.
Homecoming Week events have been taking place all week at Yuma High School, and there is more yet to come.
The community is invited to participate in the bonfire that will start at 7 p.m. today, October 5, in the dirt parking lot at the sports complex. The former Wig-Wam is now called Homecoming Tailgate, which will be Friday from 4 to 6:30 p.m. in the YHS Commons during the Yuma-Burlington volleyball games.
The Senior Class will have a baked potato bar, Junior Class walking tacos, Sophomore Class a hot dog bar, Freshman Class a burger bar, and the National Honor Society will have homemade cheesecakes and pies.
Yuma’s football game with Burlington follows at 7 p.m.
The Yuma High School 2023 Homecoming King and Queen will be announced during halftime. The queen candidates are Ashley Ibanez, Caddis Robinson, Emma Rayl and Anna Chapman. The king candidates are Carson Lynch, Edwin Munoz, Bridger Lynch and Nathan Crossland.
The Homecoming Dance will be Saturday from 8 to 11 p.m. in the Commons.
There are dress-up themes each day this week. Today, October 5, it is “Country vs. Country Club” as students can either break out their boots and hats, or go all country club, such as sweaters and khakis.
Friday is Red and White Day, and everyone is encouraged to break out all of your red and white clothing. (Earlier in the week was Blue Collar Worker Day and Adam Sandler Day.)
Student activities included Casino Night this past Tuesday, and Class Volleyball on Wednesday. If reading this in time, the public can attend Class Volleyball in The Pit.
Students are having a Class Sidewalk Decorating Contest today, in front of the YHS Commons.
We here at Pioneer Headquarters always hope for a great Homecoming Week, but even more so this year as it is the first as the Outlaws!
