The pageantry and traditions of Homecoming Week are not only valued but also passed on from generation to generation. One such tradition is the Homecoming Court. It is the one school activity that is voted on by the student body and thus carries more weight than the others. The following photos were taken during the halftime game versus Hueneme High School.

Classroom Corner
FFA is a comprehensive program that includes opportunities for its members to practice public speaking and to develop leadership. An FFA activity that combines both is the Open/Closing event. Students practice their dialogues in AG classes and compete against other FFA programs during Open/Closing day.

Athletes in Action
Last week both the JV and Varsity Football teams dismantled their counterparts from Hueneme High School with a combination of punishing defense and a bruising running game. With the victory, the Varsity has moved into the top ten rankings of the Northern Division of the CIF SS. The boys in blue and white play during the Fall Break at home against a determined Rio Hondo High School team. It will also be Cancer Awareness Night and Fillmore Unified Night. All students K-8 get in free with a paid adult admission.

Here are some shots of the completed floats as they were being judged on the morning of the parade. The Senior Float was first followed closely by the freshmen float.

The Homecoming Dance was held last Saturday in the Fillmore High School Gym. By all accounts it was a big hit. There were over 300 students in attendance and they danced the night away. Several seniors remarked that this was the best dance they had been to in their four years at Fillmore High School.
