Spirit Galore!

This year’s theme for Homecoming was “Stripes of Chivalry.” During Homecoming Week, you were able to see spirited Tigers. Homecoming Week kicked off on Tuesday, October 11, 2011, with students expressing the theme of Medieval Day. Walking through the halls, you were able to see knights in shining armor, princes, princesses, and a jester here or there. On Wednesday, Tigers got wacky with mix n’ match clothing and wildly crazy hair. On Thursday, our students saw double as twins graced McKinley High School. “Lighting of the M” was held on Thursday night. The entire gym was filled with spirited and talented Tigers. The deep fried food was delicious and the entertainment was unforgettable. Excitement arose as the “M” was lit to get Tigers pumped up for the football game. On Friday, Tigers dressed in their Black & Gold spirit outfits. Some even painted their faces or doused themselves in glitter. The pep rally took the Tiger spirit to an all-time high. The class level spirit competition was truly inspiring as all the grade levels showed pride for their class. On Friday night, the Tigers showed their stripes of chivalry by defeating the Kalaheo Mustangs 40-0. The Homecoming Week proved to be victorious for the McKinley Tigers.
