To start the week of Homecoming, Monday was Homecoming Olympics. 92 teams and 100+ staff sponsors participated in events such as beach race, crab walk, frozen t-shirt, tie game, and tug-a-war. Everyone worked together and had a great time but the winning team was Los Alagatos.

With the students excitement the week carried on till Wednesday which was Road To Reality. A large group of students and members of the community got together and put a project together to show students the consequences of drinking and driving. A lot of students, parents, activities and sports teams were in attendance.
