A definitive week in the high school experience, the annual Homecoming celebration. Spanning over Sept. 18-22, the PHS Student Council intends to deliver six days of familiar and revamped events for all students, which is conveyed in this preview. 


Monday 9/18 – Dress As Your Grade

Buff Puff @ Homesteader 7PM 

Taking place at Homesteader Park, student council executive board representatives seniors Keegan Hicswa and Seeger Wormald organized Buff Puff, this year opening the doors to co-ed teams, instead of the traditional boy players and girl cheerleaders. The forms are due in the office by Thursday, 9/14 so make sure to assemble the team for this night of volleyball under the park lights. 


Tuesday 9/19 – Country vs. Country Club *Hat Day*

Movie Night Tangled @ Behind Panther Stadium 8PM

After selection among the student body, the general consensus was that the desired movie to watch was the Disney classic Tangled. Following the plot of a young girl Rapunzel with magical hair attempting to find out what is so special about the lights that appear every year on her birthday, this 1 hour and 40-minute film takes the watchers on a journey as Rapunzel finds new friends and a potential love interest along the way of discovering the lights.  


Wednesday 9/20 – Wednesdays We Wear Pink/Barbie & Ken Day 

Cornhole Tournament @Homesteader Bighorn Softball Field 7PM

Since the Parent Group opted to move the annual Homecoming Olympics a week prior due to the wanting to allow the largest amount of students to participate, the Homecoming Week looks a little different for Wednesday night. Involving singles and doubles competitors, the cornhole tournament and ice cream social will be the first of its kind. Despite its inaugural debut, the turnout is anticipated to be just as great compared to last year’s Olympics. 


Thursday 9/21 – BBQ Dads vs. Soccer Moms *Hat Day*

Tailgate & Volleyball Games VS Cody @PHS Gym 4PM, 5 PM, 6PM

For the second home game of the season, the Lady Panthers freshman, JV, and varsity teams face off against rival Cody Fillies. A tailgate will be provided for the game in the side entrance of the school, where there will be hotdogs, chips, and drinks. 


Friday 9/22 – Panther Pride: Orange & Black 

Parade at 1:15

Football Game VS Green River @PHS 6PM

One of the most eventful days, Friday is comprised of the pep rally from cheerleaders, an assembly put on by the Student Council, and the local parade of elementary, middle, and high schoolers. With the concept of Family Feud, teachers and students will go against each other for the title of the winner in front of the entire school. Additionally, after the assembly and the rest of the school day, the Homecoming Parade will take place in downtown Powell at 1:15 where sports teams, clubs, and activities will represent themselves, as well as the voted Royalty of PHS. And finally, there will be the football game at 6 PM against the Green River Wolves, where the Student Section will be filled with ‘Panther Pride Orange & Black’. 


Saturday 9/23

Homecoming Semi-Formal Dance “At Last I See The Light” @PHS Commons (8-11 PM)

New to this year, the dance will be a semi-formal occasion for exclusively Powell High School students, and the theme goes hand in hand with the Tangled movie. Hoping to provide a different opportunity for pupils, Student Council members and advisors anticipate that the formal dance will be one to remember, especially when compared to years past informal dances, or lack thereof due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Emma Johnson, as much as she tries to deny it, is in her senior year of high school but despite it all, she happily is a third-year returning member to the Prowl serving as the Editor-in-Chief. When she isn’t running around with a camera or frantically attempting to color-code her dynamic schedule, Emma can be pretty much exclusively found writing debate cases in the library, listening to bass-boosted music behind the choir room, or embodying the word juxtaposition, being an avid lover of sleep but also an having been diagnosed as an insomniac.  Being heavily involved in extracurriculars and dedicated to the high school, especially as Student Body Co-President, Emma cherishes any free time she has to spare so in those rare moments, she loves to watch Jeopardy with her family, listening to vinyl on her record player (she’s a major Swiftie but has an eclectic taste), or compile Pinterest boards for all of the aesthetics that she knows aren’t feasible but still fun to dream about.  “Emma is one of the most talented people I have ever met in my life,” former Editor In Chief Gabby Paterson said. “I’m convinced she could do anything. She can probably even juggle chainsaws if she put her mind to it.”
