Douglas High School is rolling out the red carpet during the winter homecoming with a Douglas Choice Award theme.

On Tuesday, students attended a Tiger style “Grammys in Jammies” pep rally where they viewed a dance performance by the 23 homecoming king and queen nominees and a teacher dance off.

Today, Red Carpet Wednesday brought fancy attire to the school as students dressed up to strut the campus.

Thursday is ESPY’s day where students are encouraged to wear their favorite sports uniform or team shirt. They will also gather in the gymnasium to listen to Mike Smith Live, a professional and motivational speaker from Imperial, Nebraska who works with and encourages youth to pursue their passions and live out their dreams.

Friday is the Douglas versus Galena High School basketball games beginning at 5:15 p.m. During the games the homecoming king and queens from each grade will be announced.
