Homecoming Week a big success
Pony Pride was on full display during Homecoming Week! The week kicked off with businesses across the district showing their Stillwater spirit by having students decorate their windows with artwork. Stillwater Area High School students had a pep fest outside with music from the pep band, a performance by the dance line and dance offs of the Homecoming candidates. It even included a hotdog eating contest that pitted Principal Bach against Ponies Football players.
The event culminated with the crowning of the Homecoming Royalty. Congratulations to King Dallas Denning and Queen Veda Roeske!
On Friday, it seemed the whole community was dressed in red and black. Thousands of kids and adults turned out for an afternoon of pre-game fun and food at the 4th annual Pony Homecoming Carnival. They bounced on inflatables, played games, and posed for selfies with Big Red. The Ponies Football team capped off the night beating Osseo 42-20.
Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers who made the carnival possible!
