Warrior Fest was on again this year after missing last fall because of COVID-19. On Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. sports teams, clubs, school and other community organizations set up their booths starting at the high school gymnasium and ended at the entrance of the stadium. 

With Warrior Fest getting canceled last fall. Students from the high school, middle schools and elementary schools came to either work in a booth or walk around and participate in the activities or sales that each booth had. Even parents or community members came to see all the different booths. 

One of the most popular booths was the senior Dunk Tank. Many students and teachers would volunteer to sit in the tank while other students would try to dunk their classmates, teachers or administrators. Warrior Fest is a way to get people from all over the community to come and support different programs within the district.

“It gets people together and helps fundraise for the school,” said junior Katie Matthews. 

With the homecoming football game happening after Warrior Fest, many students stayed to support the football team and marching band as well. 

“It is a really good way of spreading school spirit,” said the Head Football Coach, Keith Olsommer. “It [Warrior Fest] got more students involved.”
