Student Council Presents, “Dreaming in Gold”
September 15, 2021
It has been almost two years since the last “normal” homecoming that Liberty students saw. Last year’s homecoming festivities were sure to raise morale amongst the students, but still reminded them of what they were missing out on. But this year, the student council is ready to bring their “A-game.” Presenting, “Dreaming in Gold: Homecoming 2021”.
The entire week of Sept. 27 to Oct. 1 will be filled with Hollywood-inspired activities and spirit, and the homecoming dance will be modeled to look like Liberty’s very own award show. Below is all the information you need about this year’s homecoming week.

Tailgate (10/1 @6 p.m.):
The tailgate is a great way to get hyped for the game and have some fun before all of the festivities happen. Right before the game at 6 p.m., students can come out to the tailgate on the football field parking lot to enjoy games like corn hole and washers, food and drinks, and fun with friends.
Game (10/1 @7 p.m.):
Liberty’s varsity football team will be playing Washington High School. So far this season, Washington has had 1 loss and 2 wins. But it is important to note that both wins have been very close, so the Eagles definitely have a chance to win this game. The stands will be packed with students in the “Red Out” theme, as they cheer on the Eagles to their hopeful victory.
Homecoming Parade (10/2 @9:30 a.m.):
Each year, all Wentzville high schools participate in a district-wide homecoming parade. Though it is always at Holt High School, the school in charge of organizing rotates each year. Timberland is hosting the parade this year, which will also be the first parade with four high schools. North Point’s activities (sports and clubs) hope to join in on the tradition on Saturday, Oct. 2. Come out to Holt at 9:30 a.m. to watch the parade and get in the spirit of homecoming!
The homecoming dance will take place on the football field, to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 while also continuing the tradition of the dance. There will be concessions available for students to buy, as well as free water. Administration has made the decision to ban high heels and is encouraging students to bring more comfortable shoes to wear on the turf dance floor. To bring non-Liberty students, you must fill out the guest form, which can be found in the main office and at the ticket sales table.
Mr. Wheeler will be the DJ, playing a student-curated playlist.
