Shafter High School had their annual Homecoming Week last week, having numerous activities at school in addition to the festivities on Friday night at the football game.
The week began with several dress-up days the entire week.
Students were encouraged to dress up like their favorite Wizard of Oz character, keeping with the theme for this year's Homecoming, "There's No Place Like Home."
There were also a number of activities at lunch time, including skits, contests pitting each class against one another, and of course, the big rally on Friday.
The rally was filled with music, games and a bunch of other activities. Activity and Athletic Director Brian Feaster led his team of student body officers to plan a perfect and fun-filled week.
The week ended on Friday night, with each class performing a skit at halftime of the Shafter Generals football game. A new Homecoming king and queen also were crowned.
In a spirited contest, the Junior Class of 2025 won the skit competition. They were dressed up as different characters from the Wizard of Oz and danced their way to first place.
Homecoming King for this year is Alex Aguirre, and the Homecoming Queen is Ysbit Lopez. After the crowning of the king and queen, the Shafter High Generals put the cherry on top of the evening by closing out a 49-0 victory over the McFarland Cougars.
