As homecoming week gets underway, Newton students are hard at preparing their homecoming floats. Each class decorates its own float, with the class whose float is judged to be the best gaining bragging rights over their peers for the rest of the year. Float building takes place in secret, with teams of students hard at work gluing, painting and stapling in order to transform ordinary trailers into extraordinary artwork. Students began work on the floats Monday night after school, and work will continue, with students hustling to finish last minute details before Thursday’s parade.

The annual Homecoming parade will start at 6 p.m. Thursday in the high school parking lot, and will conclude with a pep rally on the square in Newton.
