Edina High School (EHS) will host Homecoming festivities for the week of October 19-23. Due to Covid19, we are unfortunately unable to have a Homecoming parade or a school dance this year. EHS Student Council (@EdinaStudCo), in collaboration with EHS Administration, are working creatively to keep as many other traditions happening for the students of EHS. Our theme this year is simply Hornet Pride.
Instead of a parade we are asking you to decorate your houses in green and white to show your hornet pride. Edina Student Council is also selling yard signs! Signs will be $10 a piece, and part of the proceeds will go to the Edina Student Council which supports multiple activities for the entire student body this school year. Pickup for the signs will be on Monday, October 19 at EHS Door 3 (EPAC) and Concord Elementary from 4-6 pm. To help determine the volume of the order, please fill out this form to reserve your sign: Order Yard Sign. Your order must be submitted by the end of Sunday October 11.
All in-person events are designed to abide by recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota Department of Education. Additionally, EVA learners, and the entire EHS Community, are encouraged to take part virtually. Additionally, we are asking everyone to join us in our dress-up days as we all celebrate Edina spirit and community pride. If you want to share photos with us of your family or student(s) celebrating our Homecoming, please use #EHSHoCo2020 on social media. We’ll be sharing them throughout the week!
