Lowry’s kids will be busy next week – Homecoming is here once again and the school has activities planned for each day. Between Oct. 2 and Oct. 7, the school will host Powder Puff football and He-Man Volleyball, in addition to their scheduled sports games. Throughout the week, there will be Disney and Pixar-themed “dress-up days” and student leadership will hold lunchtime activities. The week will culminate in the Homecoming Dance on Saturday night.
The Homecoming football game will be held Friday night, against the Dayton High School Dust Devils. The freshman Buckaroos will play at 4:30 p.m. and the Varsity game will be held at 7 p.m. The last two games Lowry played against Dayton, in 2015 and 2016, were both victories for the Buckaroos.
