Stay @ HomeComing Week
ENNIS SCHOOLS BOOSTS MORAL
Cars idled in park around the Ennis football stadium Friday night waiting for the school’s final Stay @Homecoming Week event.
The Ennis Booster Club organized a week to celebrate the Ennis School community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ennis students, parents, teachers, administration and staff participated in the events, while socially distanced at home. Participants sent in pictures and videos for the themed dress up days, Tik Tok challenges and porch pictures. The finale took place under Friday night lights.
“We needed a boost,” Ennis elementary teacher and Booster Club secretary Twyla Swanson said. “We felt the students needed a boost.”
Twos and zeros glowed orange on the scoreboard, 20:20 20 20 2 02 02 0, as dozens of cars looked down onto the dark field. When the clock struck 9 p.m., the stadium lights illuminated the vacant football field. The bleachers were equally as empty, but the atmosphere was loud.
Cheering and honking overtook the stillness, and continued minutes later down Main Street. Fireworks sparkled in the sky in clusters of pops. By 9:30 p.m., Ennis returned to its quiet state.
The Ennis Booster Club will be awarding participation gifts later in the week.
