TRHS Homecoming 2020
Thunder Ridge students and staff had tons of fun during Homecoming week. Spirit Week dress-up days included: Monday- Twin or Disney Day, Tuesday- Decades or Nerd Day, Wednesday- Superhero/Villain or Fake Injury Day, Thursday- Pink Out or USA Day, Friday- Sports or Blue Out Day. Thursday night the traditional bonfire was held and Friday afternoon the community and TR elementary were present for the Parade/Pep Rally on Main Street. Following the pep rally everyone headed over to the football field for a game of Powder-puff football. The crowning ceremony was held at 6:30pm before the football game versus Rock Hills (Mankato). The Longhorns were bumped up and ready to win! They sent everyone home early scoring 54 to 8 over their opponent, ending the game at halftime. What a way to end an awesome week!
