From October 1st through the 6th Skutt Catholic celebrated homecoming week. To start the week off, Mass was held in the gym on Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday evening student council hosted their annual “Mr. SkyHawk” pageant. Seniors Thomas Baumert, Reilly Kirkpatrick, Jacob Legliter, and Eric Melrose participated. Leg liter was crowned “Mr. SkyHawk,” and Eric Melrose received the “Mr. Congeniality” award. Community Involvement Day fell into homecoming week this year, giving the students a way to give back on Wednesday. Students from Skutt catholic visited over 60 different sites on that day. The Pep Rally occurred on Friday, immediately followed by the Powder Puff football game. At the Pep Rally the cheer and dance teams performed routines, and the homecoming court was brought out, along with some activities for the court to participate in. The class of 2019 senior girls won the Powder Puff football game for the second year in a row. Friday evening Student Council members decorated the entryway, commons, stage, and hallways for homecoming.

After community involvement day, students meet back in gym to reflect.
