The Student Council’s carnival-themed Homecoming Week 2016 began Monday, Oct. 3. While it might not have been the traditional high striker strength test found at many fairs, students took turns smashing rotted fruit in their own variation of the popular attraction on Friday. Check below for more pictures from this week’s lunchtime activities.
