Watertown-Mayer and Mayer Lutheran High Schools are both celebrating homecoming this week, with homecoming football games set for Friday night. Watertown-Mayer will host Sibley East at 7 p.m., and Mayer Lutheran will host Norwood Young America at 7 p.m.
Both schools also held their coronation ceremonies on Monday night, when Joe Reinert and Leah Pysick were crowned King and Queen at Watertown-Mayer, and Cole Carnes and Ashlyn Hucky were crowned King and Queen and Mayer Lutheran.
Other homecoming activities still remain at each school. Watertown-Mayer will hold its powderpuff and bad boys volleyball games on Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m., followed by the annual bonfire.
The school’s homecoming parade will be Friday staring at Marketplace Foods at 4 p.m. The route will head north down Lewis Avenue, turn left on Maple Street and left on Angel Avenue, before turning right on State Street and heading past the primary school before finishing at the high school. The annual band tailgate party will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. outside the middle school. Tickets are $6 at the event. Inside the high school foyer at the top of the stairs, there will also be a public open house to honor this year’s two Athletics Hall of Fame inductees, Bill McDonald and Sue Morehouse Kawlewski.
At Mayer Lutheran, the annual pork chop dinner will once again be on Friday. The class floats will also parade around the field at halftime of the football game, as well as the Homecoming King and Queen.
