Columbus Community High School is having their homecoming festivities earlier than normal this year, but assistant principal and athletic director Tyler Hotz said it’s been a fun week with an overall positive vibe. This year they’ve done things a little differently by having the bulk of their homecoming activities on Friday, as opposed to spread throughout the week. Hotz said this was to allow teachers and students a sense of normalcy during the week without having to worry about homecoming events getting in the way of classes. The highlight for today’s activities is what Hotz called the Columbus Olympics, where the classes compete against each other in a variety of events. The annual parade is also today at 1 p.m. The homecoming king and queen will be announced at halftime of the football game against Wilton.
