Although it hardly seems possible, Hettinger students have their first full week of school under their belts, and are adjusting to the early hours of school. As August finishes up, there are several things happening early in September, including the first day off, Sept. 2, for Labor Day.

Homecoming Week, which will begin Sept. 9. and wrap up with volleyball team hosting Beulah on Thursday, Sept 12 and the football team hosing Heart River on Friday at 7 p.m.

The Hettinger Hall of Fame will also have inductions on Friday of homecoming week, said principal Kevin Morast. This year the 1996 state championship wrestling team will be inducted, along with Class of 2001 wrestler Josh Epperly and Randy Burwick, coach of both the Hettinger wrestling and football teams.

The annual chili supper will begin at 4:30 pm. Along with the annual Drive for Kids.

“Each licensed driver over the age of 18 earns our school $10 by simply driving a vehicle and filling out a short survey,” said elementary principal Lyn Hendry.

This money supports the Elementary Art Fund, which pays for Missoula Children’s Theatre, Artist in Residence, the Elementary Math Team and other programs for the students.

RZ Motors donates the vehicle and a minimum of 100 driver is needed to be able to do it again next year, so everyone is encouraged to be sure and take a quick drive.

Dress up days are a fun part of homecoming and they are as follows: Monday, camouflage; Tuesday, rainbow colors; Wednesday, Favorite sports jersey; Thursday, capes and shades; Friday, Night Hawks T-shirts-colors.
