Hettinger High School alumni are also invited for a night of fun to celebrate Night Hawk pride.
Starting Monday, Oct. 2, all students will have dress up days until Friday, Oct. 6. For grades seventh through seniors, Monday is extreme weather day, Tuesday is grade versus grade day where seniors are athletes, juniors are mathletes, sophomores are rappers, freshmen are rock-ers, eighth graders are business people, and seventh graders are hobos.
Continuing the week on Wednesday is parents in high school day, Thursday is fake an injury day, and Friday is Night Hawk day. For elementary students the dress up days are, on Monday is crayon day (wear as many colors as you can), Tuesday is tie and jewelry day, Wednesday is patriotic day, Thursday is shorts and funky socks day, and Friday is Night Hawk day. There will also be door decorations and posters being made by each grade.
On Friday, Oct. 6 there will be a parade with grades 7-12 showing off their circus or Night Hawk themed floats, elementary students walking, and local businesses will also be showing their Night Hawk spirit. Line up begins at 12:30 p.m. by the pool doors and will go up north on Main Street. All elementary students will stop at Centennial Square and back up to the school while everyone else will continue up the Highway to seventh street north.
After the parade, students will gather in the big gym for the pep rally. Grades 7-12 will get to stay and start competitive games such as lip sync, tug-of-war, football toss, food competitions, and more. There will be judges to judge each event and give each grade points on how well they did in each event. The points will then be tallied up and the class with the most points win.

On Thursday, Oct. 5, Night Hawk volleyball will go up against the Glen Ullin/ Heb-ron Bearcats at Scranton High School.
