The week of activities commemorating Homecoming at Trenton High School will be held Monday, September 16th through Friday, September 20th.
Students, faculty and personnel at all schools are encouraged to show their spirit by participating in the Spirit Week Activities.
The THS Student Council feels that school spirit began as early as Rissler for them, so they are encouraging all of the students and faculty at all of the schools to actively participate in carrying on in the spirit of Homecoming.
Many area businesses have agreed to allow Student Council to paint their windows to show support for the Trenton Bulldogs. A big thank you goes out to each of them for supporting our school.
