Last week was a great fun week for the staff and students of Mora Schools. They had many different activities during their “Spirit Week.” The students dressed up and got points for their class.
Monday was Pajama, hip hop or ‘90s day; Tuesday was Western or Crazy hair day.
Wednesday was Old day or Baby day. On Thursday, there was a pep rally at 1 p.m. and a talent show for the court candidates at 6 p.m. Thursday was Toga day or hippie day.
It was announced at the game that the seniors got the most points.
Thursday was a very busy day; at 2 p.m. the homecoming parade took place. It was a very well-attended long parade with the floats, fire trucks and different organizations taking part.
The senior class was the first-place winner of the floats.
The basketball games against Pecos began at 4 p.m. with the girls’ junior varsity playing in the elementary gym while the boy’s junior varsity played in the high school gym. At 5:30 p.m., the girls’ varsity team played in the high school gym with a score of Mora 67 and Pecos 38. After their game, the boys’ varsity played and did not win but played well in a good game. Their score was Mora 64 and Pecos 75.
At the game, the royal court presented itself, and Alonzo Chavez and Chantel Rivera were crowned homecoming king and queen. The royal court also included Prince Louis Montoya, Princess Victoria Lujan.Count Derrick Bustos, Countess Julie Herrera, Duke Isaiah Cordova and Duchess Omnica Pino.
Thus ended another happy homecoming at Mora High School.
Apology for error
I wish to apologize to the Martinez family for a mistake I made in last week’s article about the fire.
I was not thinking straight and gave a brother’s name as one who had the fire and lost his home and possessions. It was not Manuel but Patrick Martinez who lost his home and possessions in the fire that previous Friday morning.
