Regina Hosts Games During Lunch to Prepare for Hoco

Students flip bottles as Dr. Regina commentates in today’s competition.

To prepare students for the upcoming Homecoming dance this Saturday, Sept. 23, Freshman  Principal Dr. Richard Regina is hosting a variety of games in every lunch shift during the week. 

“It gives kids a chance who normally wouldn’t jump out and do something to have the stage,” Dr. Regina said.

Dr. Regina said these games can get students outside of their comfort zone and even showcase their skills in front of the school. These games have ranged from eating an ice cream sandwich as quickly as possible on Monday and holding a plank longer than the other competitors on Tuesday to landing as many water bottle flips as possible on Wednesday and a dance-off on Friday. Thursday will feature Trivia Thursday as normal.

They’re just a way to remind students to have fun during Homecoming week,

— Dr. Rick Regina

The winners of each lunch game will be allowed to participate in the pep rally on Friday, Dr. Regina said. 

“They’re just a way to remind students to have fun during Homecoming week,” Dr. Regina said.

Dr. Regina said he enjoys hosting the competitions, but his favorite in particular was Tuesday’s planking competition. 

“It was awesome. The kids and staff all got into it,” Dr. Regina said. “That’s always what I want to see.”

Ethan Lenahan, junior, won the Wednesday water bottle flipping contest in fourth lunch, and said he appreciated the competition.

I think they’ve done a good job reminding people of Homecoming,

— Ethan Lenahan

“I think they’ve done a good job reminding people of Homecoming,” Lenahan said. 

Lenahan said the games increase anticipation for the upcoming dance. 

Anatoli Beyene, senior, said he enjoyed Wednesday’s contest as well.

“I’d like to play again,” Beyene said. “I thought I would be pretty scared and embarrassed to play, but while I kind of was, it was fun to do water bottle flips up on stage.”

Beyene also said he encourages other students to take part in this week’s lunch contests. He said they not only help excite students for Homecoming, but can also build confidence during the beginning of the school year. 

“Just raise your hand and play a game,” he said.
