Drum Majorette Faith Anderson leads the Marching Indians down Main Street in the fall homecoming parade. This year, the band is marching to Led Zepplin’s Immigrant Song.
This year’s EA Fall Homecoming Theme for Tarkio students was “Happy Holidays, EA!” Each class picked a holiday and decorated windows, banners, and floats to go with that theme. The students had a fun time with it and did a fantastic job! The overall winners were the juniors (pictured at top with their Halloween float). They also won the window contest and float contest. The seniors (pictured above with their Christmas float) won the banner contest.
EA Booster Club members Beth Graves, Jackie Martin, and Mandy Smith threw out goodies.
We aren’t for sure who enjoys the homecoming parades more, those who watch or those who take part! Here are the “Easter bunnies” – the Tarkio 6th graders.
Nora Lundquist, Trysta Page, and Savannah Beckman were among the preschoolers throwing out candy (maybe that’s why they look so serious, no candy for them).

Tarkio Elementary students were pumped for the pep rally!
The egg on a spoon race was pretty difficult.
Gift wrapping a person is a lot of fun, except for maybe the person who is wrapped like a mummy. Jarrad Jamison (above) and Bresayda Jimenez (below) were good sports.
Halloween costume dress-up contest was a hoot!
Digging for gummy bears through whipped cream was a bit messy!
