Johnston High School will be holding their annual Battle of the Classes on Wednesday, Oct. 13. Attendees and competitors will fill the athletic complex. Students and faculty are waiting and planning in anticipation as the annual event did not occur last year due to COVID-19.
Nine boys and nine girls are selected from each class float committee to be on their class’s team. One of the most entertaining events is the “Saran Wrap” event, where one student from each class is wrapped in plastic wrap. They are then carried across the football field by some of the other students. The first team to make it across the field wins the event.
Points are tallied for each event. The class that earns the most points wins Battle of the Classes and will receive a trophy at the Homecoming Dance.
