Hear the "BULLDAWG JAM" before the Game

The “Bulldawg Jam” takes place before every Elida home football game @ 6:00 in the Fieldhouse. At the “Bulldawg Jam” you’ll enjoy all the pregame music, a sneak peak of the halftime show, an exhilarating percussion show and maybe even some of your EHS Marching band favorites. The performance will conclude by 6:30, plenty of time for you to get to Kraft Stadium to enjoy another Elida win!!

Helping those in need at Homecoming

We're looking forward to the Homecoming Game. It is also a chance for us to support those in need. There are two important opportunities for you to consider to help: Todd Elwer, Head of Maintenance at Elida, was in a serious automobile accident on Saturday night. The cheerleaders will be collecting monetary donations during half-time that will be given to his wife to help with transportation to Columbus as they have 4 young children at home and help with hotel accommodations and meals. We'll collect at the concession windows as well. Please keep Todd and his entire family in your prayers. Also, The Basement Doctor will be at the game collecting canned food and/or monetary donations for the Mid Ohio Food Bank. Bring your items for a chance to spin their wheel. Thank you..Elida Spirit is Generosity.
