The Homecoming Parade will be on October 21st at 10am! If you would like to join us for the fun, please see the attached map to find out where the best places to park are. You will not be able to park at the school. Immediately after the parade, we will move to our Homecoming Pep Rally on the field behind the High School.
If you are planning on having your student wear a Mum they may do so on Thursday ONLY. If the mum becomes a distraction or a hazard we will ask the student to remove it until after school hours. Please be mindful of this as you are making these mums.
Last but not least, the Homecoming dance is Saturday, October 23rd from 7-9pm. Tickets have been on sale and will continue to be on sale before school and during B/C Lunch. Tickets are $15. The last day to get them at this price will be Friday during C Lunch. They will become $25 at the door the day of the dance if your student has not already purchased a ticket.
