There will be a homecoming dance after the game on October 10th  in the courtyard. Everyone is invited, but this year, if you would like to bring a date, the girls will be asking the guys. Tickets will go on sale October 1st.  A professional DJ will be here so everyone come out for a fun night of food and dancing under the stars!

Homecoming t-shirts will be pre-sold from Wednesday, October 1st – Friday, October 3rd.  They will be comfort wear t-shirts and will cost $15 each.  We do not plan to order extras so be sure to see Mrs. Parson to order your homecoming t-shirt no later than October 3rd.

Our theme for homecoming this year is “Cage the Tigers”.  We want every club to participate in the parade this year.  There will be a contest for best entry.  The winner will be announced at the homecoming football game.  In order to ride or walk in the parade you must pick up and complete the parent permission form.  Forms can be picked up in Mrs. Knight’s room 1122.  You must have your form completed and returned to Mrs. Knight before October 7th.
