Students show spirit on Homecoming Week
By Joe Craig
There’s one day out of the year in which children get to dress up in a variety of costumes, that night typically ends in sore toothaches, and headaches–however, high school students at PCHS have an entire week devoted to the changing of costumes.
Homecoming was the week of Sept. 28 to Oct. 2. During this week of activities the students are encouraged to show school spirit by being involved in the following activities:
Monday, the students headed out on the trail dressed in their Western attire.
Tuesday, they hit the sand in their tropical dress.
Wednesday, the students dressed in doubles during twin day.
Thursday, students get into the spirit for howling, dressing up in their costumes.
Friday, the students put on their red and white for Plainsmen Day.
Activities at lunchtime include:
Monday, students had a tug-of-war for those who wanted to participate.
Tuesday, the students had a marshmallow-eating contest. Wednesday was the watermelon drop and students guessed how many seeds were left in the circle after the watermelon was dropped from the roof of the school.
Thursday is the jersey auction at lunch with the proceeds going to a local charity.
On Friday, students will take part in the balloon toss.
The parade will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Friday. The route will begin at the high school then go to Central Avenue. Once on Central, south to First Street, right on First Street, right on Lincoln, left on 6th.
The pep rally will begin at 2 p.m. at Haenfler Field.
Dismissal will be at 2:30 p.m. that afternoon.
The football team will host Bayard at 7 p.m. The crowning of royalty will be at the conclusion of the game.
The Homecoming dance will take place on Saturday at the high school.
