Homecoming week kicks off on Sunday, September 9th! The high school students will have a wide variety of activities happening throughout the week. The event that impacts elementary students, middle school students and the entire community is the Homecoming parade and pep rally on Thursday, September 13th. The parade will start from Dooley Park and head north on Lincoln. Groups interested in participating in the parade may contact Shari Riley at email@example.com. Line-up for the parade will start at 5:30 and the parade will commence at 6:00. Entries for the parade will line up in Dooley Park (lining up double wide) or on Lincoln St. heading north. The parade will end in the front middle school parking lot. We are asking, that for the safety of all involved, ALL parade entries wait until they reach the front MS parking lot to unload or disperse. This is not only for the safety of our participants but also to help with traffic congestion. We are also asking to please only park in the unit office, high school or middle school (not the front) parking lots. Please no parking on the sides of the roads at the high school, baseball field or leading to the middle school. Floats and other parade entries will need to be able to get through those narrow roads. Immediately following the parade is the Battle of the Bands held in the high school commons. We will end the evening with a pep rally in the high school gym.
