9/19/2013 Homecoming is next week; pep rally, bon fire, football!

It is that time of year again. School has started, the leaves are changing, and homecoming weekend draws ever closer. Homecoming will be even more magical this year with the theme surrounding "Harry Potter."

As usual, homecoming events are scattered all across the days that approach the "Wizard’s Yule Ball." Beginning with Monday, September 23, Bobcat students are encouraged to attend classes in their pajamas for Pajama Day.

The pep rally will also be on Monday, and will be held during advisory.

The Spirit Squad is in charge of all games and recreation. During the pep rally the homecoming royalty will be announced, though the new king and queen won’t be crowned until the bonfire. Though, at the rally the royalty are required to dress up. The queen is scheduled to make a dress for the king, which he will display on a cat walk.

On Tuesday, September 24, students are asked to pick a friend and dress as twins for Twin Day. Brave Heart Day lands on Wednesday, September 25.

On Thursday, September 26, everyone must be seen in school colors to celebrate Blue and Gold Day.

On Friday, September 27, the Powder Puff game will be battled out at 3 p.m. The PTSO Tailgate will last between 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Peach Fuzz Volleyball will be played at 6:30 p.m.

Following the volleyball game, the bonfire will begin.

At the bonfire, the Spirit Squad will be in charge, the coaches will say a few words, and the homecoming royalty will be crowned. There will be limbo, possibly a dunk tank, a teacher pie-in-the-face fundraiser, marshmallow roasting, and a water balloon catch.

On Saturday, September 28, the homecoming parade will begin at 10 a.m. The order of floats will go as follows: freshman, sophomore, junior, senior.

The football game will begin at 1 p.m. against John Mall High School in Walsenburg. Volleyball will start at 4 p.m.

Finally, the dance is set to begin at 9 p.m. and go until midnight. It will be held at the school.
