Chiefland High School will be celebrating Homecoming the week of Oct. 29-Nov. 2. This year’s theme is “Get in the Game,” which was selected by the CHS Senate and activities around campus will be centered around board games.
The entire week is a dedicated Spirit Week, with a new theme for students each day. The week begins on the 29th with “Twister Day.” Tuesday is Trivial Pursuit Day, followed by “Guess Who? Day,” then “Bingo Day” and Friday is “Spirit Day.”
To go along with the dress-up days, classes will participate in a “Deck the Halls” contest with school spirit items. Classes and clubs will work in the evenings to ready their floats for the homecoming parade, and spend many hours writing and rehearsing skits for Pow Wow.
The Pow Wow will be on Thursday, Nov. 1, in the CHS auditorium at 6:30 p.m. The doors will be open for seating at 6 and admission will be $5 per person. The event will consist of skits from each class and club in the school all tied together by the homecoming theme, introduction of the Queen Court, Attendants and Club Sweethearts. It will culminate with the crowning of the 2012 Homecoming King and Prince.
The week will conclude on Friday, Nov. 2, with the homecoming parade and football game. The parade line up will begin at 2 p.m. and the parade starts at 3:30 p.m. The route will be from Chiefland High School, south on U.S. Highway 19 to the Train Depot. Any group or individual interested in being a part of the homecoming parade should contact SGA advisor, Kelly Varnes, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an application. All applications must be received no later than Tuesday, Oct. 30.
The fighting Chiefland Indians will take on the enemy tribe the Baldwin Indians Friday evening, with a 7:30 kick-off. During half-time festivities, the 2012 Homecoming Queen and Princess will be crowned.
The CHS Student Government Association encourages the entire Chiefland community and Alumni to come out and support the Chiefland Indians — remember show your CHS pride by wearing blue and gold.
