- Grant Community High School
Our carnival-themed Homecoming week is approaching quickly! It’s a week jam-packed with dress-up days and events, during and after school. Hopefully, everyone can join in and show their Bulldog spirit between September 26th and October 1st!
The week will kick off on Monday with “You’re Feeling Very Sleepy.” Students are encouraged to wear their best and comfiest PJs to school. Monday morning from 7:40-9:25 AM, seniors will be out in the community painting windows of local businesses. After school there are a lot of events students can participate in! Powderpuff players, junior and seniors, will have practice from 3:30-5:45 PM.
Tuesday is inspired by one of the more exciting parts of a carnival - lion taming! With the theme of “Our Pride Can’t be Tamed,” students should sport their favorite animal print. Powderpuff will practice from 3:30-5:45 PM. Today is also the last day for Seniors to vote for Homecoming Royalty!
Wednesday is all about expressing your individuality with “Little Miss/Little Mister.” Students should show off their personality while adhering to the school dress code. When classes are done, students are welcome to join us for our annual Block Party! Our Block Party will take place between 4:30-6:30 PM outside the fieldhouse. This event is free to students and food, games, and face painting will be available. Following the Block Party, we will cheer on the Juniors and Seniors as they take the field for Powderpuff. The Powderpuff game will run from 7:00-9:00 PM, so make sure you’re there cheering on the Juniors and Seniors! The gate to the game opens at 6:30 PM and tickets are $3.
On Thursday, pair up with your bestie for “Seeing Double”! Put together a matching outfit, hair style, and more for our twin day.Class/activity window painting will finalize their murals after school.
And of course, Friday is all about showing off what makes up “Big Top Bulldogs”! Wear as much spirit wear as you can! There will be a pep assembly during school to get everyone pumped up for the football games that night! The Homecoming Court will be announced before the Varsity game. Freshmen play at 5:00 PM and the Varsity game kicks off at 7:15 PM.
The fun doesn’t stop there! Our Homecoming parade starts at 9:00 AM on Saturday for the whole community to watch. If you would like to be in the parade, please click here for Parade Entry Form.
