The Monroe City High School (MCHS) will celebrate their football homecoming on October 2. Homecoming week is not only being celebrated with the traditional festivities, but MCHS students welcomed returning to regular schedules, after following the hybrid schedule for the past four weeks. This year’s Football Homecoming theme is Welcome to Title Town.
The announcement of the Homecoming Royalty will be at halftime of the game.
The candidates representing the senior class are Mackenzie McMurdo escorted by Kannon O’Bryan-Minor and Clara Minor escorted by Connor Pfaff. Juniors are represented by Kenzie Moss who is escorted by Deion White. Sophomores are represented by Brooklyn Fessenden escorted by Jackson Wheeler. Freshman are represented by Jacie Johnson escorted by Waylon DeGrave.
On Monday, MCHS began the week with students dressing to a different theme for each day of the week. High school students were seen showing their school spirit as they participated in the different festivities throughout the week.
On Monday, the students rolled out of bed and attended school in their pajamas for PJ Day. On Tuesday, students picked a classmate, dressing to resemble each other for Duo Day. On Wednesday, each class demonstrated a stereotype celebrating Clique Day: seniors dressed as jocks; juniors represented preppy; sophomores dressed as artsy; and the freshmen showed off being nerds. Thursday will bring all bets to the table dressing up for Vegas Day and Friday will be the traditional Black and Gold Day representing Panther Pride.
Friday, October 2, also brings more festivities to celebrate leading up to the game. At 1 p.m. there will be a pep assembly on the football field, followed by a Homecoming Parade at 2 p.m. Prior to the game, the FFA will host a Homecoming BBQ at the new Ag Building from 5-7 p.m. Then the game will kick-off at 7 p.m., as the Panthers welcome the Brookfield Bulldogs to Title Town.
