The Monroe City High School (MCHS) will celebrate their football homecoming on September 24. This year’s Football Homecoming theme is “Summer, Winter, Spring, Fall; Monroe City Wins it All!” and will host the traditional Homecoming Parade Friday at 2 p.m., along with special festivities all week long.
The announcement of the Homecoming Royalty will be at halftime of the game. The candidates representing the senior class will be Emmalee Williams and Bo Patterson, along with Carly Youngblood and Josiah Talton. Juniors will be represented by Isabella Stupavsky and Landon Utterback. Sophomores will be represented by Ava Yutzy and Owen Fuemmeler. Freshmen will be represented by Kylee Kauble and Justin Levine.
MCHS began the week with students dressing to a different theme for each day of the week. High school students participated this week by showing off their school spirit with their imagination of specialty fashion, as they took part in different festivities throughout the week.
On Tuesday, the students attended school in duo style replicating their own impersonations. On Wednesday, students took a look in the past for Way Back Wednesday. Thursday will include each class demonstrating the different seasons with seniors dressing for Fall; juniors are to represent Winter; sophomores will prepare for the day as if it was Summer; and the freshmen will arrive ready for Spring. Friday will include the traditional Black and Gold Day representing Panther Pride.
Friday, September 24, 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 Ag Building from 5-7 p.m. Then the game will kick-off at 7 p.m., as the Panthers welcome the Palmyra Panthers to Title Town.
After the football game, students are invited to a Bonfire, which will include games, music and light concessions until 11:30 p.m.
