The Chase County Longhorns and their supporters are getting ready for 2009 Homecoming.
Things will kick off this Sunday, Oct. 4, when students and patrons are being asked to decorate the school beginning at 1:30 p.m.
High school guidance counselor Marcie Yaw said everyone is welcome to help on Sunday. The decorating will be inside the school. No whitewash will be used on the sidewalk this year, she noted.
Homecoming week kicks off for students Monday with a week of wacky dressing.
Monday is pajama day; Tuesday is country day; Wednesday is “fake an injury” day; Thursday is group day, when students can dress as groups of anything; and Friday is crazy black and orange day.
A pep rally will be held in the Longhorn gym next Friday, Oct. 9, at 2:50 p.m. Cheerleaders and the band will lead students and the public in a spirit program.
The Longhorn football team will meet Bridgeport High School that evening in Imperial with a 7 p.m. football game. The Homecoming king and queen will be crowned during halftime festivities.
Immediately following the game, the Homecoming dance will be held at the school until midnight. Complete Music of Kearney will provide music.
Also during the dance, the king, queen and other candidates will again be recognized.
Former cheerleaders invited
to cheer at football game
The current CCS cheerleaders are inviting all former Longhorn cheerleaders to perform a short cheer with them at halftime of the homecoming football game on Oct. 9.
Sponsor Lorain Vires is asking anyone planning to cheer to let her know they will be there. They can wear their old uniform or black and orange clothing, she said.
Contact Vires at the school at 308-882-4304, or at home, 308-882-5120.
