Moffat County Homecoming offers fun for all

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

The members of the Moffat County High School Class of 2015 displays its school spirit during the 2013 Homecoming parade last fall in downtown Craig. This year's Homecoming activities begin Monday and include multiple sporting events, dress-up days and more for students and the community.

Moffat County High School's annual Homecoming festivities take place this week, and the schedule promises plenty to make the tradition a memorable one this year.

This year's theme is "Different Places, Different Faces," reflected in dress-up days that will allow MCHS students and teachers to get creative with costumes ranging from outer space to the Middle Ages to a safari to the Wild West, culminating in Friday's display of school colors and Bulldog pride.

The coveted spirit stick is at stake, so students are encouraged to go all out each day, as well as to get involved with the school's efforts with a canned food drive and the teenage safe driving campaign, Celebrate My Drive.

The soccer and volleyball teams will host home games during the week, as will cross-country as part of a non-competitive event to determine their speed for later meets, while activities like Macho Volleyball for the boys and Powder Puff Football for the girls will allow for a greater amount of participation.

A pep assembly and a bonfire earlier in the week will get MCHS ready for the downtown parade Friday, for which the school is seeking lots of community entries. The cost is $25, and the deadline to register is Wednesday.
