Students show spirit during homecoming
With homecoming festivities under way, community members and Moffat County High School (MCHS) students and faculty are showing their spirit. Since Monday, students have participated in face painting, Pajama Day (students wore pajamas to class) and Whacky Whirl Wednesday (tie-dyed clothing) along with float building, volleyball (including a strobe-light game) and football games, a pep rally and Bulldogs paw print painting along Finley Lane.
According to MCHS Student Council Coordinator JoAnn Baxter, activities have been well-attended and students are enthusiastic over the festivities.
Highlighting homecoming Week are the homecoming parade, football game and dance. A final vote for Homecoming king and queen was taken on Tuesday.
The theme for Homecoming Week this year is “Century Celebration.”
Spirited colors and creative designs will converge on the streets of Craig Friday at 1:30 p.m. as the annual MCHS Homecoming Parade takes to the streets.
Each class, along with 26 others (as of Wednesday morning), are building floats for the parade and will compete for cash prizes. Prizes will be awarded in categories for each class and non-class.
Community members will judge the floats on originality, creativity and staying with the theme. Floats may be built as long as they have something in common with the past century.
Students will be dismissed early Friday to participate in the parade. Friday night the Bulldogs will take the field against Rifle at 7:30 p.m.
