Homecoming week kicks off Monday at Jacksonville High School with a full slate of activities for students - and the community - to enjoy.
For the students, the week will feature theme-dress days. Students are asked to be either completely in costume for the appropriate spirit day or 100 percent in usual dress code attire, said student council advisor Lee Traylor.
“All dress should be school appropriate,” he said. “These days are not an excuse to simply ignore follow the dress code, they are an opportunity to show our school spirit.”
Monday will follow regular dress code as it is student picture day.
Tuesday is Team Spirit Day (wear a jersey from your favorite team, regardless of the sport); Wednesday is Nerd Day (let your inner geek shine); Thursday is Hippie Day (retro dress); Friday is Blue and Gold Day. Students voted the “most spirited” boy and girl have the opportunity to win a prize on Friday. Monday: Normal dress because Monday is Picture Day
Friday will also be the school-wide community pep rally and the campus invites the community to attend. It will take place on Friday at 9:30 a.m. at Mauldin Field.
Homecoming week caps off with the football game against Marshall at 7:30 p.m. at the Tomato Bowl. During halftime of the game, Homecoming King and Queen will be announced. Contenders for King are Eric Becerra, Trevor Ewalt, Dadrian Franklin, Javon Johnso and Lex Ticer.
Ladies vying for the honor of Homecoming Queen are Ladaisha Brown, Nicosha Clayborne, Jessica Hines, Miranda Meza and Chancey Scott.
