The king and queen will be crowned at halftime of the game. Kickoff is scheduled at 6:30 p.m., not 7 p.m.

The football team is in search of their second win of the season and will be ramped up for the homecoming contest when they take on conference foe Gaylord St. Mary.

The pep assembly will be at 2:25 p.m. with the parade to start at the courthouse at 4 p.m. and will proceed along State Street to First Street.

The dance will be after the game from 8 to 11:30 p.m.

Students, teachers and staff have been participating in spirit week activities since Monday.

It started with everyone in the building wearing gear related to his or her favorite sports team. Tuesday was “black out day.”

Wednesday was “generation day.” Freshmen dressed like babies and sophomores were supposed to be toddlers.

The juniors were professionals and seniors were donned in senior citizen attire. Some staff dressed like teenagers.

Thursday was “back of the closet day” and today is the traditional “red and white day.” The students met a few weeks ago to determine spirit week activities.

The homecoming reps are:

Seniors: Renae Eastham, Morganne Badgero, Shyanne Corey, Ashley LaLonde, Elijah Shockley, Raymond Self, Jason Price and J.T. Pasella.

The juniors include: Mollie Dunn, Grace Henning, Dallas Hyde and Thomas Anglin.

The sophomores are Sage Harman, Clare Bastian, Keaton Brewer and Seth Satchwell.

The freshmen group consists of Kiersten Waldie, Kaylee Johnson, Trevor Wregglesworth and Robert Niester.

If the conditions will allow, court members will drive onto the field for the crowning. The Cardinal marching band will perform before the climatic announcements.

This year’s grand marshal is former transportation supervisor/bus driver Teri Mundy.
