It will soon be Football Homecoming time and Potosi High School will stage its big annual Fall celebration in conjunction with the Central Rebels football game Friday evening, Oct. 4th.
Special “Spirit Week” activities are planned by P.H.S. students for each day that week leading up to the big celebration on Friday. Spirit days are as follows:
Monday: Mr. Sandman, Bring me a Dream – Pajama Day
Tuesday: Born in the U.S.A. - America Day
Wednesday: Holding Out for a Hero - Superhero Day
Thursday: Man in the Mirror - Twin Day
Friday: Purple Rain - Purple/Gold Day
On Friday, the Homecoming Maids of Honor (selected by their respective classes) and the Homecoming King and Queen will be announced at the Homecoming Assembly that day in the school gymnasium. After the assembly, the Homecoming Court will ride in the parade through downtown Potosi. The parade begins at approximately 1:45 p.m. The formal Coronation Ceremony will be held that evening at the Trojan Field Football Stadium prior to the 7 p.m. kickoff of the Homecoming game.
All community organizations and businesses are welcome to participate in the parade. Any groups that would like to enter a float, truck, etc. should contact Deanna Mercille at Potosi High School (573-438-2156) by Thursday, October 3rd, 2019. CANDY IS NOT TO BE THROWN FROM THE FLOATS. All community/city floats will line up at the City Park and all school floats will line up at First Baptist Church. The committee would greatly appreciate Trojan colors of Purple and Gold decorations by businesses along the parade route. The parade will begin at the First Baptist Church and proceed through the downtown area (High Street).
Immediately following the game, students and invited guests will enjoy music and dancing at the Homecoming Dance in the school’s multipurpose room.
