Annual Bucyrus Homecoming Festivities Feature Community Pep Rally

Every year in the fall, students at Bucyrus High School gear up for the annual Homecoming festivities. And this year is no exception with a full slate of activities for students and the community.

Activities kicked off with a Homecoming Assembly for students in grades 9-12 Sept. 28. During the assembly, the five Homecoming candidates and attendants from the ninth, tenth and eleventh grades were introduced. The 2018 Bucyrus Homecoming Queen will be announced prior to kickoff of the varsity football game Oct. 12 against Colonel Crawford.

“The students have opportunities to get involved in Homecoming week in so many ways,” said Girls’ Boosters co-advisor Amy Plumley. “This is an exciting time for our students, staff and the school district, and I hope the community will join us for a great event Wednesday evening.”

The Community Pep Rally will be held beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Schines Art Park in downtown Bucyrus Oct. 10. The event will kick off with the introduction of the Homecoming court and attendants around 7 p.m. The administration will provide free hot dogs, chips and drinks, and the Kona Ice Truck will be on site selling snow cones with a portion of the profits going back to the school.

The pep rally will also feature “Clash of the Classes.” Each class will be creating photo booths and competing to see which class gets the most selfies in front of their booth. Pictures will be sent to the student council Twitter page. To top it all off, the high school band will be playing throughout the evening.

Community members are encouraged to socialize, meet the students and enjoy the many activities taking place until 8:00 p.m. that evening.

Bucyrus High School alumni are invited to join Superintendent Kevin Kimmel for The Alumni Family and Friends tailgate prior to kick off of the game Friday, Oct. 12. Homecoming festivities will conclude with the annual Bucyrus Homecoming Dance Oct. 13 in the Bucyrus High School gymnasium.
