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 Oct. 7. During the assembly, the ten Homecoming candidates and attendants from the ninth, tenth and eleventh grades were introduced. Five candidates will be selected for the Homecoming Court by the senior class. The 2016 Bucyrus Homecoming Queen will be announced prior to kickoff of the varsity football game Oct. 14 against Buckeye Central.
“The students have opportunities to get involved in Homecoming week in so many ways,” Girls Boosters advisor Beth Constantine said. “We have students making signs for the attendants and queen candidates, lining up chaperones, and classes are competing for spirit points this year by being involved in a sign competition. The signs will be on display during the community pep rally. It's great to see students taking on all of these responsibilities and getting into the spirit of what Homecoming is all about!”
A Community Pep Rally will be held beginning at 7:00 p.m. Oct. 12. All events will be held outside behind the gym next to the back building, weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather, events will move into the High School gym.
During the pep rally, community members and students will enjoy a bonfire. The band will play and cheerleaders will lead the crowd in some chants. The homecoming court will be introduced as well. Those planning to attend are encouraged to bring chairs and enjoy the fire at the conclusion of the pep rally.
The Homecoming festivities will conclude with the annual Bucyrus Homecoming Dance Oct. 15 in the Bucyrus High School gymnasium.
