Homecoming 2016: What You Need To Know

2016 GHS Homecoming
“Glow For It” 
This year’s festivities will take a different twist than in previous years as the downtown area normally used for the parade and the pep rally are under construction. Rather than hosting the parade downtown, the route will begin and end near the high school. This will allow us to get the community involved in more activities than in the past. Ordinarily, the high school has a pep rally on Friday to announce the Homecoming king and queen, but because of the parade’s relocation, we will be having the coronation on Thursday after the parade. The pep rally will precede the coronation in the New Gym at the high school. Everyone in the community is invited to attend to support our schools and students.
On Thursday, October 6th, the Parade and Coronation event will begin with the Dollars for Scholars Committee holding their annual “Dogs for Scholars” Event on the East Side of the High School from 4:00-6:45. Students and clubs participating in the Homecoming Parade will need to meet at the Iowa Telecom Building on 11th Avenue to line-up for the parade (please see schedule below).  The parade will start at the Iowa Telecom Building and head east down 11th Avenue, turn south on Reed Street, turn west on 8th Avenue, and then continue North on Sunset Street to the High School.  Students in the parade may be dropped off at the High School at the end of the parade, if they are attending the Pep Rally. (If students in the parade are wanting to be picked up by their parents, they can continue on to the Iowa Telecom Building where parents can pick them up.)  The Pep Rally & Coronation will begin at 7:00 PM and will take place in the new gym at the High School.  The Pep Rally will include members of the fall sports, the GHS Marching Band, Tiger Paws, Cheerleaders, a football jersey auction benefitting Dollars for Scholars, and the presentation of the Homecoming Court and the Coronation of the 2016 Homecoming King and Queen. 
This year’s Homecoming Court include:  
Catherine Cogley, Emilee Hulsing, Jessica Moore, Leah Ramsey, and Maddie Wilkins;  Sam Allen, Jake Simon, Luke Roudabush, David Gilbert, and Caleb Heinselman.  
Friday night’s football game versus the Nevada Cubs will start with the 9th grade game at 4:45 p.m. and the Varsity Game will begin at 7:30 p.m. at TT Cranny Field.  
To conclude the week’s festivities, the High School will be holding their annual Homecoming Dance, themed for students in grades 9-12 from 9:00-Midnight on Saturday night.  We invite everyone to participate in the 2016 Homecoming Events to watch the Tigers “Glow for It” as they take on the Nevada Cubs.
