Full week of activities planned at PCHS

Homecoming at Pike County High School is in high gear and excitement is near fever pitch, said Terry Casey, principal.

"We have a full week of activities planned to celebrate Homecoming 2003," he said. "Every day has been designated as special dress up day and the students have a lot of fun with that. Monday was Tacky Day. Today is Twin Day. Wednesday everyone will dress in their pajamas; Thursday is Tie and Overall Day and Friday is Spirit Day."

Thursday will be a big day and night for students and the community.

"At 7 o'clock Thursday night, we'll have a big bon fire down in The Hole across from the gym" Casey said. "This is a big event and we plan on having a big crowd."

The Bulldog spirit will get fired up on Thursday night and that pep and enthusiasm will carry over until it erupts at the early morning pep rally.

The pep rally is set for 8:45 at the school gymnasium and satellite pep rallies will be held for the younger students.

The varsity cheerleaders will take the pep rally on the road to Pike County Elementary School and Banks Middle and Primary schools after the pep rally at PCHS ends, Casey said.

The Pike County High School will march off at exactly 1:30 p.m. and follow a route through downtown Brundidge. Casey said it's not too late to get an entry in the parade.

"If you call the school today, we'll get you in," he said.

Brundidge merchants are painting the town purple and white to salute PCHS students and past graduates who will be in town to cheer their Bulldogs to victory Friday night.

The Homecoming game between the Bulldogs and Calhoun County will kick off at 7:30. Pregame activities include the presentation of the Homecoming Court and the crowing of the 2003 Homecoming Queen.

Casey said the pubic is invited to participate in the bon fire on Thursday night and to come out and support Pike County High School at the parade and the Bulldogs at the game.
