Homecoming festivities will kick off Monday with "Music Mix Monday." Each class will dress in a different music-genre theme: seniors, rock-n-roll; juniors, disco; sophomore, hip-hop; freshmen country; and seventh and eighth grade are asked to pick their favorite genre.
Tuesday will be "Twinkie Day," and Wednesday is "Color War Day." Students will dress in the color paired with their class: seniors, black; juniors, blue; sophomore, green; freshmen, red; eighth grade, white; and seventh grade, yellow.
Thursday is crazy fan day and Friday is green and white day.
During the week, students will participate in competitions, including a trivia contest, banner contest, hoop shoot and talent show, and will earn points for their grade. At the end of the week, the grade with the most accumulated points will be declared winner and will receive a prize. If named the winner, seniors or juniors will be dismissed after lunch the following Tuesday, and grades 10th through seventh will be awarded a trip to the bowling alley in Jonesboro after lunch on Tuesday.
The crowning of the queen will take place on Friday night at 6:45 p.m., prior to the senior high game at 7 p.m. against Piggott. The seventh-grade game will begin at 5 p.m., followed by the junior-high game at 5:45 p.m.
