Reed City to celebrate homecoming festivities

REED CITY — School spirit won’t be in short supply next week as Reed City High School will celebrate homecoming festivities.

The theme for the week is Hawaiian luau, with spirit week beginning Monday, Oct. 3.

Each day has a designated theme, with country or rocker day kicking off on Monday. On Tuesday, the luau will be in full swing as students dress up for Hawaiian day. The freshman, sophomore, junior and senior class members will show off their class colors on Wednesday. Thursday has been deemed as nerd or jock day. Spirit week concludes with red and black day on Friday.

On Wednesday, girls from the four classes will take to the field for the powder puff tournament. The games begin at 7 p.m. Teams will be comprised of at least 11 players for each grade, with four male coaches. Each game will have two 20-minute halves with a running clock. Halftime will be five minutes long. Wednesday’s match-ups have the seniors playing the freshman in the opening game, and the juniors and sophomores will play in the second game. The tournament’s consolation game will be the final game of the night. On Friday afternoon, the winners from Wednesday’s games will face off in game with a running clock with four 12-minute quarters. The clock will stop for injuries and timeouts.

Following school on Friday, the homecoming parade begins at 4:15 p.m. Later that night, the Reed City varsity football team will host arch rival Big Rapids at 7 p.m.

The week’s festivities conclude with the dance Saturday evening.
