The following spirit days will be observed that week as part of the annual spirit week:

Tuesday, September 29th–Pajama Day

Friday, October 2nd–Black Out/Pirate Pride Day


And now the tough part: the longest running football homecoming parade in the state.  Planning a parade this year has proven most difficult, but we are thrilled to announce that we will be able to keep some of the tradition going, albeit in a very limited capacity on Monday, September 28th at 4:30 P.M.  As a result of COVID restrictions and social distancing guidelines, many hard decisions had to be made to make sure we are adhering to expectations of school administration and the Clark County Health Department, so this year’s student participation will be limited to the homecoming court, class officers or selected representatives of a class for the four class floats, cheerleaders, marching band, and the varsity football team.  We welcome the students and community to line up along the parade route, respecting the cones set out for social distancing by the City of Charlestown. 

The parade route remains the same and can be seen below.  The parade will not stop on the square this year as we are not able to hold the pep rally.  Student Council members are working on a virtual pep rally that will be shared via social media. We apologize for any inconvenience this plan causes, but Student Council has put forth their best effort to continue the tradition as much as possible and asks for your respect and support in the event.
