We are gearing up for the revolution of the year! This year’s JPII Homecoming Theme is “The Falcon Revolution” and as we prepare for battle, we want to include you all in our battle plan strategy. Included in this letter is everything you need to know to make JPII Homecoming 2015 all that it can be!
During the week our students will dress up according to each theme:
Monday – Media Monday
(TV, movies, sports, radio, etc. dress as your favorite person in media)
Tuesday – Tourist Tuesday
Fanny packs, visors, maps, etc… Where are you a tourist?
Hey! Remember Catholic High? We do too and want to see it come back! Wear any old uniforms or sweatshirts from the old school and let’s remember where we started from as we come together to celebrate the Eucharist at mass.
Friday – FALCON Friday
Students and Faculty are free to wear their homecoming 2015 t-shirt with jeans. The 2015 homecoming shirt will be the only spirit wear t-shirt permitted, otherwise wear your normal school uniform.
Game: The Homecoming Game is going to be a “black out” as we encourage all in attendance to wear our homecoming t – shirt. Our football team will be proudly wearing our FALCON green.
Homecoming Court: We are asking that all those on court dress appropriately; girls in a black dress and boys in black pants and jacket. If the boys are on the football team, they will be wearing their uniform. Girls will be walking with their fathers and boys with their mothers. We also ask that parents be dressed appropriately along with their student.
Dance: The dance will take place on Saturday, September 26th. We are continuing our revolutionary blackout theme with “Dark Night Glow Bright”.
Dance Tickets: Homecoming tickets are being sold a little differently this year. The students will sign up at both lunches and they will indicate who is paying. At the end of each day the list will be given to Ms. Vicki Barkley and the parent of the student paying will be billed through FACTS. Tickets are: $20 for a single & $35 for a couple. Prices will go up by $5 on Monday, September 14th.
