Every year in October, Pierce High School celebrates their football homecoming. With a full week of preparation before Friday October 21st; the whole town participates in the big event. Planning of homecoming takes energy, time, and most importantly teamwork; and not just on the football field but throughout the community as well.

Local businesses and households show their school spirit by participating in a decorating contest for the Best Decorated House and Businesses. The home and business that shows the most spirit, will win a prize.

Several community members volunteered their time and resources to help make homecoming a success. They also provide the supplies needed to make homecoming possible. To recognize and celebrate their generous contributions the Pierce High School ASB chooses the citizen that has helped out the most and honors them with the title of Grand Marshall of the parade.

This year’s Grand Marshall is Raymond Charter; he has helped our community countless times throughout the years.

During the week of homecoming the student body prepares for the upcoming proceedings; the football players are practicing hard and the ASB is organizing the parade and school activities. All classes, the seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshman participate in friendly competition, that involves building floats for the parade, participating in games and dress up days, and making posters to put up in the hall and attach to the float. Students work together all week to get everything ready for the big day.

The cheerleaders also take a part in preparing for the game by hosting a one day cheer camp on Saturdya, October 15th at 8:30 a.m.. The camp provided coaching lessons for girls ages 4-13 in the community. The girls were taught four cheers and one dance that will be performed during the junior varsity half time on Friday, October 21.

Homecoming, in community of Arbuckle, is perceived as one of the biggest community rallies of the year. From the school activities, to the parade to the big game the whole community is involved in putting together
