Central HS changing Homecoming parade day

booster-chs-falconCentral High School has announced a change to the traditional Homecoming line-up of activities.

The schools has moved the annual Homecoming Parade from Friday of Homecoming week to the Wednesday (Oct. 9 this year) of the same week, said Jonathan Lindh, athletic director.

About the change, Lindh said:

As a school district, we believe the move will allow a greater number of parents to be a part of the parade and be an active participant in homecoming activities.  Also, by hosting it on Wednesday we are able to celebrate all CHS athletics with a community pep rally following the parade.”

The parade will start promptly at 6 p.m. and follow the same route as previous years.

Then, at 7 p.m., there will be the community pep rally will be held at the football stadium to celebrate all Central High School fall sports.

The community is invited.

    The reasoning behind the change does not make sense as most parents find it more difficult to get off of work mid week versus the end of a working week. In addition it’s messing with the spirit of the homecoming game…

  3. Theresa says:

    Which parent asked for this change? They should stop trying to re-live their high school years thru the kids. The CHS homecoming parade is for the kids. If a parent wants to watch or help, then the parent needs to change their schedule for the day. Why change an entire community’s schedule to accommodate a few parents.
