Special to the Bulletin

This week is Homecoming Week for Early High School as the Early Longhorns prepare to meet the Jim Ned Indians.

Early High School students and sponsors have been decorating the hallways, competing for the “best decorated hallway,” and “theme” dressing for the day, each school day. To start off the week, students wore hats to school on Monday, to signify “Hats off to the Longhorns!” Tuesday, EHS students dressed up as twins to make the Indians see double. Today is “Sports Hero Day.” Thursday is “Movie Star Day,” and Friday is “Purple Day.”

Other homecoming schedule changes and/or activities include:

The homecoming pep rally will begin at 9:30 a.m. Friday morning in the high school gym. Immediately following the pep rally, Early Exes will meet on the gym floor to elect a Coming Home King and Queen. This couple, along with the Homecoming Queen and court, will be presented in pre-game activities that begin at 7 p.m. Friday at McDonald Field. There will not be a blackout pep rally as in years past, but one will be rescheduled for a later date. The Early High School Belles Dance Team will be performing at half time of the homecoming game. The Belles, under the direction of Tammy Bannister and Marie Algiere, received a standing ovation at their last performance at Clyde. The Belles’ captains are seniors Hannah Gramling, Kyndall Howard and Kami Fryar, and Samantha Sutherland, a junior. The Early Middle School drill team and cheerleaders are sponsoring a homecoming dance for EMS students, only, from 10:30 p.m. to midnight in the EMS gym. Tickets can be purchased from any cheerleader or drill team captain in advance and will be available also at the door.
