Also next week, the Volleyball Team will be traveling to Decatur Central on Tuesday night and the Varsity Football Team will host Martinsville on Friday night. During that varsity football game, we will be recognizing our senior athletes from Cross Country and Girls Golf along with the senior members of the Band and Color Guard. We will also be recognizing the October Winners for the Champions of Character across the district. Here is a full schedule for this week’s events. Week of October 6 – revised
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Next week, we are going to have a few activities throughout the week promoting this cause. We will be fundraising for the American Cancer Society (ACS) with different items throughout the week. On Monday and Wednesday, Student Council will be attending PEP classes to sell pink bracelets. We will be having a class competition for Winter Homecoming Spirit Points. The class that raises the most money will receive spirit points. Student Council will also sell the bracelets during lunch on Thursday. On Wednesday, we will be having a Pink Spirit Day. Mrs. Selby will be judging the contest on Wednesday morning at 7:45am in front of the Guidance Office. Spirit Points will be given out and the winners will also receive a ticket to the Football game on Friday night. We also will be having a few activities on Friday night at the game. We will encourage everyone to wear pink to the game. The theme for the night will be a Pink-out. During the game, we will be recognizing any Breast Cancer survivors in attendance between the 1st and 2nd quarters along with collecting money during halftime. Last year, we raised almost $1600 for the ACS.
We hope that everyone will be able to get out and support the Pioneers this week. We have a number of great events and I know that our student-athletes appreciate the positive support from the crowd.
Go Pioneers! #BeEpic
