Crossett High School is marking homecoming this week.
The afternoon homecoming court ceremony will be open to the public.
Students will be dismissed from class at 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1 in advance of the assembly.
The doors will open to the community at 2:15, and while residents will not need tickets to be present, those who choose to attend will be required to wear appropriate face masks that cover their mouth and nose.
The homecoming football game will be at 7 p.m. against the Dumas Bobcats.
The Crossett Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a “Roast the Bobcats” spirit bonfire at the Crossett Farmer’s Market Tuesday evening, and is selling tickets for a spirit raffle for a 58-inch Hisense Roku 4K Ultra HD television, a wall mount and a 20-inch bluetooth sound bar. The drawing for the raffle will be at half time during the football game Friday.
The Chamber and the Crossett Parks and Recreation Department are also encouraging community businesses to show their Eagle support by painting their windows or otherwise decorating their businesses. Judging for the best display will be Thursday, and the winner will receive a $100 gift card to any Chamber member business of their choice and a pizza party.
Inside the walls of the schools, spirit week included school color day on Monday and tie dye day on Tuesday. On Wednesday, students were scheduled to dress up like senior citizens, and Thursday is western day. The final day of the school week, Friday, will be dress up day.
The homecoming dance for CHS students will be 8 to 11 p.m. Saturday in the CHS arena. Tickets to the Mardi gras-themed dance — Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler — are on sale through Friday for $20 a person. Tickets will not be on sale the night of the dance.
