Paden City High School is excited to announce plans for the 2018 Homecoming festivities. The student council organization, under the leadership of President Delainey Lantz and Vice President Hannah Loy, has planned a multitude of fun activities.

The theme for this year’s spirit week is “Welcome to the Show” and has a movie tied in with each day’s dress code. Monday is “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” which has students dressing in cowboy attire. Tuesday is “High School Musical,” which will have everyone wearing their favorite team apparel to show their support. Wednesday is a throwback to the 80s. In tribute to “The Breakfast Club,” scrunchies, legwarmers, and all the other typical 80s fashion will be seen throughout the hallway.

There will also be a movie showing on the football field with a projector in the evening for the community. Thursday is the beloved American Pride day to go along with the American Classic, “Rocky.” There will be a bonfire in the evening at Paden City Park after the junior high football game. “Friday Night Lights” will bring the week to a close with the annual Green and White day. The anticipated Powder Puff game will begin around 2:30 p.m. Parents are invited to attend. Lastly, the community will get together once again for the Homecoming Parade at 6 p.m., which is directly followed by the Varsity Football game. Kick-off begins at 7 p.m. against the Dragons of Cameron, with the coronation of the 2018 Homecoming Queen at halftime by Kameron McClain, the 2017 Homecoming Queen.
