Battler Homecoming at GHS gets underway next week
Homecoming will get underway next week, Sept. 9-13 in Gettysburg.
This year’s parade is following a cereal style theme of, “The Battlers aren’t good, they’re GRRReat!” Members of the community are invited to join in next Friday’s parade which starts at 1:30 p.m. Please call the school at 765-2436 by Friday morning at 9 a.m. to let them know you plan to participate. Parade line up starts around 1 p.m. on the east side of Commercial Avenue.
Following the parade, a pep rally will be held at the school gym. The week will kick off with coronation on Monday, Sept. 9 at 7:30 in the GHS gym. Coronation will be followed by the football jersey auction and burning of the “G.” The royalty candidates selected by the student body are Aaron Beetsch, Mitch Hinckley, Chase Sievers, Hayden Simon, Lili Cronin, Alli Lake, Kelcey Robbennolt, and Morgan VanderVorst. The crowners at the event will be Katrina Smith and Austin Dutenhoeffer.
The GHS Student Council announced the dress-up days for the week which start off with Military Monday, Twin Tuesday, Zombie Day on Wednesday, Redneck Day on Thursday, and Friday will be Battler Pride Day.
