School briefs: G-C celebrates homecoming week


GREENFIELD — Greenfield-Central High School’s fairytale-themed fall homecoming is this week, with a parade at 5 p.m. Friday Sept. 14 before the home football game against Shelbyville High School at 7:30 p.m.

The public is welcome to come to the parade, which starts at Greenfield Intermediate School and ends at the high school. Each class is honoring a theme: freshmen, Hansel and Gretel; sophomores, Peter Pan; juniors, Alice in Wonderland; seniors, Cinderella.

To celebrate homecoming, students are encouraged to wear themed clothing to class this week: students came to school yesterday, Sept. 13 in pajamas for “Bedtime Story” day. Today students dress as twins in honor of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Wonderland Wednesday will show off “wacky” clothes. Students are encouraged to “Dress to Impress” Thursday in honor of Cinderella’s Ball. Blue and gold will be sported Friday, and there will be a special lunch for students and a pep session with powder puff football during the school day. Following Friday’s parade and game, a semi-formal dance for G-C students only will be held Saturday evening.
