2016 Homecoming Spirit Week
Homecoming at Prince Avenue Christian School is an event that students, parents, faculty, staff and alumni can all enjoy! Spirit Week provides a number of fun activities designed to unify all Wolverines, and it is always fun to catch up with our graduates when they return to campus for the football game tailgate.
Prince Avenue Christian School's 2016 Homecoming will be celebrated on Friday, October 7, with Spirit Week leading up to the varsity football game against Lakeview. All students are invited to participate in the Spirit Week dress up days. Middle and high school students will also compete in banner, hall decoration and spirit cheer/skit competitions. This year's Homecoming theme is What's “UP” with you Lakeview?” Wolverines,Let’s show “UP” and bring home a WIN!
2016 Homecoming Representatives:
Homecoming Representatives are chosen by the high school student body. Criteria for selection includes the “fruit” of the Spirit as listed in Galatians 5:22-23. Students are asked to consider: Do these students have a genuine walk with the Lord? Does their social media honor God? Are they striving to please Christ above all else? Are they involved in school activities, and do they proudly support all things Prince Avenue?
Representing the ninth grade are Allie Carter and Hamilton Culpepper. Sophomore representatives are Lilly Renn and Trace Jeffers, while the juniors elected are Emma Taylor and Matthew Colquitt. Senior representatives include Virginia Beth Butler, Macy Frazier, Palmer Heath, Isabelle Renn, Baylee Rogers, Josh Cartey, Jared Gilstrap, Forde Norris, Chandler Smith, and Sam Todd. High school students will elect Mr. and Miss PACS from the senior representatives.
Mr. and Miss PACS will be voted on by the high school students. Mr. PACS will be announced at the Wolverine Growl, and Miss PACS will be announced during half-time of the Homecoming football game on Friday night.
