Homecoming is an exciting time of school spirit and fun for the Paris Wildcats. Please help celebrate Homecoming Spirit Week: “In My Wildcat Era!” Tuesday, September 5 – Friday, September 8.
Tuesday is “Lasso or Lace Up,” where students dress up like country or country club. On Wednesday, students dress for “Color Wars,” where each grade level is assigned a different color to wear. “Get your head in the game” will be the dress on Thursday; students can wear their favorite sports jersey. Friday, students will show their “Wildcat Spirit” and dress in spirit shirts.
The 2023 Homecoming Queen and King nominees will be introduced during the pep rally, which begins Friday at 3 p.m. at Wildcat Stadium. Queen nominees are Baleigh Cashion, Shamyia Holt, Adeliz Hinojosa, Jasmine Franklin, and Madeline Green. King nominees are Jordan Perkins, Salvador Gomez, Corday Cooper, Dycurian Douglas, and Kelton Varner. The 2023 Homecoming King will be announced during the pep rally, and the Queen will be crowned in pregame ceremonies at 7 p.m.
The parade follows the pep rally, with the route to begin downtown at Market Square at 4 p.m. Extra vehicles will not be allowed to park near the Farmers Market staging area. The procession will turn east onto West Sherman, then north on South Main, east on Clarksville Street, north on 3rd SE (in front of First United Methodist Church) for one block, west on Lamar Avenue (U.S. 82 Business) to the west side of downtown plaza, south on 1st SW and return to the Farmers Market area.
