It's Homecoming time at Anchor Bay High School.
The Tars will play Cousino on home field, as the crowd fills the stands to cheer them on. Patch asks Anchor Bay Student Activities Director Jennifer Serra about today's event and how the student body has been prepping for the festivities.
What kind of preparations are being made for Homecoming?
Student Council members have been selling tickets for several weeks. Each grade is also responsible for helping with one aspect of HC: freshmen help with the parade, sophomores with Spirit Week, Juniors with Royalty, and Seniors handle the Pep Assembly. Float construction started on Monday and wrapped up last night.
Tell us about the floats that will be in the parade. Which ones do you think will stand out? Why?
The floats are all based on Detroit Sports teams. I think each group has done a great job, and I look forward to seeing how our judges score them.
How do you think this Homecoming will differ from previous ones?
I think we have a strong HC tradition, so I actually hope it doesn't differ too much. We get a good turn out for the parade and game, and we get over 1,200 students at the dance (Saturday night).
What is the line up and schedule for tonight?
We have a Teacher Tailgate starting at 4 p.m. The Parade will get started around 5:45 p.m. Kick-off for the game is at 7 p.m. At the conclusion of the game, we will present our awards for Best Float, Spirit Week participation, and Pep Assembly Spirit along with our HC royalty and the crowing of this year's King and Queen.
