Friday Night Flashback is the theme for the 2018 Scotland County R-I Homecoming, which will be celebrated on Friday, October 5th. Students at SCR-I will be celebrating all week with a variety of Spirit Days culminating with Friday’s parade, football game and high school dance.
Starting Monday, October 1st, students will show their school pride by dressing in accordance to each day’s spirit theme. Monday, students will do their best to take us back a couple centuries for 1776 America Day. Tuesday will be back to the present, with a little more comfortable look, replacing powdered wigs with pajamas. The time machine comes back into play Wednesday, but the trip isn’t as far as students will dress for Tie Dyed Hippies Day. Things will get really interesting Thursday for Decade Dispute when 7th graders will dress for the Early 2000s; 8th graders – 90s; Freshmen – 80s; Sophomores – 70s; Juniors – 60s; and Seniors – 50s.
The SCR-I Student Council will be collecting for a different charitable organization each day. Students can donate and the dollar amount donated per day by each class along with the number of students per grade dressed up for spirit days will determine which class receives the SC SPIRIT STICK.
Friday will be Tiger Spirit Day, with high school students preparing for the parade. School will dismiss at 1:05 p.m. with the parade forming at 2:15 p.m. The parade will start at 3 p.m. and a community pep rally will follow on the square.
