Cleveland Heights High School kicks off its homecoming festivities at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19, and at 7 p.m., the Heights Tigers will take on the Lorain Titans. This year’s homecoming theme is Glow in the Dark.
“Homecoming weekend is a special time for our students and our community,” Superintendent Doug Heuer said. “It brings us together and gives us another reason to celebrate our Tiger Pride. We’re all looking forward to it.”
The weekend fun begins with the homecoming parade and Family Fun Fest, and the community is welcome. Students and participating community members will meet at the school at 5 p.m. on Friday. The parade down Washington Boulevard begins at 5:30 p.m. Community groups that wish to march in the parade should contact Kristin Hughes at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216-320-3015 for information.
The Family Fun Fest will begin after the parade outside the gates to the football field. Activities will include bounce houses for children, face painting and fake tattoo stations. Free glow sticks will be distributed to children while supplies last.
The Sign Language Department’s Chili Cook-off Challenge begins at 6 p.m. at the concession stand closest to the football field entry gate. All proceeds will support the department’s trip to Africa later this school year.
