    Students involved in student council at Bellefonte Area High School have been working since the beginning of the year with advisers Jennifer Richardson and Arianna Gouzouasis to prepare for 2018 homecoming festivities.

    It started with a student vote for whom to put on the homecoming court at each grade level. There is then a homecoming dance from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Oct. 6, which will be DJ’d by Bellefonte Area graduate Jordan Emely.

    Spirit Week at the high school kicks off on Oct. 8. Monday is comfy clothes day, Tuesday is tie-dye day, Wednesday is meme day, Thursday is throwback Thursday and Friday is red and white day for students to show their Red Raider pride.

    The annual homecoming parade will take place at 6 p.m. Oct. 11 in downtown Bellefonte. It will start at Bellefonte Elementary School, head along Allegheny Street to Bishop Street and end at the high school. A Raider Rally will follow the parade at the entrance to the high school. Student council President Keeli Pighetti said this year’s parade theme is “through the decades” where each class will have a decade-themed float. It was a theme decided at the end of last school year, she added. Freshmen are celebrating the 1980s, the sophomores are celebrating the 1970s, the junior class is celebrating the 1950s and the seniors will have a 1990s theme.

    The homecoming football game will be held 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at Lock Haven University against Central High School, where the senior king and queen will be announced at halftime.
