Miss-Lou Schools Show Team Spirit for Reunion Week – Mississippi’s Best Community Newspaper
NATCHEZ – It’s reunion week for several Miss-Lou schools including Cathedral, Vidalia High School, Adams County Christian School and Delta Charter and schools are showing their team spirit.
Natchez High School and Ferriday High School are both slated to host homecoming events later in October.
Vidalia High School’s reunion schedule for this week is packed with a variety of fun themes, one on one, to dress up the students to compete for the best look.
Monday was Athletes vs. Mathletes, Tuesday was DC vs. Marvel Comics, Wednesday was Country vs. Classic, Thursday was Disney vs. Nickelodeon, and Friday is Viking Spirit Day with everyone sporting their white and blue.
A viking pep rally is scheduled for Friday morning at 9 a.m. followed by a return home parade at 2 p.m. before the big match against General Trass on Friday evening at 7 p.m.
The tribunal includes reunion queen Abby Fielder; senior chambermaids Hannah Jackson, Shakyra Blanton, Gentry Brown and Brianna Parker; junior maid Kaylee Ashley; sophomore maid Anasia Jefferson; and first year maid Morgan Wyatt.
Delta Charter School is heading into game day with some tropical dress-up themes, more wacky this week. Monday was âUnder the Seaâ day at Delta Charter, where students were allowed to dress like anything from pirates to mermaids to sea creatures. On Tuesday, they wore fan kits for their favorite team, from high school to the major leagues, as the middle schoolers celebrated a cheering rally Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. before the game at 5:30 a.m.
Wednesday was wacky with matching clothes, crazy hair, and all the other dress-up shenanigans students and teachers could imagine. Thursday was like a tropical vacation with a Hawaiian theme with grassy skirts and poses.
On Friday, students and teachers will show off their team spirit dressed in school colors ahead of the big return match against the island of Sicily, which starts at 7 p.m.
The high school cheer rally begins at 9 a.m. Friday with a return parade right after.
The high school reunion tribunal that will be featured at halftime includes freshman maids Emma Foster and Heaviyn Dunbar; sophomore maids Mia Johnson, Charley Prunty and Mallory Wallace; good juniors Carlee Short and Sydney Burns; senior housekeepers Cianna Paige, Sophie Cooper, Caroline Mason and Alexis Yates; and reunion queen Saige Smith.
Their junior senior court, which will be presented at 6:15 am Friday, includes Andi Akins and Jada Burr, sixth year; Paisley Pahnka and Azlyn Curtis, seventh year; and Allyson Atwood and Taylor Ferguson, eighth grade.
Monday was western and camouflage day for elementary school students at the cathedral. For high school and junior high school students, the slogan was âWinning is as Easy as ABCâ. Each grade level from sixth to 12the rank has been assigned a letter of the alphabet and could disguise itself as something that begins with that letter.
Tuesday was swimsuit day and Wednesday was pajama day for all grade levels and elementary students shone bright for Neon Day on Thursday while middle school and college kids dressed up as teenagers from different decades, 1950s to 2000s for their “Game of the Century” theme.
Friday, of course, is Spirits Day in preparation for Friday night’s second leg against the Copiah Academy. The reunion court will begin its traditional parade around the pitch in convertibles one hour before match time at 7:30 am.
The cathedral’s reunion yard features first-year chambermaids Kinslee Young and Liza Gregg; second year chambermaids SK Cauthen and Marlie Hargon; junior maids Maddie Verucchi, Bailee Anderson, Camille McDonough and Abby Rose Mire; senior housekeepers Mia Goods and JaJa Jordan; Dukes Harper Jones and Paxton Junkin; the bridesmaids Izzy DuprÃ© and Sarah Saxon Falkenheiner; Reunion King Tyler Gregg; Homecoming Queen Julia Richardson; and the mascots Lewie Brown, Ella Blase GaudÃ© and Stevie Garner.
At Adams County Christian School, students celebrated Reunion Week with 1950s outfit on Monday and dressing like their favorite teachers on Tuesday. Wednesday was also pajama day at AC and Thursday was all leather and hula skirts with a biker and beach goer theme.
On Friday, students mingle with crazy socks and Rebel Spirit gear ahead of their 7pm return match against Silliman
The court includes sophomore daughters Blair Rutland and Camren Strittman; Junior maids Lida McCall and Mallory McIlwain; and senior chambermaids Maddie Campbell, Brooke Collier and Taelor Magee. A senior will be crowned reunion queen at halftime in the ACCS game against Silliman on Friday night.
The school also invites CASC alumni to celebrate with them at a pre-game party, which begins at 4 p.m. Friday on Chinquapin Lane. Those planning to attend can confirm their attendance at [email protected]
