Homecoming has finally arrived, sort of. March 22-26, Homecoming week comes back to Meridian. There are events Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, along with dress-up days for students throughout the week. There will be no dance. This year’s theme is “Cities of the World” with the freshman representing New York, the sophomores London, the juniors Paris, and the seniors Tokyo. 

“Even though I was E-Learning most of the year, I was still looking forward to my last homecoming dance as a senior,” Amber Miller said. “I think it’s good the school is making the best of the situation and providing spirit days for us to participate in.”

The spirit days for Meridian students are as follows:

Monday- Pajama day 

Tuesday- Tourist day

Wednesday- Get Out of the City day (Dress Country)

Thursday- Class T-Shirt day

Friday- School Spirit day

On Wednesday, March 24, the parade will line up outside Meridian High School at 5:00 p.m., and leave at 5:30 p.m. There will be no class floats, but the Homecoming court will be riding in their respective cars. The announcement of King and Queen will be held after the parade on the football field at approximately 6:15 p.m. 

Thursday evening the boy’s soccer team plays Blue Ridge at 4:30 p.m. There will also be a volleyball game held in the high school gym at 6 p.m. Homecoming banners made by each class will hang at both games.

“I am most excited to get in and play with my teammates. It feels amazing to play again. It’s been a while since I’ve actually got out and done something so it feels good.”, junior, Devynn Egbert said. 

“[Working on homecoming decorations,] the first year was really fun sophomore year. I think we had more of a concept. Junior year was a great success and I’m really proud of what we made for that,” senior, Katelyn Lowry said. “This year has been tough, but I really have thoroughly enjoyed spending time doing the posters.” 

Friday morning from 7:15 a.m.-7:45 a.m. there will be a school breakfast available. A coronation ceremony will be held at the school and live streamed at 2:30 p.m. The football team will play Shelbyville with the game starting at 7 p.m.
