Businesses invited to decorate for Homecoming Week

The Chester High School Associated Student Body is looking forward to its 2019 Homecoming festivities Sept. 30 through Oct. 4. Themed “Unique and United,” CHS classes have chosen “States” for their week long spirit and float competitions.

Once again, high school students are inviting Chester businesses to unite with Chester High School to build strong community support for Chester Volcanoes Athletic programs by “painting the town green” so to speak.

Join in the community spirit competition between Chester businesses, where those who have the best “Chester Pride” decorations displayed will receive recognition in the school’s Homecoming program.

Event organizers said, “We encourage you to decorate during Homecoming Week, although businesses will be judged prior to the parade start on Oct. 4 at 1:30 p.m.”

The parade route travels from CHS to CES on Aspen and down Main Street to Olsen Road, then  returning to Chester High School for a pep rally beginning at approximately 2:30 p.m.

Festivities traditionally include powder-puff fundraisers, both volleyball and football, by the Class of 2020.

The third annual bonfire is planned Thursday, Oct. 3, beginning at 7:30 p.m., rallying students before the big game against Mercy the following night.

Homecoming activities will be posted on the student calendar when the dates are finalized. There is a link to that calendar on the PCOE website which shows all the upcoming events for Homecoming Week: chs.pcoe.k12.ca.us; scroll down to the link and click on Calendar.

Friday night’s game will begin at 6 p.m. in Chester’s first year participating in an eight-man league. In the absence of a JV team this year, varsity football will kick off the Friday night festivities. Homecoming ceremonies begin at the end of the varsity game.
