Last week was homecoming at Middle Park High School.  It was fun to see our students engage in dress up days, decorate the building, participate during the prep rally and compete on the fields and court.  Homecoming is a great time to build school and community spirit.  It is also a time for traditions such as the bonfire and powder puff football.  

In the spirit of traditions, we at East Grand hopefully started a couple of new traditions.  On Wednesday we had a cook out for all employees and their families.  The hamburgers and hot dogs were served on the front yard of the high school and we had a great turnout.  We will continue to have this event during future homecomings as it gave our staff a chance to mingle with employees from other schools as well as gave the administration a chance to  interact with staff in a more relaxed manner.  Special thanks to our high school students who helped cook.

Another new tradition was started through working with the Granby Chamber of Commerce.  Local businesses donated gifts that were drawn for during the football game.  All  a fan had to do to get a ticket was wear purple.  It was a chilly evening but the stands were filled with purple.  The community support during the game was awesome and I know our athletes appreciated it.

It was a great week full of student, staff and community spirit.  We look forward to continuing to improve our homecoming by blending new and old traditions.  Go Panthers!!
