BHS Homecoming 

Beloit High School was recently informed that KWCH-Wichita plans to cover Beloit High School’s 2016 Fall Homecoming!  Though we don’t know exactly what parts they will choose to cover, we thought this would be a great opportunity to showcase our wonderful community to a state-wide television audience!  With that in mind, we’re opening up Beloit High’s parade to business entries. The parade is at 2:30 p.m. next Friday, Sept. 16.  High school entries will be first in the parade (students involved need to get to Trojan Stadium for the pep assembly that follows the parade), followed by business entries.  Our opponent at Trojan Stadium that evening is the Sacred Heart Knights.  The theme for the high school entries deals with music (song, genre, period, instrument, etc).  For instance, one class has decided to go with “KISS the Knights Goodbye” and those on the float will dress like band members from KISS.  If you choose to participate in the afternoon parade, you can go with our music theme or choose something completely different.  A parade entry form is attached to this e-mail.  Please fill it out and return it no later than Wednesday, Sept. 14 if your business plans to participate in the parade.  The form also includes contact information if you have additional questions.  Whether you choose to participate in the parade or not, thank you for the continued support you give our school and students throughout the year!
