Allentown Central Catholic High School celebrated Homecoming Oct. 16 to 21.
The school week consisted of a variety of dress-up themes, including pajama day, jersey day, twin day, USA day and green and gold day.
The spirit week closed with an enthusiastic pep rally, where various activities and performances took place. The Dance Team and the Mance Team, a group of senior boys that perform a dance choreographed by senior members of the Dance Team, both showed off their talents.
Trick or treat night in Salisbury Township is 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 27.
The South Mall is also having a trick or treat event 3 to 5 p.m. Oct. 28. If you are like me and live near the Emmaus border, their trick or treat night is 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31. I don’t get many trick or treaters where I live, so if I get a few from Emmaus, I give them some candy if I have it.
Last week was Homecoming. Seniors won the decoration contest at this year’s pep rally with the theme of Dr Seuss’s “Oh the Places You’ll Go.” Juniors won both the spirit contest and the man dance competition. Congratulations to the juniors and seniors.
Oct. 13 was the football game where the Falcons competed against the Northern Lehigh Bulldogs. Congratulations to the Falcons, who won the game. Finally to end the Homecoming season, students were able to show off their dance moves at this year’s Homecoming dance held Oct. 14.
The fall weather is finally here and the schools are busy with numerous activities.
Salisbury Middle School is in full swing with Spirit Week, which runs through Oct. 20. There will be a pep rally Oct. 19 beginning 1:40 p.m. Special days include Throwback Day Wednesday, Blue and White Day Thursday and Pajama Day/Believe Day Friday.
With the beginning of October, students have caught Homecoming fever.
Students are preparing for the day’s events in different ways. Choreographers and dancers have been practicing to produce a “man dance.” Artists are putting the finishing touches on their Homecoming decorations. As a reminder, the Homecoming game is Oct. 13 and the dance is Oct. 14.
Central Catholic has begun its Vikings on the Road program, in which select students travel to Central’s feeder schools throughout the Lehigh Valley. During the events, the students share their experiences at Allentown Central Catholic High School and any high school tips they have for eighth graders. So far, the program has visited St. Thomas More School in Allentown and St. Ann School in Emmaus with many more schools still to come.
