Madera South has kept very active lately and they’re only putting in more work each week!
Two weeks ago, some art students were able to show off their talent at the Circle Gallery where paintings from the Madera South Art Club were displayed for “Celebrate Agriculture With the Arts” at the Madera County Arts Council’s Circle Gallery. It’s nice to be able to give the community a look at the work of the talented artists at Madera South.
These past two weeks, the senior class at South has been concentrated on their futures, working on college applications and career opportunities.
And for the event we have been waiting for ... (drum roll please) ... “Stallions Explore the Eras” this ... homecoming! It’s around the corner and the Stallions have been working hard to execute a great one. Many students will be participating on float building, be involved in the homecoming court, or playing at the game. Every day there will be dress up days, rewards and prizes for those who dress up, daily lunchtime activities including a dunk tank with a few staff members and even a carnival full of fun games for students to play during lunch.
Our Homecoming Day will take place on Oct. 14, and it will be one jam-packed day. Our parade will feature more than 25 floats, and will begin at 10:10 a.m. at Stadium Road and Maple Street, travel southbound on Stadium and then westbound on Pecan Avenue. Community members are asked to watch on Stadium Road, and pom poms, beads and lots of stallion spirit will be given out.
After the rally, at 12:20 p.m., students will be treated to a rally featuring performances, games and the crowning of our underclassmen royalty.
That evening, we will have pre-game events at 6:45 p.m., including our grand marshal presentation to Roger Leach, spirit walk with more than 24 clubs, and even the game ball being brought in by Madera Parachute Club.
During half time, we will recognize our underclassmen royalty winners, announce all of our senior king and queen candidates and crown homecoming king and queen. To conclude half time, we will honor our 40 honorary staff members who were selected by a football player.
We hope to see members of the community and MSHS alumni attend both the parade and the game. In advance, on behalf of Madera South, thank you for the continuous support towards our school and building the tradition that began back in 2006 when Madera South first opened its doors.
