Homecoming 2022 - A Storybook Homecoming
Posted on 09/15/2022

Platte County's Homecoming festivities run October 3-8, 2022. This year's theme is "A Storybook Homecoming." Click here for the week's spirit days and festivities.

PCHS will host the Victory Supper on Wednesday, October 5, starting at 6 p.m. at Pirate Stadium. The Victory Supper will be a community pep rally with our coaches introducing the fall teams, the crowning of the underclassmen candidates and the Homecoming King, and performances by the Traditions Band, PCHS dance team, PCHS cheerleaders, and alumni cheerleaders. PCHS cheerleading alumni are asked to arrive at 5:30 p.m. for a short practice. Second (or third) generation Pirates (those students with parents who graduated from PCHS) are invited to gather at 5:45 p.m. in the southside stands for a group photo. The event is open to the community.

The Homecoming Parade will begin at 3 p.m. on Friday, October 7, and will run on Fourth Street from Thomas Drive to Rising Star Park. Students will be dismissed three hours early that day. Parents and the community are encouraged to arrive by 2:25 p.m. as Fourth Street between Zed Martin and Thomas Drive will be closed to traffic beginning at 2:30 p.m. Thomas Drive between Siegrist Elementary and Fourth Street will also be closed. If you'd like to participate in the parade, please contact Kyle Perkins for an entry form by October 5. If you have a convertible or Jeep and would be willing to drive Homecoming candidates, please contact Robin Herron.

  • PLEASE NOTE: There will be changes to the staging area setup for the parade this year. We will be utilizing the bus loop at the PCHS Phase I Rebuild project for float staging, NOT the back parking lot of PCMS this year. Parade entries will receive complete instructions.
  • AGAIN THIS YEAR: There will be a shuttle bus to take parade participants and their sponsors back to the main PCR-3 campus. The shuttle bus will be parked along Zed Martin Drive. Floats will disband in the Rising Star Park/Splash Pad and will take the path from Rising Star to Zed Martin Drive. We encourage parents to pick up their participants at the PCR-3 main campus.

Immediately following the parade, Wells Bank will also be hosting its annual Community Tailgate Party, in the High Pointe Shops Shopping Center parking lot. The community is invited to come see PCHS's Traditions Band, cheerleaders and dance team perform, and enjoy free food and drinks!

Homecoming Football Game: The Pirates will take on the Belton Pirates at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 7 at Pirate Stadium. The Homecoming Queen will be crowned at halftime, and the Pride Band will perform after the game.

For PCHS Students Only: PCHS students are encouraged to participate in Homecoming hallway decorations on Sunday, October 2 from 1-6pm and decorate designated class hallways. The PCHS Homecoming Dance will be held Saturday, October 8 in PCHS's North Gym from 8-11pm. $10 per person.
