Posted on 09/13/2023

Platte County School District's Homecoming festivities run October 9-14, 2023. This year's theme is "Enjoy the Ride - RoadTrip to Homecoming 2023." Click here for the week's spirit days and festivities.

PCHS will host the Victory Supper on Wednesday, October 11, starting at 6pm 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, Super Saturday youth cheerleaders, and alumni cheerleaders. PCHS cheerleading alumni are asked to arrive at 5:30pm for a short practice. Pirate Legacies, our second (or third) generation Pirates with parents who graduated from PCHS, are invited to gather at 5:45pm in the southside stands for a group photo. The Victory Supper event is open to the community and food will be available.

The Homecoming Parade will begin at 3pm on Friday, October 13, 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 2:25pm as Fourth Street between Zed Martin and Thomas Drive will be closed to traffic beginning at 2:30pm. 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 11. If you have a convertible or Jeep and would be willing to drive Homecoming candidates, please contact Robin Herron.

  • Parade Staging: We will be utilizing the bus loop at the PCHS Phase I Rebuild project for float staging, again this year. Parade entries will receive complete instructions. There will be a shuttle bus to take parade participants and their sponsors back to the main PCR-3 campus.
  • Shuttle Bus: 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, Connections Bank will 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! PLEASE NOTE: The PCHS Band will not be playing on the Courthouse steps.

Homecoming Football Game: The Pirates will take on the Park Hill South Panthers at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 13 at Pirate Stadium. The Homecoming Queen will be crowned at halftime, and the Pride Band will perform after the game.
