Homecoming 2014 Ticket Sales & Chaperones

Welcome to a new school year!

The faculty and staff at WBHS hope that you had an enjoyable summer. School has just begun, but homecoming is right around the corner. This year the homecoming game is on Friday, September 12th with the dance following on Saturday, September 13th at the William Byrd High School main gym from 7:00 pm until 11:00 pm.

Tickets will go on pre-sale to SENIORS only for a special low price of $20.00 per ticket during lunches in the senior cafeteria during the week of August 28th and  29th. Seniors be sure to buy yours at this special low price before ticket sales open up to the rest of the student body. The rest of ticket sales will go as follows:

Sept. 2nd- 10th: $25.00 each (Open To All)
Sept. 11th- 12th: $30.00 each (Last Minute Price Open To All)

Tickets will NOT be sold at the door. All students MUST have a ticket purchased by Friday, Sept. 12th no later than 4:00 pm. No exceptions will be made. If a student's date does not currently attend WBHS, they will need to fill out an Out Of School Date Form (available in the main office and outside of room 230) and return it to Mrs. Farrington by Sept. 12th in room 230. This is a dance for high school students and recent graduates. Middle school students (6th thru 8th) are not permitted to attend.

As always, we appreciate all that you do for our students and if you are interested in chaperoning the event, please contact Mrs. Farrington at cfarrington@rcs.k12.va.us or (540) 890-3090.

Powderpuff Game 2014

With homecoming right around the corner, that means the Junior Girls versus Senior Girls Powderpuff Game is right around the corner as well! If you are interested in participating in the game either as a player, cheerleader or coach, come to ONE of the informational meetings! NO EXCEPTIONS! 

Mark your calendars because you don't want to miss it! 

Thursday, Aug. 28th @ 3:30 pm
Friday, Aug. 29th @ 8:00 am

Both meetings will be in the WBHS Library.

You MUST attend one of the informational meetings in order to participate in the event.

If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Farrington in room 230 or Mrs. Acker in room 251 as soon as possible! (Two days after the informational meetings is not the appropriate time to come see us about playing and you were unable to attend the meetings!)

Remember that this is a FUNDRAISER for the Junior and Senior classes to help with events such as the Homecoming Dance, Senior Honors Banquet, Graduation and Prom just to name a few! 

Even if you're not playing, come show your support! Tickets for the game will be available at the gate the day of the game for $5.00 per person. Athletic passes are not valid for this game.

Homecoming 2014

As everyone has most likely heard, Homecoming 2014 is VERY early this year. So, as a way to get everyone started, I am writing this blog to inform everyone of what they will need to know. Everything from the date and time of the event, ticket prices, dates of ticket sales, etc. 

Phew! Does it get earlier and earlier every year or is it just me? Anyway... on to the important stuff.

To start off, Homecoming Week 2014 begins on September 8, 2014 with Spirit Week festivities set by the SCA. Be sure to keep an eye out for updates on what those will be in a later post. Other events that take place during this week are: 

  • The Junior Girls versus Senior Girls PowderPuff game that will take place on the evening of September 9, 2014. Keep an eye out here for further information and meeting dates for all girls interested.
  • The actual Homecoming Game is the evening of September 12, 2014 against Salem High School so it ought to be a fantastic game. Tickets for the event are sold at the gate and if you haven't purchased your Athletic Pass to ALL WBHS Athletic Home Games, be sure to do so. Just see the school bookkeeper: Mrs. Conner in the main office. 
  • The week culminates with the Homecoming Dance on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at WBHS starting at 7:00 pm- 11:00 pm.
That's quite a busy THIRD week of school don't you think?! 

Now the GOOD stuff and what you need to know to get ready for the Homecoming Dance!

When will tickets go on sale? That's a mighty good question! With the dance looming at the end of the third week of school... we're going to start EARLY!

August 28th (Thursday) and August 29th (Friday) tickets will go on special sale to SENIORS ONLY! So seniors, save your money and buy your tickets early. The price will rise once it opens to everyone else and will rise again the two days before the dance. 

So here they are: 
Aug. 28th-29th: SENIORS ONLY @ $20 each
Sept. 2nd- 10th: Open to everyone @ $25 each
Sept. 11th-12th: Last minute sales @ $30 each

Write checks out to: WBHS 

Tickets will NOT be sold at the door, so be sure to purchase your tickets before you leave lunch on Sept. 12th! 

As always, all out-of-school dates MUST have an Homecoming Date Approval Form 2014 on file with WBHS. 
Homecoming Date Approval Form 2014 

All students must have all obligations to WBHS satisfied before attending the event; including but are not limited to serving detentions, owed library books and other student fees.
