Homecoming is an exciting time for school spirit and fun for the Paris Wildcats. Please help celebrate Homecoming Spirit Week: “Wildcats in Wonderland.”
Monday is “We’re All Mad Here” and students wear hats for Mad Hatter Hat Day. On “Tweedle Tuesday,” students dress like a twin or like Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Favorite Walt Disney characters will be the dress on “Walt Disney Wednesday.” Then Thursday, it’s “Do You Suppose She’s a Wildflower?” so wear in late 60’s to early 70’s Flower Power! Friday, students, will show they are “Wildcats in Wonderland” and dress in spirit shirts.
