Homecoming week at Churchill County High School kicked off Monday with special events and dress-up days.
This year’s theme is “We Got the Beat” and events began with the student council dyeing the downtown fountain at 11:05 a.m. Later in the day, a short parade from Millennium Park south on Maine Street featured many school organizations, the powder puff flag football teams and the Greenwave football teams.
The annual powder puff game, a gridiron battle between the junior and senior girls, was played after the parade.
A pep assembly is planned for either Wednesday or Thursday, and on Friday, the royalty is announced at halftime of the South Tahoe-Fallon football game that begins at 7 p.m.
Capping off the special week is a dance in the main CCHS building from 8-10 p.m.

Monday: Thrift Store Mix and Match or Country or wear the color red
Tuesday: Surfers or bikes or wear the color blue
Wednesday: Workout attire or neon colors
Thursday: fraternity vs. sorority, favorite college or military shirt
Friday: Green and white day
