Homecoming Parade

Posted on: September 19, 2016

Dear Yellow Jacket Supporter,

On Thursday, October 6th, at 5:30 PM, the Taylor High School Yellow Jackets will kick off our 2016 Homecoming celebration with our annual parade.  The parade will be followed by the student council Powder Puff games in the stadium.   The theme for this year’s Homecoming Parade is “Decades” - so each group is welcome to join in and design your entry around this theme!  Ideas may include: 50’s sock hop, 70’s tie dye..etc - anything goes!   We would like to personally invite you to come out to join us for this year’s parade.

We will be staging at the land of the old Taylor High School student parking lot (now St. Joseph church’s overflow lot) at 4:45 PM and will line-up at 5:00 PM.  The actual parade will leave promptly at 5:30 PM and arrive at Three Rivers Educational Campus approximately one half hour later.

A few items to note about parade participation:

  • No items, including candy, may be tossed or thrown from vehicles.  Any items that are being handed out must be distributed by participants who are walking in the parade.

  • Officials running for office are not permitted to campaign in the parade.  Current officials may participate, but also must adhere to the no campaigning rule and not display any campaigning propaganda.

Friday, October 7th the THS YellowJackets football team will kick off against Reading at 7:00pm.  

If you would like to participate in the parade, please complete the application and return it to Taylor High School no later than Friday, September 30th, 2016.  Please feel free to make copies of the form if necessary.  If you cannot participate in the parade on Thursday, we hope to see you on Friday for kickoff at 7:00 PM in Yellow Jacket Stadium against Reading.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at any time.  Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely Your Senior Class Advisors,

Allison Heisel & Jen Baumaster
