A Pontotoc City School District celebration of its second year as an A district and its schools’ achievements in growth and ratings is planned for Friday, October 18. October 18 is also our Pink Out game night, honoring breast cancer survivors. Downtown festivities will begin with a picnic on the square with games, face painting, food, and music at 4:30 on the square. A parade in which breast cancer survivors and students from each school are invited to participate will line up at the courthouse 5:45. The parade will begin at 6:00, ending on the football field for student and faculty recognition. Every school has a reason to celebrate continuing A tradition of excellence and achievement, as well as our athletic teams whose work culminated in the 6th consecutive 4A All-Sports Award. Breast cancer survivor participants, retired educators, and former employees of the district will be honored at half-time of the game. Current students, current and former employees, and breast cancer survivors get in FREE, so don’t miss out on a chance to see the Warriors take on Caledonia and our community celebrate everyone’s efforts ensuring the City schools remain at the top in academics and athletics!
