It’s that time of year again. Monday started homecoming week at both Bryan County High School and Richmond Hill High School. That means parades, homecoming queens and, yes, football.
Here’s a look at each school’s schedule.

Bryan County:
This year’s theme is “Redskin Raid,” according to curriculum resource teacher Michael Owens. The entire week will be filled with activities for students, alumni and the community, but the big stuff takes place Monday, Thursday and Friday.
• Monday: Powder puff football at 7 p.m. at Redskin Stadium. Senior girls take on junior girls, BCHS football team members will be coaches and cheerleaders.
• Thursday: The Redskin Raid homecoming parade starts at around 4 p.m. at the Pembroke Telephone Co. The parade will move down Hwy. 280 and end at Strickland Street. It will be followed by a party, including rides, concessions and more, behind the BCHS softball field. The afternoon concludes with the annual bonfire.
• Friday marks the annual homecoming football game, with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. The opponent is Region 3A foe Savannah Country Day. At halftime, the 2010-2011 homecoming queen will be crowned.

The homecoming theme is “The Big Picture,” and is all about movies, according to student contributor Kristin Mixon.
• Thursday: The homecoming parade begins around 6 p.m. It runs along Timber Trail from the rec center to Harris Trail and ends at RHHS.
