School spirit is running high at River Valley High School this week as the Raiders celebrate Homecoming. On Thursday, River Valley will hold their annual Homecoming Parade filled with floats from the school’s classes and clubs. The parade will start at the high school and will circle the streets of Bidwell. This year’s theme is “Spear the Spartans.” Following the parade will be the Powder Puff game in which the sophomore and senior lady Raiders will take on the freshmen and junior; tickets are $2.
Homecoming activities will culminate Friday evening at 7:30 when the 5-1 Raiders take on the Alexander Spartans. During halftime, the senior homecoming candidates will be presented and this year’s homecoming queen will be crowned. The 2015-2016 candidates are Shelby Brown, Lindsey Canaday, Ashley Gilmore, Courtney Smith, and Jacey Walter. Homecoming activities are being sponsored by the RVHS Beta Club and National Honor Society.
