Reedy High School Roars with Campus Pride

Nov 06, 2015

Frisco ISD’s newest high school marked its first “forthcoming” the week of November 2-6.

Reedy High School, the District’s 8th, opened in August with freshmen and sophomores. It doesn’t have alumni to welcome back for homecoming – but that didn't keeping students and staff from enjoying all the festivities of a traditional homecoming experience.

Forthcoming Week featured dress-up days, pep rallies, a community carnival, football game and themed dance.

It was an opportunity to celebrate school spirit and how students, staff and parents have grown together as a campus community.

Check out the video for a closer look at the opening of Reedy High School.

This school year, students have gotten the unique opportunity to establish new school traditions.

Among them are Reedy freshman Ellie Meinershagen's idea to create an alternative to large, artificial homecoming mums. The Student Council sold simple flowers for Forthcoming, with a portion of proceeds benefiting a local charity that brings birthday joy to homeless children.

Meinershagen presented a $2,000 check to the The Birthday Party Project during a school pep rally on November 5.

Sales of more traditional mums by Reedy cheerleaders will also benefit The Birthday Party Project.
