It’s Courtwarming week at Fayette High School and the week is packed with activities and opportunities for students to display their school spirit.
This year’s theme for Courtwarming is Destination Falcon Nation. Students are able to participate in different Dress-Up-Days for spirit week. Themes for each day are based on destination attire. Tuesday, the theme was tropical with Tampa Tuesday, today it is moving west with Wild West Wednesday, then further southwest with Mexico Monday (held on Thursday). To finish up the week, the attire returns to Fayette with Black and Gold Day on Friday.
A pep assembly will be held on Friday at 2:30 p.m. During the assembly the Courtwarming Court will be introduced, with King and Queen being crowned at half-time of the boys game Friday night. Both the Lady Falcons and Falcons will take on Scotland County Tigers for their Courtwarming on Feb. 2.
Members of the Courtwarming Royalty include Freshmen Breanna Estes and Kyle Schleeter, Sophomores Abbey Conrow and Cale Polson, Juniors Jennifer Nelson and Kolby Skaggs, and Seniors Samantha Conrow, Blake Dawson and Chavez Kent. Crownbearers will be Brynn Simpson and Knox Howell.
