Congratulations to the following nominees who successfully completed the Homecoming Interview Process, as it was was a true interview!  Everyone should be really proud of all of the nominees!  Based upon their scores (out of the original nominees), these nominees scored the highest on their interview.  These nominees also now have the potential to be the 1st ever MAA Homecoming King and Queen! The actual King and Queen will be selected by the football players and cheerleaders!  The respective teams will vote for their King or Queen on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 during practice, so please make sure that your child is present to vote.   For the teams that have three nominees, the top two nominees (after the players & cheerleaders vote) will be the Homecoming Court that will participate in the Homecoming presentation on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 12 o'clock noon.  MAA has tried to keep the Homecoming King & Queen selection process as close to an actual High School process, with the utmost of integrity.  We would like to thank everyone who helped with the interviews, and all others for your patience and support throughout the process!  MAA Family, please invite your friends and family out to the event on the 29th!  We have a really special day planned!

Bob Jones Homecoming Parade
MAA will be participating in the Bob Jones Homecoming Parade on September 27, 2012.  Parade line up will be at 4:30 pm on Portal Lane in Madison and the parade will begin at 5:00 pm.  It is suggested that parents meet at a mutual spot like Publix on Old Madison Pike since it is not that far from Portal Lane around 4:00 pm for the kids to get on the truck that they will be riding on....Parents should then meet back at this mutual site to pick their kids up.  I would also suggest that parents are not to "drop" their child off and pick up later, as none of us are sure of the exact time-line of events.  The earlier the team gets in the parade line...the quicker their participation time will go!

Attire 

Football.....Game jersey and shorts

Cheer....cheer uniform or cheer top and shorts....whatever Kim Lawson decides, please be uniform

Coaches/Team Mom....coach shirt

Parents....Madison Patriots shirt if possible

*****

The teams will need to have a truck/flat bed to ride on.  Cheer may consider combining all teams if they can all fit on whatever vehicle is selected.
Permission slips....Team Moms will collect and turn their entire group's slips NLT 9/20/12....please DO NOT bring individual slips to the concession stand....it is difficult for us to keep up with the slips.  If a child does not have a permission slip, they ARE NOT to participate under any circumstances.  EACH participant needs a permission slip.  A "community" slip per family is unacceptable!
*****
Parents should ensure that their child has eaten and is well hydrated for the parade.  The child may want to bring along a water bottle, etc.
Teams are welcome to throw candy, goody bags, etc.  A poster board/sign with the team name on it taped and/or balloons on the vehicle would be great!  Of course, Patriot spirit is expected!  Most of all, the kids should have fun! As a parade participant, each player/cheerleader is representing MAA.  The MAA Code of Conduct is also in effect.
*****
Please review the parade safety policy located in the "Handouts" section before your child participates in the parade.
