Homecoming 2018

For complete rules and registration, visit:
Pre-registration for the cookoff ends September 25 so get your entries in today!

Mums are a Texas homecoming staple.  We love Texas, we love mums, but we also respect the instructional time in the classroom and the peace in knowing we will not be putting on our UPS hats in the office, playing delivery man to each student receiving a mum.  The truth is that they are a huge distraction to what our students and teachers are working to accomplish in the classroom. As a result, mums, garters, and homecoming flowers will not be allowed during the school day or during the pep rally throughout homecoming week .  Any student who brings a mum or garter will be required to leave it in their locker until dismissal.

Do you want to hear Apache Football on the Radio?
JD Rose, from the Texas Radio Morning Show, is looking for 4 sponsors at $500 per sponsorship to broadcast the 3 home Apac he games and on the road playoff games. The sponsorship will include 30 second commercials during the game broadcasts and bonus commercials during JD's morning show. If you are interested in sponsoring Apaches on the radio, please contact JD Rose at 830-329-6608 or email at
