Students, staff, and community members will pull out their spirit wear for the annual Leopard Friday’s events.

After an early release at 12:15 p.m. the free community event will run 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. with a community pep rally starting at 6:30 p.m. in the courtyard.

“We have been preparing all week and I can’t wait to perform,” freshman cheerleader Mona Habibi said.

The varsity football game against Lake Dallas kickoff at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in the student store for $3. However, if students buy a ticket at the game they will be $7.

“I’ve never been to Leopard Friday but I’m excited to see the football game and the Majestics,” freshman Megan White said.

The school also has a barbecue catered for anyone who comes to support the teams from Dickeys BBQ. A $15 meal ticket must be purchased to get a plate for the food line. The food line is in the cafeteria on campus, and the seating will either be at the lunch tables inside or the tables outside near the back door to the courtyard.

In addition, the students, faculty, and others from the community will be hosting booths in the courtyard before the game showcasing different clubs, teams, and groups.

“I’m painting faces at the Lady Leopards Soccer booth to support our program, ”  junior Rachel Willmann said.
