The annual DJHS Homecoming parade will proceed from Indian Run Methodist Church down Brand Road to the DJHS Southeast parking lot.

Jerome High School is partnering up with its feeder schools for family tailgates at home games this fall. Middle school night is homecoming... FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22nd vs Hilliard Darby - it's a NEON theme.
Check out the details below. Welcome Grizzell and Karrer MS and Go Celts!
These tailgates are for the entire Dublin community, so spread the word. Each home game, we want to "Fill the Field" outside the stadium with as many fans as possible before the game.
As with any event, we need volunteers. Please sign up to bring a dish to share. Have your dish at Jerome by 5:15 pm in a disposable container please. It's important that you RSVP, even if you can't bring something so we have the right amount of food.
Come to the tailgate following the homecoming parade, be fed and happy. Join the DJ, marching band, cheerleaders and our great fans as we cheer on our Celts. The tailgate starts at 5:30 on the NW side of the school, along the sidewalk that leads from the school to the stadium. Families are encouraged to bring chairs or any other tailgate necessities. Food, music and general tailgate atmosphere will already be in place by Jerome parents. Wear green/gold or Neon spirit wear!
Be LOUD, Be PROUD, Be THERE!!!
