Fox Chapel Area School District will celebrate Oct. 6 with skits, carnival games and a giant slide prior to the homecoming football game.

Themed “Decades,” the homecoming festivities are open to the public at the upper field of the high school campus along Field Club Road.

A carnival will kick off at 4 p.m. with inflatables and a free petting zoo that includes a baby zebra and camel. Pony rides will be available for a small fee. Music from students and faculty will be featured and there will be food trucks.

Students in all grades will continue the tradition of performing skits at 6 p.m. in the stadium prior to the Foxes taking on Hampton at 7 p.m. in the homecoming game. A king and queen will be crowned and skit winners will be announced at halftime of the game.

Game admission is $3 for students and $5 for adults. Senior citizens with a district gold card get in for free.

Parking is available at the high school and at O'Hara Elementary, a few blocks away on Cabin Lane. Members of the homecoming court are seniors Liam Botos, Luke Brown, Abbe Cohen, Cooper Collins, Cara Levicoff, Cassandra Oliva, Brianna Smith and William Zytnick.

Court attendants are juniors Justin Breen and Kristen Friday, sophomores Christian Fitch and Grace Sisson and freshmen Melina Bradley and Ethan Flanders.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a snack item to donate to the district's Backpacks for Hunger program and for All of Us Care's after-school program. The collection is being hosted by the Fox Chapel Educators Association.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
