This week is homecoming for Coyle High School and there will be a pep assembly on Friday at 2:45 p.m., but the week also serves as a reminder for a precious girl who passed away a year ago.
Like all spirit weeks leading up to the big game, there is a daily fun “dress up” theme. Monday was celebrity day, Tuesday was 80’s, Wednesday was jammies and today was Madysen Simmons Day, as everyone wore purple in her memory.
Simmons, 8, passed away last year on this day due to complications with an asthma condition.
Friday is blue and white day, but Thursday is the day everyone will celebrate.
