Emma Witzenberg challenges an opponent Monday during a homecoming dodgeball game at PCHS. Students also wore pajamas to launch homecoming activities, which will resume next Monday.

Severe cold weather that forced the cancellation of three school days also led Pella Christian High School to shift its homecoming plans to next week.

Tonight's basketball games against Dallas Center-Grimes will go on as scheduled, but won't be homecoming games.

Homecoming activities, which stopped early this week, will resume next Monday. The homecoming games will be played next Thursday vs. Oskaloosa.

"We value Homecoming at PCHS as an important school culture builder and want to make room for this important celebration," the school noted in its e-newsletter.
