Homecoming?

If you have a high schooler does your school have Homecoming? Do they have a football game? A dance? Are your kids going? Our small midwestern community is huge on high school football. The homecoming game is Friday, Sept. 23 and the dance is Saturday the 24th. I haven't been to a high school football game in years - Justin only did band through sophomore year so I guess the last Homecoming game I went to would have been in the fall of 2006. The boys each went to a couple Homecoming dances - a couple with a group of friends and each went to at least one with their current high school 'true love'.

We do not have high school homecoming here. Didn't have that when I was in school either. Plus,high school sports are not a big deal here; no marching bands & not that many spectators at games. It is important to the players,of course. But it is not important to the non-players.

The universities do have homecoming. I don't think it is a big thing at the colleges.

Homecoming is pretty popular at the high schools here in Tampa.

Our local high school does everything, dances, parades, games, pep rallies, bonfires, etc.... My dd went to 2 dances her freshman year and HATED them. She never went back. She has done the parade (well, once when she was injured and could not go to her tennis match!), bon fires and pep rallies in the past. She and her friends are going to the dance this year, just to go , we jsut got new shoes this weekend. It is the weekend of October 3rd.

We have a homecoming parade on Friday afternoon before the Friday night game, and the dance is on Saturday.

Jordyn is a junior. They have a homecoming game (Sept. 30) and have some festivities during the week at school, including a big pep rally and the homecoming court, but they do not have a dance.

High school dances seem to be more of a girl thing here too - my DSs only went when they had a girlfriend, but my DD never missed a single one.
