Homecoming Week

Homecoming is more than just the dance itself. Homecoming is a week-long event, simply known as Homecoming Week. All week, each day there is a new theme and they typically correspond with the Homecoming dance’s theme. Everyday there’s at least one event happening that has Homecoming involved. “Wash’s Homecoming week just hypes everyone up, in general. It gets everyone pumped up,” CiCi Johnson, ‘21 said. Washington kicks off the week with the Homecoming Court assembly, which presents the Homecoming Court candidates. The following day, Washington holds their annual Homecoming Parade and bonfire. Activities and clubs promote their activity by having a parade float and the cheerleaders, dance team, and a band provide entertainment for the night. “Homecoming week is special and it gets everyone into our school’s spirit.” Haven Johnson, ‘22 said. Two days later, the Homecoming game happens and this year it’s against Bettendorf.


On Saturday, from seven to eleven, the Homecoming dance takes place in Washington’s cafeteria. This year’s theme is Outer Space and it’s going to be out of this world!
