Homecoming activities announced for Westfield Area High School

Homecoming 2018 will be the week of Oct. 1 with the homecoming football game against Adams-Friendship on Friday, Oct. 5th. This year’s theme is Harry Potter as it’s the 20th anniversary of the Novel Harry Potter.


This year, classes will be competing for the “Homecoming Cham-pionship.” Classes will accrue points during the week through participation in dress-up days, class games, float & banner rankings, dodge ball, boys’ volleyball, and girls’ powder puff football.

The class that wins the Homecoming Championship will receive a Pizza Ranch & soda party during Flex Time the following week.

Boys’ Volleyball and Girls’ Powder Puff finals will take place on Friday, Oct. 5 morning, and the community is invited to enjoy the festivities.

Finally, the Homecoming Dance will be Saturday, Oct. 6. Students have requested this change for several years to allow them more time to prepare for the dance, go out for dinner, take pictures, and to make the dance more formal than it has been in the past.

General Information

Homecoming activities will take place toward the end of the school day on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of Homecoming week. Dress-up days are scheduled for every day of the week, as well. Friday, Oct. 5 is a day of various activities, decorating for Saturday’s dance, float building, Boys’ Volleyball Finals, Girls’ Powder Puff Finals, and the Homecoming parade.
