“Around the World” Homecoming Week 2021

What is homecoming? Homecoming is a tradition in many high schools across the country to welcome new students and to welcome back former students. 


This year, homecoming week at Central is the week of the 20th. Parade and a bonfire will take place at McKinley Elementary School at 6:00 pm on Thursday, September 23rd. The homecoming game is against Bettendorf and will take place on Friday the 24th. The dance is at the River Center from 7:00 -10:00 pm on the 25th. Students must arrive by 8:00 pm to be able to enter. Recommended dress is semi-formal, which is short dresses for girls and a tie for boys. Nonbinary, genderfluid, transgender, agender, and genderqueer students may wear whichever of the options they are most comfortable with.
