The Homecoming Festivities will begin Mon., Oct. 27th with the traditional parade that will return to its original route of starting in front of KWHS at 6:00 p.m., heading north turning on to Kennedy Drive ending at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium.  There, the skits will take place on the field during the evening Spirit Night.  The Homecoming Game is Fri., Oct. 31st at 7:00 p.m.  The school realizes this is Halloween, but scheduling did not allow for any leeway in the date of our final game.   We will provide treats at the entry way for youngsters that come in costume.
