Homecoming Week Overview


Max Kushner, Managing Editor

Homecoming Week at Park City High School begins on Monday, September 13. There will be many events throughout the week for students to attend and participate in.


This past school year, many of these events did not occur due to COVID-19, but students are excited and ready for them to be back and more normal.


The week starts off with a Welcome Back assembly on Monday morning at Dozier Field. Tuesday there will be the “Powder Puff” Football game at 7 pm on Dozier Field, where junior and senior girls play flag football. The “Powder Buff” volleyball game will be on Wednesday, where junior and senior boys compete against each other. This will be at 7 pm in the first gym. On Thursday there will be a bonfire in the Junior Parking Lot at 7 pm. A homecoming parade will be held on Main Street at 1 pm on Friday.  There will be a tailgate that same day at 5:30 pm in the Senior Parking Lot before the Homecoming game at 7 pm where Park City will play against Highland. The Homecoming Dance will occur on Saturday from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Utah Film Studio.


In addition to the events, each day of the week also has a theme that students can dress up for. Monday is preppy, Tuesday is tropical-themed, Wednesday is western, Thursday is throwback day, and Friday is Homecoming shirt day.

The theme for the Homecoming Dance is “A Night Under the Stars.”


“Tessa Campbell came up with the theme this year, it is always the senior leadership team that comes up with it,” said Jessica Lanoue, a teacher at the high school and the advisor for Student Council. 


“We had also originally chosen this theme because we had thought the dance was going to be outside,” said Lanoue.


Many students noticed that there was a change in venue for the dance. It was originally supposed to be in the Senior Parking Lot at the high school, but due to weather and temperature concerns, it was moved to the Utah Film Studio.


“We were really worried about the weather, and luckily we were able to work with partners over at the Film Studio, who are going to help us keep the garage doors open to increase airflow and keep it as safe as possible due to COVID,” said Lanoue.


None of the events will have COVID restrictions, but masks are highly recommended.
