It's Homecoming Season!

Share your homecoming pics and traditions using #APSHC17

Part of the homecoming festivities at La Cueva included a staff vs student dodgeball game.

It's not every day you see football players in cheerleader skirts (thank goodness). Or that you get to play dodgeball against your teachers. Or dress up like your parents when they were in high school. 

Then again, it's not unheard of this time of year. In fact, it's tradition. Homecoming tradition.

Each APS high school has its own homecoming traditions -- parades, carnivals, dress up days, class competitions. The week's festivities culminate in the traditional presentation of the court, crowning of the king and queen and -- of course -- the homecoming football game often attended by alumni.

La Cueva kicks off homecoming season the week of Aug. 28. Lots of activities are taking place including a faculty vs. student dodgeball game and a community pep rally and Powder Puff football game at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30 on the LCHS football field.
