Homecoming Spirit Themes and Activities

There will be a wide variety of spirit theme days and activities throughout Homecoming Week at Kearney High School. Schedules can be downloaded below. Questions about Homecoming at KHS can be directed to Student Council Sponsor Brittini Starzl (starzlb@ksdr1.net).

The Homecoming Parade will begin at 2 p.m. A link to a map of the parade route is included below. Please note that a permission form must be completed by every Kearney School District student who will be participating in the Homecoming Parade.
