Homecoming: Good Times and Memories That Last Forever
While Homecoming got its start on college campuses as a fall celebration of the first football game of the season where alumni would return to their alma maters, it eventually spread to high schools. The traditions of high school Homecomings across the country include a parade with floats, royalty election with the crowning of a king and queen, pep rally, alumni reception, mums and garters, all capped off with a big dance. Homecoming is the main event for students and alumni designed to generate enthusiasm for the school. Homecoming week is a great time to come out and enjoy some exciting high school football, get a sneak peek of the band UIL show, enjoy performances by the Blue Angels and Cheerleaders, and soak up the fun and fellowship of a community united as Lobos. This year’s Homecoming theme is “Little Elm Where the Magic Happens.” We would like to encourage all current students, alumni, parents, and community members to participate in this week’s homecoming activities.

The college fair was hosted by the Little Elm chapter of DECA, an association of marketing students. DECA members arrived up to two hours before school to make sure the gyms were ready to receive our guests and then served as hosts and hostesses to the colleges throughout their visit. Little Elm's award winning DECA chapter consists of over 120 students focused on careers in Business, Marketing, Finance and Entrepreneurship and is annually one of the largest chapters in the DFW area.
