Homecoming Week 2015

Homecoming is a time to celebrate the school you are attending. After you have graduated, it’s a time to go back, or “come home”, to your town and the campus, see old friends, and reminisce about your school days. Homecoming usually centers around a football game and is an annual tradition for most American high schools. The celebrations generally start within the school on Monday and last all the way through the weekend when the alumni show up.

It’s always a pleasure to have our alumni visit and talk about how things have changed and progressed since they attended school at NCS. As a matter of fact, with our school being in existence since 1978, Northlake has become a place where many of our alumni are now sending their own children to be educated - a second generation of Wolverines for some families. What a legacy!

Here are a few pictures from the week. Enjoy!

You will enjoy dinner, desserts, and an extensive silent and live auction with festive music for entertainment. This is a wonderful way to meet other NCS families and to join in the commUNITY.
