Homecoming week is October 4-8, 2021! Wauwatosa East will be hosting our homecoming dance on Saturday, October 9, 2021 from 7 to 10 pm in the Wauwatosa East Large Gym.
Homecoming week begins on Monday, October 4th and goes through Friday, October 8th. During homecoming week, students have the opportunity to participate in “spirit days”. Our spirit days are as follows: Monday, October 4th is “Wild West”, Tuesday, October 5th is “Generational Day”, Wednesday, October 6th is “Pirate Day”, Thursday, October 7th is “Mama Mia!”, and Friday, October 8th is “Red and White Day.”
Tickets for the homecoming dance are on sale now and will be sold until Thursday, October 7th. Tickets will be sold during both lunch periods. The cost of a ticket will be fifteen (15) dollars OR ten (10) dollars + two boxes of granola bars.
TICKET SALES ARE NOW CLOSED.
If a student wishes to bring a guest that is a non-East student, the East student will need to pick up a guest form in the main office. This form, along with proof of the guest’s vaccination, must be provided at the time of ticket purchase. Proof of vaccination can be in the form of a CDC vaccination card or WIR record. Photocopies of either the CDC vaccination Card or WIR record will be accepted. Wauwatosa East students are not required to be vaccinated.
Our homecoming parade will begin at City Hall at 6:15 pm on Friday, October 8th and will end at Hart Park. The parade is scheduled to arrive before the start of the football game. Parade participants will need to arrive at City Hall no later than 4:45 pm on October 8th so we can get in order and prepare vehicles.
This year, we will be modifying the homecoming court to be “homecoming royalty”. Two students per each grade level will represent their class as homecoming royalty. Students will nominate themselves on Wednesday, September 29th during their advisory period and teachers will vote based on those nominations by Friday, October 1st. Students who will represent their class as homecoming royalty will be notified via their school email by Wednesday, October 6th. Students that are representing their class as homecoming royalty will be recognized during halftime at the football game on Friday, October 8 and will need to be in attendance at the game (at least until their name is read and they take the field).
