Homecoming is quickly approaching, and with it comes sports events, celebrations and traditions. 

Below is a guide to everything that is going on during Oct. 3-7. 

Theme and Dress Up Days

This year the theme for homecoming week is, “North Polk Battle of the Stars.” This is a nod to a Hollywood theme, as well as the fact that the football team is playing Ballard.

Monday: Pajama
