Dubuque Senior High School’s official Homecoming theme is “Blast from the Past,” inspired by past decades and many prior fads becoming trendy again!

This year’s homecoming week will be a four-day week. That’s right! There will be no school for students on Friday, October 4th, due to it being an Inservice day for the district.

The Homecoming Assembly and parade will take place on the Thursday of that school week.

The Homecoming football game will take place on Friday, October 5th against Waterloo West.

The Dance is set for Saturday, October 5th in Nora Gymnasium.
