Excitement is building around the high school, and it’s got everything to do with Spirit Week and Homecoming!

The annual celebration of Wildcat pride is right around the corner, kicking off on Monday, October 2, and students are prepping for five days of fun and camaraderie at both in- and out-of-school events. Of course, the three mainstays of every Warwick homecoming weekend are the parade, the homecoming game, and homecoming dance, all of which will be on Saturday, October 7.

Here’s everything you need to know about WVHS Spirit Week and Homecoming 2023. We look forward to seeing everyone along the parade route and in the grandstands at the game.
