It’s Homecoming week at Postville High School and, in spite of a few changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the students are looking forward to celebrating their Pirate Pride.

The week has been filled with special dress-up days as students and staff alike have shown their school spirit. Monday was Lei’d Back Day as the halls were filled with young and old dressed in their best Hawaiian outfits. Tuesday, saw students and staff dressed in specific colors for “Togetherness Tuesday.” Each grade level in the high school was assigned a specific color.

Thursday is picture day at Postville Schools. “Dress to Impress” is the theme as individual school pictures will be taken for all students. Thursday evening a small parade will be held on the school campus beginning at 6:30 p.m.. The parade will include the football team, the Homecoming candidates, and a few surprises. The community is welcome to attend the parade which begins at the bus garage and, staying on school district property, will end at the football field. Following the parade, a community pep rally will be held on the football field. The Homecoming royalty will be announced, and the king and queen crowned, during the pep rally.

Friday is Pirate Pride Friday and everyone is asked to dress in their favorite red and black clothing. The more red and black gear the better.

The week’s activities will culminate with the Pirates meeting Clayton Ridge on the gridiron at 7 p.m. Go Big Red!

All alumni, fans, students and staff are invited to come out and urge the Pirates on to a victory.

Due to the pandemic there will not be a Homecoming Dance this year.
