Holly, MI — October 23, 2021

Holly Area Schools celebrated the return of Homecoming this month with a week-long celebration that culminated with a first-of-its-kind outdoor dance at Holly High School. The outdoor dance and other Homecoming activities were part of the district’s commitment to a safe return to the annual fall celebration.

“The return of Homecoming was the result of weeks of planning by our Broncho students, families, and staff to help ensure a safe celebration for our entire community,” said Scott Roper, Holly Area Schools superintendent. “Broncho Pride was on full display throughout Homecoming week, the result of our continued work with our community to provide a safe, nurturing learning environment that helps all students succeed.”

This year’s Homecoming theme was “A Night at the Fair.” The week-long celebration of all things Bronchos kicked off Oct. 4 with the juniors vs. seniors Powder Puff football game, followed by the Homecoming parade and football game against Kearsley on Oct. 8, and outdoor dance on Oct. 9. The dance was held outside the high school in tents.
