As of Monday, West Fargo High School students and staff have been actively celebrating Homecoming Week. Packers have been dressing up and participating in activities in order to show their school spirit, but the fun is not over yet.

Today is "Class Color Day" at the high school. Seniors are encouraged to wear white while juniors wear green and the sophomore class wears black.

The day will wrap up with the annual Powder Puff football game. Senior and junior girls will compete for the title of "Powder Puff Champions." The game will be played at the high school football field, and the public is invited to attend. Admission is $2 with proceeds to be used by the junior class for prom. Shortly before the Powder Puff game, a pep rally will be held at the school.

Tomorrow marks "Throwback Thursday" for the school, and students have two different home sporting events to attend and show their pride. The Packers volleyball team hosts the Wahpeton Huskies at 7 p.m. in the high school gymnasium, while the boys' soccer team host the Fargo North Spartans at Lodoen soccer complex at the same time. The golf, tennis and swim teams will be active in match-ups outside West Fargo.

The next day is "Packer Pride Friday," and will mark the end of Homecoming Week with West Fargo's football game against Grand Forks Central at 6 p.m. The homecoming dance will begin immediately after the game, and will last until 11 p.m.

West Fargo High School will also be represented in the West Fest Parade on Saturday, which will go along Sheyenne St. beginning at 1 p.m.
