    In the Westonka School District, homecoming is something special. On top of preparing for the big game, White Hawks football players spend Homecoming Week reading to primary school students and presenting letters and jerseys to influential teachers.

Musicians wielding everything from brass instruments to wastebasket drums and kazoos perform with pride in the annual homecoming parade.
