Homecoming Tips and Information
Homecoming Tips DATE OR GROUP? Students DO NOT have to have a date to go to the dance Even students who have a date can go with a group Most groups are mixed with some students who have dates and some who do not Parents of those in the group can meet to determine dinner plans, transportation and after party plans Be sure to share phone numbers Most parents feel more comfortable when they meet their child’s friends’ parents
Homecoming Tips Dinner Tips Host a catered dinner for your child’s group Have everyone contribute money Have everyone bring a dish for the dinner Make reservations at a restaurant for your child’s friends Make them early—there are lots of groups out there! Pre-order meals if possible See if there is a set “Homecoming Menu” at the restaurant of choice
Homecoming Tips Photo Tips Be sure to get some casual shots of your child and their friends before they go to dinner Have all parents and kids meet at a scenic spot to take pictures Be sure to share with the other parents Suggest the kids take their formal portraits right when they arrive to avoid long lines
Homecoming Tips After Party Tips Not everyone will want to have an after party Ideas Swimming party Game party Times Square (call ahead to reserve space!) Just hanging out, talking or watching movies Make sure you have snacks for hungry teens Make sure your child’s after party is chaperoned by a parent
Homecoming Tips If your child does have a date, the guys pay for Girl’s mum Football tickets Dance tickets Corsage Dinner before the dance Half cost of the after party The guy should arrange transportation, make reservations, etc. (unless the girl decides to take that over!)
Homecoming Tips If your child does have a date, the girls pay for Guy’s garter Boutonniere Pictures for both guy and girl Half cost of the after party The girls like to be pampered – so cost for girls may include nails, hair and make up.

Simple Rules for Dating My Son/Daughter A simple rule for dating my son: I know how today’s ‘fashionable’ young woman likes to dress. When my son brings you home to meet us, if there are parts of your clothes that allow parts of your anatomy to show, we will take care of it before you leave. I have an extensive supply of duct tape and super glue. You see, I can’t take the chance of an accident happening when my son’s eyes pop out - he will need them both for medical school. A simple rule for dating my daughter: If you pull into my driveway and honk, you’d better be delivering a package, because you’re sure as heck not picking anything up!
