The halls were abuzz as the 2021 Homecoming Theme was announced as “Press Play!” Homecoming Week is scheduled for October 18-22 this year, and we can’t wait to enjoy a week full of fun! Be sure to mark your calendar for Friday, October 22, when the campus comes to life with the Homecoming Parade, Pep Rally, Fall Carnival, and Homecoming Game.

The carnival takes place from 3:30pm to 6:30pm, followed by the Homecoming Football Game at 7:00pm at PSAC! We look forward to sharing all of the fun Homecoming festivities with the entire TFA community and hope you save the date for this exciting week! While there are exciting activities for every age, Upper School students are encouraged to enjoy the Homecoming Dance. Be sure to read the Homecoming Packet for details on activities for every grade level. You can also view the full carnival map below!
