Illinois Valley Central High School is transforming into a magical place with the theme of Disney for IVC Homecoming 2011.

Class dress up days

Class dress up days began on Monday with twin day, followed by nerd day on Tuesday. Wednesday is class color day.

On Thursday, IVC students will show off their creative sides by dressing with the theme of Disney in mind. On Friday, the students will dress in the school colors of maroon and grey to cheer on the IVC Grey Ghost football team to victory.

Schedule of events

Wednesday: Homecoming activities begin at 6 p.m. with Class Competitions at the school.

Thursday: Homecoming Skit Night is at 6 p.m., followed by the pep rally and bonfire. The king and queen, who will be announced that evening, traditionally light the bonfire.
