Homecoming Every year Nanakuli High and Intermediate School celebrates its homecoming with a week-long competition called Spirit Week. This is an event in which all separate classes from grades 7-12 compete with each other in various planned activities. There are different themes for each day of the week decided by NHIS's student government. This competition is usually concluded with Black and Gold day on the Friday of the homecoming game.
Along with its noon time festivities, Homecoming in Nanakuli High and Intermediate is usually accompanied by a parade on the afternoon of the Homecoming game. This parade starts from Mano Road and makes its way all the way up Nanakuli Valley into the NHIS's football field. Within this parade one can see the many various organizations within the school. There are mini floats made by each individual class that students from their respective classes march with in the procession to the school. Other than class floats, there is also a Homecoming court, which consist of class attendants (1 boy and 1 girl) from the 9-12th grade classes in addition to the Homecoming King and Queen and Mr. and Ms. Golden Hawk.
The Homecoming festivities come to its conclusion with the Varsity team's game and when the winners of the Spirit Week competition are announced at half time after the presentation of the Homecoming court. Homecoming is one of Nanakuli High and Intermediate School's major events not only within the school, but within the community as well.
