What is "homecoming"?
"Homecoming" in this context refers to a week-long event which is a tradition in many high schools in the United States. The term "homecoming" means to "come home", and so it is a way of welcoming home alumni that have recently graduated. Normally this is celebrated with a big football game, and then a homecoming dance for the students to go to at the school.
