2023 Homecoming Preparations
Story by Areesa Steele – Editor-in-Chief
One of the best weeks of the year is homecoming. Many students participate in all of the activities offered throughout homecoming week. Some of the activities include spirit week, homecoming parade, football game, and the homecoming dance. Student council is in charge of planning out the entire week and themes for homecoming.
“There’s three different committees, there’s advertising committee, hallway decorating, and dance decorating. Hallway decorating committee puts all the decorations up and gets ready for that. The dance committee decorates the gym the morning of,” Avaya Hall, junior, said.
Many students look forward to being able to participate in these activities. One of the biggest festivities is the spirit days.
“Monday is dress as your favorite artist, Tuesday is dress 90s, Wednesday is twin day, Thursday is dress as a movie or TV character, and Friday is bronco gear,” Hall said.
Once the planning has happened, Student Council advertises to the student body. One of the vital pieces of information needed for homecoming week is homecoming night. Student Council takes a vote on the best theme for the dance and plans it out from there.
“This year the homecoming theme is VMAs. Everyone makes their own slides and pitches their own themes and then we make an anonymous voting form and count up the votes and get it approved by the office,” Hall said.
Other than the pre-homecoming festivities, homecoming night is what most students look forward to. The dance will be held in the commons on Sep. 30 from 8-10 p.m. Be sure to plan your best attire and have a great night.
