Togas, pep rallies, flick on the field: Homecoming week is coming up soon which also means the dance is right around the corner.

“I am pretty excited for the dance,” senior Megan Lee said. “As a senior, I want to make sure we enjoy our last Homecoming.”
The theme of the dance is “Neverland.” According to Leadership President Rebecca Kindling, the theme came from, “five choices that we were considering and chose it based on how much we could do with the theme.”

Homecoming dance ticket sales began on Sept. 18 and will end on Oct. 6. The price for the tickets are now $20 for the second week.
This year for the first time, tickets are being sold online for $15 instead of $20 in school.
Tickets are $20 to make back the money being spent on decorations.
It is expected that 700 to 750 kids will be in attendance of the dance, and possibly even more for this year.
“We really want to encourage school spirit this year and Homecoming is great place to have all students come together,” Kindling said.
Leadership has been working everyday and during W-4 to make the decorations for every wall and to make the decorations look really nice.
“We have worked really hard on all types of decorations, so I know that the night will be amazing,” Kindling said.

For the decorations, the gym will be partially decorated. An entire wall will be dedicated to captain hook and his ship with a waterfall and the lost boys.

They are holding back on the rest of the details to allow students to be surprised and wondered by beautiful and creative designs.

“I really enjoyed the decorations last year which made the dance more fun,” Lee said. “It really made the experience so much better.”
