STUCO plans for Knights Around the World Homecoming Dance

Taking place on Sept. 23 and 24, the annual Homecoming game and dance are one week earlier than they were last year. Because fall break is longer this year, the weekends available for the dance are limited. Since the Homecoming football game is traditionally a home game the night before the dance, this limited the scheduling options further.

“Fall break is two weeks this year,” Activity Director Mike Janes said. “We didn’t want to put Homecoming around fall break, due to students going on vacation.”

Although the dance is earlier this year, StuCo did not feel rushed with preparations. Instead of waiting until last minute like they have in previous years, they’ve gotten most of the planning done early this year.

”Homecoming being earlier is a pretty neutral thing for StuCo because we were already prepared for Homecoming [in advance],” cabinet member Kaitlyn Stone said.

This year’s theme for Homecoming is Knights Around the World. StuCo is planning on decorating the dance with world monuments such as the Eiffel Tower.

”We have a good group of kids to work with this year,” StuCo sponsor Shelly Grimshaw said. “I know they will make it great.”
