Photo Essay: The week-long celebration culminates with the Homecoming Dance

Dressed in their finest attire, students were ecstatic as they participated in the activities offered at the 2023 Homecoming dance on the evening of Oct. 21. This enchanting event was the grand finale of week-long festivities. Aside from the dance floor, many activities awaited, trying to engage every student. A caricature artist offered his artistic touch, the photo booths captured candid memories and various food trucks were parked on the outdoor basketball courts. The atmosphere buzzed excitedly from the air hockey tables, pool tables, karaoke and the infamous dance floor. The loud music and flashing lights inside and outside the gym set the tone for the evening. 

Sophomore Angelica Claire commented on what she enjoyed most about the dance. 

“[The dance] was mostly indoors this year, so we weren’t cold and the food was very good. I [have] to say I liked the doughnuts the best,” Claire said.

Claire also enjoyed the range of activities the dance had to offer.

“The caricature artist was fun, I saw my friends go there. I know a lot of people liked air hockey and definitely the photo booth,” Claire said.

Despite Claire enjoying the dance, next year, she hopes to see an improvement in the music.

“I think that if we make a playlist [the music would be better]. We could have the whole school involved on the playlist to get everyone’s opinions,” Claire said. 

Ending the exhilarating week strong, the Homecoming dance was the cherry on top of an event-packed week.
