Although the weather may not make it apparent, autumn is steadily on its way, bringing along sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and of course, homecoming. 

“[Homecoming] is a Halloween theme, but it’s not really cheesy with costumes and everything,” junior Lexi Ashby, Vice President of the junior class said. “It’s just the decorations that are kinda halloweenish, then it’s the typical homecoming where you dress up nicely.” 

As with other school events, officials are concerned with inappropriate behavior and are taking precautions to avoid altercations.  

“There will be no buses allowed, and if there are they have to be approved,” senior Laura Savage, member of E-Board said. “The reason for that is it has been one of the main things resulting in ATOSS in the past along with using substances and going over the edge, so that’s a big deal. Also with guest lists we have to have all of those approved by different schools. You have to get the form, fill it out, and the principal has to fill it out for both schools… Then we have a list of everyone who’s coming- you know, everyone who bought a ticket.” 

Although Homecoming themes are chosen by the school, E-Board creates everything that is put into the actual event itself, which explains why ticket prices are high in comparison to other schools. 

“We have to make and buy everything that goes into homecoming,” Laura continued. “…ours always has more props, more lights, more music, more djs and stuff; not to brag but we have the better homecomings than the other schools. They usually have the same playlist and reuse it while we bring in a new dj every single year which are always the best that we can get so they’re expensive. All the money that goes into homecoming tickets goes right back into the event, so it’s like a recycling rather than a savings.”
