Homecoming week is an excitement-packed couple of days that students look forward to from the first day of school. Each day is accompanied with a sporting event, hallway decorating, and spirit theme dress-up days for students. With this year’s theme, “Decades,” our school was transformed into a beautiful display of the past, and the gym was barely recognizable after being decorated for coronation.

Even though the week was carefree for most of the school, student council and the homecoming court seemed to have a million things to do in a little amount of time. From the second our names were displayed on the shelf at the kickoff assembly, we were given a list of things we needed to have done before school on Monday. For girls, we needed to have our dresses for coronation picked out by the next morning. Considering most of us didn’t have our dresses for the dance yet, this was a major shock.

I remember looking across at all the other girls on court and feeling slightly relieved when they looked just as surprised as I did. Nonetheless we were all honored to be on court and ready to begin the most exciting week of the school year.

Mr. Brown gave us all a packet of information that explained our duties for the week and all we had to do was make sure we were there. Because there were so many events we had to attend, we had to make sure we were getting all of our work done in school.

“Apart from the honor of representing the student body, it was really fun dressing up with my fellow court members everyday. It was a little stressful since I had to make sure I didn’t fall behind in school, but the experience was worth it,” said Tayyaba Ali.

When Friday came along, everyone was busy setting up the gym and getting ready for coronation. Mr. Brown made sure all of the finishing touches were perfect and helped the court practice walking down the gym before we had to do it in front of the whole school. You could feel the excitement bubbling in everyone around you.

“On [the day of] Coronation, I couldn’t wait to get all dressed up and walk in front of the school. I was so nervous that I was going to trip, but it was actually so much fun,” said Molly Salerno.

In the end, we all had a blast at the dance, and the memories we made throughout the week will never be forgotten. I am so lucky to have been chosen to be on the 2017 Homecoming Court with such a wonderful group of people. None of this would be possible without the amazing work of student council and the direction of Mr. Brown.
