Homecoming Dance and Parade - Olivia Denny

            Homecoming Dance and Parade 

    Homecoming is a semi-formal dance on September 24, the day after the Homecoming football game. This is the only dance that every grade level is able to attend. The theme this year is Tropical/ Hawaiian. The Student Council, sponsored by Tamara Mills, selected themes and organized the event. Tickets for the dance were sold before school in front of the VLC, and in the cafeteria during lunch. Tickets were $10 and were available from 9-6 to 9-16.

The annual Homecoming parade goes through hour different streets in Mooresville, beginning at the high school. Main roads are blocked off, ensuring the safety of students. “ So we will have four floats, one for each class and the theme is pioneer paradise and each class's interpretation of it. All of the elementary school student councils are marching and various other clubs like drama club will also march” Mills said. Parade floats are constructed by the Student Council, there is a float representing the theme of the game. There’s  a float for every class (freshman, sophomore, junior and senior), a cheerleading float and lastly the Homecoming winners of each grade.
