Homecoming events are set
Homecoming week is approaching at Kings, and the district is gearing up for a week-long celebration.
This year’s Homecoming Dance is 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8 in the King’s High School gymnasium. The theme this year is “Music Through the Knight, Don’t Stop The Music!” Tickets for homecoming go on sale Oct. 3-7.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg …
KHS Senior Class President Emily Hovis (above, right) discussed how the theme was decided.
“We basically just threw out ideas and then narrowed it down to the top three. Then student council took a vote, and it was pretty much unanimous on the one we all loved.”
KHS teacher Lisa King, student council adviser, said she loves organizing dances.
“I love doing this, it’s fun,” she said. “We get to do a lot of different activities, and this is my first time in a long time organizing homecoming. I used to be the student council person from 1999 to 2005. I took a break when I had my son.”
The week leading up to homecoming is full of many events including, Spirit Week, which leads to a pep rally at the high school on Friday.
Student Body President Haley McCrory (above, left) said the theme was a team decision.
“I led the meetings when we discussed possible themes and dress up days, so I just led discussion. All officers, for the most part, had equal contributions to the process. We are still working on getting different decorations for the dance that go with the theme.”
The dance will cap off a week of celebratory events:
Wednesday Oct. 5 is the 21st annual Fun Run, held by the Cross Country team. The run starts at 6:15 p.m. Registration is $15 dollars and includes a T-shirt.
