Preview: 2023 Retro Homecoming Dance


On Oct. 28, students will gather in the Healy Gym from 7-10 p.m. for the Homecoming Dance. This dance, a yearly tradition, will take place after a week of spirit days at school and a football game on Friday night.

Students must do a few things before the dance to ensure they can get in the night it occurs.

Mrs. Franzen, US Social Studies teacher and one of the planners of Homecoming explains what these requirements are, “Students must sign a drug and alcohol form which consents to a breathalyzer test, and they must pay $25.” 

Each year, Homecoming has a different theme, selected by a group of students and teachers. 

“I do know the theme is Retro for the dance. That should be the only major difference, but homecoming dances typically feel the same year to year”, said US Dean of Students Mr. Kevin Jacobsen. 

This retro theme will inspire many decorations and songs at the dance, “We have a DJ and a dance floor, disco balls, and club lights”, shared Mrs. Franzen. 

Homecoming usually consists of multiple things every year to ensure students have a fun time at the dance. 

Mr. Jacobsen lists all of the different activities that will be at the Homecoming dance, “There will be drinks, snacks, music, dancing, and the crowning of the ever-elusive Homecoming King and Queen.”

While each dance usually is pretty similar, food options as well as various other elements change to keep Homecoming exciting. 

“We did order a larger dance floor from the DJ, and we have açaí bowls, popcorn chicken, and Dunkin’ Donuts for food options”, Mrs. Franzen stated. 

The Homecoming dance is looked forward to every year by students and teachers alike. At the dance, students create bonds with classmates and peers that last throughout their high school years

Mr. Jacobsen explains the importance of the event, “It’s great to have an event for all grades to come together and have some fun.” 

At Homecoming, students will have a night of dancing, music, talking, and so much more. Teachers and students put lots of work into making this night a success, with a theme of retro being created and new food options. Students, be sure to wear your dresses and coats and have a great time at this year’s Homecoming dance.
