Homecoming Preparations in Full Swing
By Naiesha Thobe
The week of Homecoming has finally arrived! Talk of the game, the
parade, and of course, the dance are only a few topics squirreling
through the hallways of Greenville High School. Naturally, most people
only care about those three events, but there is much going on for
Homecoming week that is often overlooked.
First off, the school clubs unite! Meetings once a day, every day, as
each club hurries to find decorations for their respective float in the
awaited Homecoming Parade. On top of finding a particular icon to fit
the theme (this year, it’s Welcome to Wonderland), each club also has
the task of creating hallway decorations that fit the theme and the
club. Needless to say, Cheshire Cats, Mad Hatters, and all things
Wonderland-ful will be soon littering the hallways to support our
Secondly, the school also hosts Dress-Up Days the week of Homecoming -
Monday, for instance, is camo day, while Wednesday students are
expected to wear their respective class colors. (The Senior’s color is
black; what does this even mean?) Participation is widely found
throughout the school as tension and excitement mount; at least, in
past years, it has.
Talk of the upcoming game and parade is also heard, but the main
concern is the Homecoming Dance. Tickets have been on sale at the
school for a few days now, and will continue to be sold. Everybody
wonders to themselves (and to anybody who will listen) what to wear and
who to go with and if the dance will be a success.
Only one thing’s for sure for this year’s Homecoming: with a theme like
Wonderland, anything is possible!
