Tis’ the season for warm sweaters, apple picking, and terrifying haunted house rides; what could be better? One simple solution to that question would be: Homecoming! As the first month of school fades to October, there is always one thing on every high school student’s mind: ‘What in the world should I wear to homecoming?’ Now, all jokes aside, this high school event is (in my opinion) the best that the school has to offer. I am a senior here at HHS and I would like to cordially invite students of all ages to this event, as it is going to be a night to remember. Even as cliché as that may sound, it’s true. This is an event that truly introduces you into the whole “High School Experience.” Whether it be meeting new friends or seeing old ones on the dance floor, there is so much that can be taken from it.
In years past homecoming has raked in a lot of kids. The exciting festivities range from not only the thrilling football game but to the wacky and crazy music that may be played. I remember one year students cleared a circle for others to have a dance off, everyone’s jaws dropped for that one student who could break dance. Another year, everyone in the gym was swinging their arms dancing to ‘Gangnum Style.’ At other times I remember my friends and I would always be in a group dancing and having a great time. There is a lot to be taken from this dance: the memories, the superb food, the pictures, and most importantly; the dancing. What’s better than food and dancing with your friends? Now I understand homecoming isn’t for everyone, but I would suggest attending this year whether it be your first, or last year attending. If none of that has sold you, just know that I have never heard of someone regretting going to the Hanover High School homecoming.
For this event it is highly recommended for you guys to dress up in a suit and tie, or dress pants and dress shoes. For you girls, it is simply a semi-formal dress and usually heels. Before the dance begins students will be breathalyzed at the door and will be motioned to gather around the cafeteria to take pictures and meet up with friends. After, doors will open and the dance will commence. The dance usually runs about three hours, 7:30 to 10:30. In years past we have had no problems and safety has been well-maintained. The dance is a safe and friendly place where all students are welcome. So what are you waiting for? Get up and practice those dance moves! Homecoming is just around the corner!
The dance will be held on October 26th in the high school gymnasium. Tickets are on sale now and are $30! Get yours before it’s too late!
