As the calendar turns to October, the halls are filled with the anticipation of homecoming week.

All over Carlmont campus, ASB posted colorful posters and flyers advertising the homecoming dance, which will take place on Oct. 15. The theme of the dance is vibes, referencing the mood of the ’60s.

“The dance this year has a ’60s hippie theme,” said junior ASB Spirit Hype Commissioner Jake Stulbarg. “An easy way to dress up is to wear tie-dye.”

Homecoming is the only casual dance held at Carlmont, and each student gets the chance to participate and dress up.

Tickets for the dance will be sold in the quad for two weeks starting on Oct. 3. They will cost $10 with a PAL sticker and $15 without.

Many students are having a tough time deciding whether or not to go to the dance.

“I plan to go to the homecoming football game, but I don’t know if I want to go to the dance,” said junior Erin Schoemehl. “I think the dance theme is cute, though.”

Despite the doubts of many students, ASB urges everyone to go to the dance and gain a new experience.

“Dances are a huge part of high school,” said senior ASB Recognition Commissioner Lexi Posey. “One year, I didn’t go to the dance and I really regret it. You only get four homecomings.”

Whether they plan to attend or not, the homecoming dance is a fun opportunity for students to bond and get more involved in school events. 

“Last year, when I went to the dance as a freshman, I had a lot of fun. It definitely made me feel closer to the school and it’s something cool to do on a Saturday night,” said sophomore ASB Spirit Hype Commissioner Kayla Gustafson.
