ASB drums up excitement for homecoming

Kyra Rilee Buchholz
Posters along the halls of Carlmont encourage students to buy their tickets for the dance.

This October, ASB began preparing for the homecoming celebration. The event begins on Oct. 16, when dance tickets are up for sale, and ends on Oct. 28, when the dance takes place.

Students will have the opportunity to participate and perform in the homecoming assembly in many ways. Cheer is an example of this.

“I am cheering for the homecoming assembly and am very excited to express my extroverted personality through my performance. I love being involved in school spirit and cheering on others who perform,” said Jianna Lloyd, a sophomore and cheerleader.

The theme of this year’s assembly is “In It To Win It.”

ASB has worked to make homecoming week an enjoyable experience for the student body.

Joe Sison, the sophomore class president, said, “ASB spends hours upon hours working on homecoming. As the class president, it is my responsibility to represent the sophomore class throughout the week, whether that’s by preparing the float or by organizing powderpuff. I’m always trying to see how I can contribute to the class and make everyone’s experience better.”

Carlmont’s halls will soon be decorated with posters and advertisements made by ASB members.

For the past couple of weeks, we have been working on the homecoming assembly and spirit week. We have been making the huge poster paintings that go on the gym walls during the assembly, which is divided according to each class,” said Cathy Skinner, a sophomore who works in the ASB art commission. 

Tickets for the homecoming dance will be sold in the quad near the ASB room and are priced at $10 with a PAL sticker and $15 without a sticker. The dance will take place at 8 p.m. on Oct. 28 and is the only casual-attire dance at Carlmont.

Many students debate on whether or not to attend the dance. Some, excited by the event, have already decided to attend.

“It’s my first homecoming dance, and it seems like lots of fun to go with all of your friends. I am also performing in the assembly since I am part of the cheer team. I am excited, but I am also kind of nervous since the whole school will be watching,” said freshman Tara Bakhtegan.

However, some don’t see the appeal in attending the dance.

“I am not going to the homecoming dance; it seems like it is more popular among the younger students,” said Jack Greco, a senior and transfer student from Serra High School.

While some upperclassmen prefer to attend formal or prom, underclassmen, who are not able to attend prom without an invite from upperclassmen, tend go to homecoming.
