Winter Homecoming is early this year, coming up right before exam week. If you are interested in being on the junior/senior court, you need to act quickly! Voting happens next week. From Jessica Allen, here is the rundown of important Winter Homecoming information.
Winter Homecoming is Friday January 18th, 2019 against East Lansing.
Homecoming Dance: Saturday January 19, 2019 7-10 p.m. in the cafeteria. Tickets $5.00 and will be sold during high school lunches the week of January 7-11, 2019. Students with suspensions for fighting/violence, alcohol/drugs, or discipline referrals for cussing out/threatening staff members since October 1 will not be allowed to purchase a ticket to the dance. Additional information for students:
11th and 12th graders can apply to be representatives on the court.
There will be three Junior “couples”, and four Senior “couples” (the term “couple” is only used because two representatives will be paired to walk together, no romantic intent).
The entire 9-12 grade student body will vote for a Junior class “Prince and Princess,” and a Senior class “King and Queen” on January 17 during a designated class hour to be announced.
Students interested in being on the court must meet the requirements listed on the application and turn in their completed application by Thursday 12/20/18 so the court can be announced before break. Applications are available on the student events bulletin board outside of Mrs. Allen’s office or see her for an application.
If there is an overwhelming amount of students that turn in applications for court that meet all the criteria, there will be a student vote in the 11th/12th grade classes to narrow it down to the seven couples on Friday 12/21/18.
If you were on Fall court, you may not run for Winter court. If you ran for Fall but did not make the court, you may apply for Winter court.
If you were on Fall court or make it on to the Winter court you may still run for prom King/Queen if you wish. The two are unrelated this year.
