Homecoming showcases current TV

Pageantry, music and food booths combined with current T.V. show-themed floats, will highlight the campus? 32nd Homecoming, on Oct 19.

Ani Paparigian, one of three junior princess nominees, anticipates the upcoming events leading up to the annual event. As the star of Ani Watch, Paparigian plans to incorporate her personal sense of style into her dress.

“I am so excited for Homecoming,” Paparigian said. “I love helping our class build our float. One of my favorite parts about Homecoming is spirit week because I get to dress up in different a theme each day.”

Adults plan to mingle and lend a helping hand as students perform last minute touch-ups on their floats as the football team battles the Mendota Aztecs.

“Homecoming is the biggest event student leadership does all year long,” Josh Tosland, leadership adviser, said. “This creates many memories as high school graduates come back to their former campus and visit with friends.”

The tradition of homecoming allows alumni to gather and converse with their graduating class and any friends still in high school. Last year?s Homecoming king, Jason Harris, plans to revisit to catch up with friends and view the floats.

?I am very excited to see all my friends again,? Harris said. ?I want to see how different they are now that they are seniors.?

As a freshman princess candidate, Mary Reynolds embraces the chance to be in the spotlight through the princess pageant, held during the week of Homecoming.

“I was so surprised when I heard my name announced as a freshman princess candidate,” Reynolds said. “I am excited to do the many weird things in front of the student body prior to homecoming night.”

Although the majority of the student body plans to participate, Tyler Duerr, ’10, chooses to spend time with church friends.

“I spend five days a week with my friends at school, and I only have youth group at Northpark Church to spend time with my friends there,” Duerr said. “I want to try and balance my time between friends and school.?

Each class chose a current T.V. show for their float to display. The seniors plan to showcase Lost, the juniors chose That 70s Show, sophomores chose Survivor and freshmen plan to recreate Cops.

On the weekends preceding Homecoming, students meet at a classmate’s home to construct their float. Students dedicate time, energy, and resources in hopes of receiving first place in the float competition. The freshmen meet at Caroline Stevenson?s house, the sophomores at Kyle Maddox’s house, juniors at the home of Kevin Damm and the seniors at Kedric Anderson’s house.

“The floats provide each class with an activity outside of school to work as a team,” Tosland said. “It is a time to build relationships with their classmates, and talk to students with whom they usually don’t socialize.”

Clark Intermediate in Clovis will host the games; the JV football game will start at 5:30, and varsity at 7:30 P.M., on Oct 19. Ticket entry costs $6 for adults and $4 for children and senior citizens. Students with ID cards gain free admission.
