Juniors seek redemption from past years

As homecoming approaches, each class will compete in the float competition during half time, Oct. 25. Until then, students meet and collaborate to construct their chosen theme.

To go along with the theme, “It’s a bird, it’s a plane. No, it’s Homecoming!” the junior class has chosen to portray The Avengers. Check back each week to see updates on their progress as the deadline approaches.

Oct. 18

The junior class has yet to recieve first place in the homecoming float competition. In 2011 they came in a close second with The Game of Life theme. In 2012, they came in last place with ‘Wizard of Oz’ float theme. This year they plan on wowing the crowd with a wide variety of Marvel superheroes.

Creating a float for homecoming is not always an easy task. Student leadership representative, Gabriela Siqueiros, ’15, talks about what is required to pull this float together.

“There is so much to do to create the float,” Siqueiros said. “So far we have built the background and a few of the props, but there is still a lot to do. We are borrowing a trailer from Mr. Hurley [FC woodshop teacher] and we are really stressing because we do not get the trailer until the day of homecoming. We are going to have to put it all together in one day.”

It will take a lot of participation from all the juniors to pull their float together. Breanna Jennings, ’15, is keeping the float at her house while it is being assembled. Although Jennings enjoys the building at her house there are some repercussions that come along with that.

“The float building is taking place at my house,” Jennings said. “I like having the float at my house because I get to stay later after the float meetings and work on it. The downside to having it at my house is that stuff gets broken and tools go missing which gets pretty frustrating. All-in-all, though, I enjoy having the float building at my house.”

Many students have come together to help with the float. Jason Swain, has been attending the float meetings for the past year, and plans to help as much as possible this year.

“I’m planning at being at all the rest of the float meetings,” Swain said. “I’m not sure I am going to buy a whole lot of supplies for the float this year, because I paid for a lot of them in the past, but I will definetely help build with whatever supplies are there. I think we will be able to pull off first place this year as long as everyone comes to the meetings and works together.”

    That is a great idea to bond the school together! We as Christians should always be praying!

    I liked this idea for the prayer cards. I also really liked the theme for this chapel. I enjoy chapels because it’s a time dedicated to God, and that’s really important.
