East students have a good time at homecoming dance
November 26, 2019
Students showed up dressed to impress at the Homecoming dance, the only dance where all grade levels can come, and the students definitely took advantage of that, spending their Friday in Cafe 1 with their friends!
Teachers marked the tops of hands with purple, starting at 7:00 pm when the seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshmen in semi-formal dresses, suits, and shirts came into the building. The Cafe emptied out slowly around 10:00 pm. It was only until 15 minutes after that they turned back on the lights and politely encouraged for the rest of the students to get themselves home.
Sean Coen (‘20) and Nicole Benson (‘20) were voted Homecoming King and Queen! Students were given tickets to drop into each designated bag. Clearly, both Coen and Benson had the most tickets, and their pictures taken.
From all that exercise, refreshments were definitely needed. Three huge gallon containers labeled “Agua”, “H2O”, and “Water” were provided, along with a vast number of options to choose from in the food department. Two enormous trays of rolled tacos, little hot dogs and chicken tenders in another were served. There was even a controlled flame underneath all the food to keep it warm!
Snacks like tortilla chips with salsa and nacho cheese were laid out. Right beside were the sweets, including an enormous tray filled with oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip, and m&m’s embedded chocolate chip cookies and another loft size tray of brownies.
“I didn’t know Homecoming was going to be like this, not like in a bad way, but it was more fun than I thought it was going to be”, commented Diego Martinez (‘20).
East’s Homecoming dance was a complete success, and it seems like students will have a lot to remember about this dance
