During the week leading up to Homecoming, ASB hosted spirit week with games and music in Palm Court. ASB adviser Ms. Carmona said, “I was extremely pleased. ASB students put in a lot of planning and organization into this year’s event. I thought it was extremely smooth. there were no last minute planning.”
“The theme is related to a song in Hairspray, which is the drama production. For the last 3 years we’ve tried to align our Homecoming dance theme with our drama production to promote the story and kind of collaborate with drama. They help us by allowing us to borrow some of their costumes for half time show,” continued Carmona.
The annual Homecoming Pep Rally was held at the field before lunch, featuring class games, the announcement of this year’s Homecoming King Bryant Chow, and performances from Band, Colorguard, Dance, All Male, Drill, and Cheer Teams.
