Homecoming in October? Never too early to plan

Megan Spranger – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- LRHS 2016 Homecoming is about one month away but that’s not stopping Mustangs from getting hyped up for the annual Spirit Week that includes the Homecoming game and dance along with a week of silly, spirit fun during Spirit Week.

Spirit Week consists of Mustangs showing their school spirit by dressing in the theme of the day. Every day has a new theme which allows students to be creative and showcase their best interpretation of what that theme represents to them.

“Homecoming is the last week of October and we are in the process of planning the spirit days and after school events,” said Student Government Association (SGA) president Tori Boudreau, senior, “we hope that kids come out and participate in the events after school because they’re a lot of fun and a great way to meet people.”

Freshman Bailey Wegenast said, “I’m looking forward to going to the homecoming dance with my friends and having a fun time dancing with them.”

Homecoming events are often special occasions students look forward to at the beginning of the school year.

“Ever since last year I’ve been looking forward to homecoming,” said sophomore Jordan Brown, “homecoming is my favorite time of the year.”

The homecoming dance is a time for dressing up and making lasting memories with fellow students.

“I can’t wait to see all the dresses the girls are going to wear,” said junior Jenna  diDomenico.

Dress code will still be enforced through out spirit week as well as at the homecoming dance.

“Homecoming is a good way for students to make friends with other students who enjoy being involved with school spirit,” said LRHS discipline dean Jessica Kane, “students need to be reminded however to still keep within the code of conduct during this time.”

“I love watching my friends walk across the field during the football game,” said senior Evan Schuneman, “I also love to see the fun outfits that students choose to wear, too.”
