Wearing dresses at Town and Country Square, sophomores Sami Eveland and Sammi Duncan dress up for their self-created homecoming. Despite COVID-19 cancelling school-sponsored homecoming , Duncan and her friend group decided to plan their own event and make the most out of the situation. “We were all super bummed about homecoming being cancelled,” Duncan said. “We just wanted to have a fun time with our friends whether it was for real or [fake], but we all knew that it was for our safety and getting to plan our own made us feel a lot better.”

Parting the curtain separating the senior lounge from the senior hallway, senior Nolan Barbre walks the red carpet the morning of Thursday, Sept.12. In honor of the senior class theme for Homecoming week, West Coast Glam, Barbre dressed up as singer/songwriter Elton John. “This has been the best spirit week I’ve seen in all four years, just because of the participation. I see a lot more people participating, everyone’s doing it rather than just the upperclassmen. Glam Day has been my favorite day so far because I got to dress up as Elton John.”
