WEB EXCLUSIVE After the pep rally last Friday and a week of themed dress days, students prepare to celebrate homecoming festivities this weekend.
“I’m really excited for the dance and getting to see everyone together,” sophomore Jennifer Surjadi said. “I love music, getting to dress up and just feeling great.”
The themed dress days were Decades Monday, Twin Tuesday, Hawaiian Shirt Wednesday, and School Spirit Friday to raise spirit in anticipation for the Homecoming volleyball and football games.
“My favorite spirit day was probably Twin Day,” freshman Julia Kearney said. “It was a fun bonding experience for the Freshman Class.”
Each grade created class banners which will be displayed at the volleyball game and during half-time at the football game. The varsity football game is white-out themed and will be on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Kezar Stadium.
“I was just playing around with some designs and how we could arrange the letters,” sophomore Anneli Dolan, who is on the Art Council, said. “I thought it would be cool and personal to write everyone’s names, but I also wanted it to look simple and clean.”
The varsity volleyball game is tonight before the Homecoming Dance. The Cubs will play The Urban School in the Herbert Center Gym at 5:30 p.m. Students who attend the game will receive $5 off dance admission.
“I am kind of nervous and also kind of excited at the same time because it’s a big game,” varsity volleyball player Surjadi said. “Hopefully, there will be a big crowd tonight.”
