September 19, 2019
As Homecoming week comes to an end, attend the Homecoming game tonight, then join the cheerleaders as they celebrate the homecoming dance tomorrow on Sept. 20th. Stand on the red carpet, dance with your classmates and friends, and make memories that will last a lifetime. Doors open at 8pm and close at 9pm. The dance lasts until 11pm. We hope to see you all there!
To encourage you to join, we’ve interviewed a few students and teachers to share their experiences at Homecoming.
“Even though it’s my first year of Homecoming, I’ve seen my sister get ready every year and it seems like a lot of fun,” shares Freshman Sheldon Wolff. He’s excited to be able to dress up and dance with friends. Homecoming is a Northeast tradition that has been going on for many years, it’s a great way to show school spirit.
One of the many events seniors look forward to is homecoming. Senior Sunni Balboa’s favorite part is going dress shopping and taking pictures with friends. When asking her what she expected from homecoming this year, she answered, “I hope the music is really good and I have a lot of fun considering it’s my last year.”
Although many people get excited for celebrations, there are others who don’t plan on going. Senior Mason Montgomery shares his thoughts on why he will not attend. “I have never been to homecoming because dances have never been my thing.” And honestly it doesn’t have to be your thing, and you don’t have to attend. This event is just a fun way to let loose and have fun with your classmates.
Planning big events can be hard. Coach Humphrey, the cheer coach and sponsor of homecoming says, “… I especially love to see how all our hard work has paid off to continue this school tradition.” Many cheerleaders can agree with this statement because they love seeing their classmates enjoying the dance and having fun.
And finally, many adults can fondly looks back at her homecoming memories. Ms. Griess, a teacher at Northeast, talks about how she participated in band and was actively involved in her school’s celebration for homecoming. “I think students should participate as much as they can… I think to me it’s what you put out for yourself. The more you embrace things, the more you try, and you make your own fun.”
