On February 3, New Haven High School had its annual Homecoming dance after the boys’ basketball games. The dance ended at 11:30 P.M. The Homecoming dance played many styles of music from country love songs to rap and R&B.
74% of the freshmen, 78% of the sophomores, 62% of the juniors, and 79% of the seniors came to Homecoming. In total, 123 students showed up to the dance.
The theme for Homecoming this year was the classic 1990’s TV show Friends.
When asked for a comment about the Homecoming theme, LeeAnna Linton responded with, “I loved the theme because I am in love with the show Friends. I also loved the ‘90s theme, because my senior class is the last of the ‘90s babies!”
Nicki Zeitzmann said, “I'm not a big fan of the show Friends, but since the theme was to honor us seniors as the last ‘90s class, I thought that was nice.” She was also asked what her favorite moment was and her response was that she enjoyed when Dominick Pataky (her boyfriend) started to break dance, since that was the first time she ever saw him do that.
McKenzie Overschmidt commented that her favorite part of the dance was “when we were all in the circle of the dance floor, and everyone started to dance in the middle.”
Jacob Wilson said that his favorite part was hanging out with his friends.
Miranda Durbin, Nicki Zeitzmann, Makayla Jackson, and Audrey Ford said that they all enjoyed the addition of the photo booth this year.
Alexander Trentmann commented “I loved the photo booth because I got to take pictures with friends, and was able to keep them to remember the great time I had.”
