On October 7th, 2017, our homecoming dance was held in the middle school gym. Once you walked into the gym, you got to see the decorations students made for the dance. This year’s theme was Empire State of Mind. We had a couple of DJ’s that were cranking up the music to jam to and got into the music too. As hours passed, we had songs that everyone would get into, like “Cotton Eye Joe” and “Cha Cha Slide”. As the night was coming to an end, eventually they did the grand entry of the homecoming court. First came the junior marshals, Hannah Roth and Logan Plate. Then our Homecoming court girls and boys walked down the aisle and did a pose. First came Cassie Bevers and Jacob VanderWyst, then came Olivia Gloudemans and Matt Reynebeau, Megan Lonigro and Charlie Hietpas, Olivia Scheeler and Max Schommer, Gracie Woelfel and Ethan Vander Zanden. Then finally our King Connor Weigman and Queen Jana VanVooren walked down the aisle doing an epic pose. As the night came to an end,the students enjoyed their last song of the night: “Jump Around”.
