Leadership is trying to shuffle the deck with with a brand new theme this year for the Homecoming week.

The week of January 22, Leadership is running the Homecoming week that will be drawing to an end on Saturday, January 27, with the House of Cards Homecoming dance. The spirit days of this week include Old Maid Day, Crazy Eights Day, Kings and Queens Day, Four of a Kind day, and Black and Red Day.

Many students were skeptical about this week’s spirit days. While most are big fans of the Four of a Kind theme, which is essentially Squad Day, they question some of the other themes.

Corrin Blancarte, a junior, is one of the many who doesn’t understand the themes.

“The grandparents one is weird,” said Blancarte. “And the soccer mom and stay at home dad one is weird, because, how do you dress up for that? But, I think they’re good, considering the card games, I don’t really know.”

Aidan Sullivan, a Freshman, agreed with Blancarte’s statement.

“I don’t really know much about the spirit days,” Sullivan had admitted.

While some students aren’t sure about the spirit days this week, Leadership is excited to see the ending result of all of their hard work.

Matt MacDonald, the Leadership teacher, gave kudos to his Leadership students for how well they handled the responsibility of each aspect that comes along with preparing school dances and spirit days.

“Pretty much every single aspect of Homecoming week comes down to the Leadership students,” said Mr. MacDonald. “From calling people, to ordering flowers, to ordering medals for the court, to controlling the elections, and even to booking the DJ. You know, they do all of that.”

Junior Shelbi Beghetti gave further details as to what goes on inside the Leadership committee.

“We work pretty well together,” said Beghetti. “Sometimes we get a little bit distracted because it’s hard because a lot of people are directors of different things. Some people are focused on planning the rally, some people are focused on planning the dance, and some on advertising. So we’re not necessarily all working together but it’s still the end goal of Homecoming.”

Karinne McDonald, a senior, gave some insight on where all of the funding goes.

“Other than like getting the money back from what we spent on, it goes straight to ASB,” said McDonald. “And then it goes to everything else that we do during the school year. The more money that we make, the more that we can do throughout the year. We’re trying to get more money for breaking down the walls in March.”

McDonald also gave the details of Homecoming.

“So Homecoming is on January 27 at 7:30 till 10, and it’s in the MPR,” said McDonald. “Tickets will be 10 dollars without all access and free with all access. You can get them at Adina’s office (The Student Store) and at ticket booths that we will have set around the school.”
