Arrowhead’s annual homecoming dance is on Saturday, September 29th.  The dance, run by Arrowhead’s student senate, is the Saturday after the homecoming football game in the west gym at Arrowhead’s north campus.  Students can buy tickets at lunch for 15 dollars.

This year’s theme is “Dancing Through the Decades” according to Tamara Varsos, Arrowhead teacher and head of student senate.

The dance is planed and put on by Arrowhead student senate, whose members take part in selling tickets at lunch.

Varsos says, “Money from the ticket sales goes to cover the cost of the dance (DJ, decorations) and other Homecoming week activities.  It also helps provide funds other Senate and school projects throughout the year.”

According to Varsos, “around 800-900” students on average attend the dance each year.  The dance open to all students at Arrowhead.

As for the theme, it is “voted on by students at the end of May along with the Executive Board elections,” says Varsos.

Once the theme is decided, members of students senate work to find and make themed decorations.  The gym will be decorated with “decorations from different decades – 1950s-1990s,” according to Varsos.

Each year, students attending the dance take part in the tradition of asking each other with signs and clever sayings.

Jack Hazod, an Arrowhead senior, took part in this tradition, asking Natalie Purko with a poster board and flowers.  He said, “I am excited for homecoming this year because it is senior year, and I’m going with a bunch of really good friends.”

Homecoming follows a week of festivities such as the Homecoming Parade,  spirit dress-up days, movie night, the pep rally, Hawkfest, and the homecoming football game.

“Homecoming week is one of the best weeks of the year, there so much going on” says Meleana Stretcher, an Arrowhead senior.
