The students at Samueli Academy are unfortunately not going to have homecoming this year. Although when hearing there would be a homecoming other grades were surprised because they didn't have one during their years.
Many students were wondering why we weren’t going to have one and many didn’t even know. “ My first thought was that we definitely needed a homecoming because almost every highschool has one”. This response was very different to next person’s answer, “I honestly didn’t know there wasn’t going to be a homecoming anymore”.
The reason being for the homecoming cancellation was because we already had the big halloween dance and then also because of the money. When hearing the news this was unexpected because many students wanted the “high school experience”. A few weeks later homecoming was uncanceled and we were going to have one, which would be our very first homecoming of the years since the school has been there. We found out it wasn’t going to be a homecoming dance, but a game and students were still excited that they would have one.
I asked what many people would prefer whether they wanted a homecoming game or dance. “I rather have a homecoming dance because I mean that’s basically what homecoming is, also you get the high school experience, and you get to enjoy it with your friends”. This was also different than what others wanted, “Homecoming game because it seems better to me and more exciting”. Not all students got what they wanted, but they were still happy that our school is having its first homecoming game. This is exciting to everyone because this a new thing we added to do in our school for everyone to enjoy.
