Student Council is hosting their annual Welcome Back Assembly after school on Friday, Aug. 23. The assembly will feature performances from theater, Polynesian Club, and the women’s acapella group. In addition, the assembly will include a variety of games for the student body to participate in.      

“StuCo’s goal is to unite the students on campus,” senior Student Body President Emma Aguero said. “We want assemblies to be a place where all students can come together and be proud of our school. We accomplish this by showing off what Coronado has to offer.” 

At the assembly, students are encouraged to sit with their class section. On Friday, each period will be shortened by approximately ten minutes to create time for the assembly. Students who take the school bus after school should note that the buses will run at their usual time. 

“I love watching the games and talking with my friends at the assembly,” junior Ian Hawkes said. “I also enjoy cheering for my class and yelling ‘sit down freshman.’”

The varsity football team will play their first home game of the season against the Foothill Knights at 7:00 p.m. on Friday. The varsity Cougarettes and cheerleaders will perform at halftime as well as cheering on the sidelines during the game. Tickets are $3 at the gate, and students must have a school ID to enter. Students are also urged to wear red and to sit in the student cheering section.

“I’m looking forward to the football game on Friday night,” freshman Kaden Ryan said. “Since it’s my first high school football game, I don’t know what to expect. I’m just excited to hang out and cheer on my school with my friends.”

For seniors only, the yearly Senior Sunrise is at 6:45 a.m. on Friday. There will be free breakfast, and a group photo of all the seniors will be taken at 7:30 a.m. Attendees should meet on the visitor side of the football field, wearing their red senior shirts and senior crowns. Seniors can pick up their crowns in room 503 before school or at the beginning of both lunches. Students should design and decorate their crowns prior to the event. 

“I’m very excited to decorate my crown and hang out with my friends at the Senior Sunrise,” senior Ava Coulter said. “I want to show as much school spirit as possible since it’s my senior year.”
