Student body historian Samantha Sims, senior, checks the polls for the student body votes on the homecoming dance vs. bash on Friday, Sept. 11.

This year, Student Council opened voting online via tallyspace to the student body to determine whether they would like to continue with a formal dance or forego the dance in place of a bash. Voting began Aug. 31 and ended Sept. 10. After Student Council tallied the votes, the conclusion was there will be a homecoming bash.

“I think the bash is a terrific idea. I really liked that we got to choose whether we wanted a dance or a bash. I liked that students got a say and vote on what they wanted,” Lexie Engdahl, sophomore, said.

The homecoming bash will be held after the football game on Thursday, Oct. 29. The bash will be held on the soccer field, and students who plan on attending are encouraged to come to the game to support the Cougar football team before the bash begins. This year’s homecoming theme has not yet been decided.

“I’m really excited about the bash, I think it will be a lot of fun, and I’m eager to see how it turns out,” Veda Atty, junior, said.

Voting for this year’s homecoming court nominees will begin on Oct. 12 and end Oct. 16. The votes for the winners will begin Oct. 19 and end Oct. 23. Each student can only vote for his or her class and the seniors. The senior king and queen will be announced at the bash, but the rest of the class royalty will be announced at the assembly.

“Student Council decided to have the vote because we came up with two ideas that we thought our student body might enjoy. We wanted all of the student body to be included in the decision, and hope they will enjoy the planned event,” Hannah Grossman, sophomore, historian, said.
