From the venue to the theme, get the inside scoop on ASB’s plans for Homecoming 2014. 

Just weeks after hosting an incredible Prom in April 2014, CHS’s ASB class began to plan for another major event: Homecoming. “We had our first Homecoming meeting with the event planner in June,” said CHS senior and ASB Vice President Hannah Downey. Downey has been working closely with a committee of students to plan this year’s Homecoming weekend, which will include a pep rally, parade, football game and formal dance. 

Senior Class Vice President Caroline Carlson has been working alongside Downey in the parade planning process. “Right now, we’re gathering the necessary materials to build the floats,” said Carlson, who is currently searching for a golf cart for each class to decorate. According to ASB member Siobhan Homan, several students have been assigned to coordinate with local businesses and schedule class meetings. “We’re also working on getting students excited to take part in float building,” said Carlson.  

Downey said that the theme of the parade will be agreed upon by a council of clubs on September 17 and will correspond to the theme of the pep rally on October 24. As in past years, voting for the King and Queen will take place in the Spirit Week leading up to the game. The King will be announced at the pep rally during the school day and the Queen will be crowned during the football game’s halftime ceremony. 

The theme for this year’s dance will be “Sea of Lights” and it will be held on Saturday, October 25 at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. “The venue is spectacular,” said Carlson. Homan said that the dance floor will be as dark as possible, lit only be colorful lights and screens. “We added a lighting package with our DJ,” she said. “It came with a boatload of cool features.” 

Several interactive science exhibits will be open to students and the dance will feature a henna tattoo artist and green screen photo booth. Downey hopes to see 800 Islanders at this year’s Homecoming dance.
