The lake-surrounded student body does not see the ocean beach very often; yet, last year, the Student Activities Committee planned a beach-themed homecoming dance where the seniors dressed up in their best beachwear.

This year, select SAC members suggested a different theme that is just as unique: junior Sydney Therien and sophomore Gavin Kimmel, both members of SAC, proposed a space-themed homecoming, full of glittering stars and dark colors to represent the atmosphere this planet is a part of.

“During our first meeting we had some discussion about a spaced themed homecoming; I think it would really be a cool idea,” Therien said.

SAC is an elected group, which means that every year, each grade votes for four students in their grade they believe will bring the best ideas and stand for what the school as a whole wants for social activities.

About her out-of-this world homecoming idea, Therien said, “I thought it would be fun to have some say in all of the social events going on. Personally, I really enjoy planning things out for my friends that are fun and different from going to someone’s house and watching a movie.”

During the first meeting this year, SAC talked about the theme of the event along with the location of the dance itself, which has been up in the air. In the past few years, homecoming has stayed grounded on the Randolph campus; that tradition will not change. Instead, SAC is considering changing locations inside the building. SAC students suggested moving the event from inside the cafeteria, like years before, to the Gym or the Huss downstairs lobby. Both of these new locations could bring new space for students to dance, and bring a fresh start to the new theme.

It’s important for the students to have fun, especially because school can be a pain.”

“We hope to organize fun activities for the school and get everyone engaged by having school spirit,” Kimmel said. “It’s important for the students to have fun, especially because school can be a pain. Sometimes just organizing fun dances can be really helpful.”

Homecoming week will take place Sept. 24-29, with the dance on Friday.
