On Saturday, October 18th, New Hope-Solebury High School students dressed up for a masquerade themed night to remember. Homecoming 2014 was a great success and the perfect way to kick off a great school year! Student DJs got the crowd dancing and singing. The loud music and energy in the air was enough to get students excited. For ten dollars, students could go to this three hour dance, have access to free food, and could walk out to the beautifully decorated courtyard at anytime.
This year’s homecoming court nominees were announced at the friday night homecoming football game, and the winners were announced Saturday night at the dance, located in the middle school gym. These winners were widely congratulated by their peers, who voted them into the court. Emily Madara and Dylan Smith won freshman Lord and Lady. The sophomore winners for Duke and Duchess were Katie Steele and Andrew Wheelan. For Junior Prince and Princess, Maddie Pitel and Abbiel Zuniga won. Olivia Knable and Avery Jones were crowned Queen and King. After the winners were announced, the nominees danced to a slow song in the middle of the gym.
The students came dressed in formal attire. Girls wore dresses and high heels or flats, though most took their shoes off. The guys showed up in collared shirts and dress pants. Everyone spent time to look their best for that night, and it definitely payed off.
Homecoming, and the week leading up to it, were a fun, spirited way to start off the year. The credit for a great night goes to the DJs, chaperones, and everyone who attended the dance with a positive attitude.
