PIQUA — Piqua High School’s Homecoming Dance is Oct. 6, and the theme this year is Saturday Night Fever.
The Saturday Night Fever theme was chosen because Superintendent Dwayne Thompson recommended that Student Council pick a theme from 1978. Forty years ago, in 1978, a levy was passed to pay for PHS, so the theme was picked in honor of the building of the high school.
Tickets are $8 a person and went on sale last Thursday. Tickets will not be sold at the door. Money raised will go to the Student Council fund to be used for next year’s homecoming decorations and DJ. Some of the money also goes towards the family that Student Council adopts at Christmas.
The dance will be held from 8-11 p.m. in the commons. Homecoming queen will be crowned at the football game on Oct. 5. Homecoming king will be crowned during the dance around 9:30 p.m.
Homecoming Court this year includes: Kelsey Bachman, Elizabeth Cox, Morgan Hammiel, Kaylee Lacy, Kitte Lampe, Grace McGonagle, Hailey McPherson, Skylar Sloan, Mason Darner, Kraig Hemmert, Micah Karn, Cade Lyman, Christian Starrett, Brennan Toopes, Grant Toopes, and Owen Toopes.
The week of Oct. 1-5 PHS does a Homecoming Spirit Contest. Students are encouraged to dress up each day of the week leading to homecoming. Monday was Color Wars; each class wore a certain color. Seniors wore pink, juniors wore yellow, sophomores wore purple, and freshmen wore black. Tuesday was dress like a teacher, Wednesday was Fraternity and Sorority day, Thursday is theme day where students should dress in 1970s theme, and Friday is school colors. The student wearing the best costume each day will receive a free ticket to Homecoming.
