Student Council’s planning for the 2016 Rochester Adams Homecoming Dance is in full swing. The dance is scheduled for Saturday, October 15, and will go from 7-10 p.m. in the school’s main gym. Tickets to the dance will be sold the week before (the week of October 3) for 20 dollars in the cafeteria during all three lunches. Guest passes for those bringing dates who do not attend Adams High School are available on Student Council’s website.

“Our theme is ‘Around the World’. Decorations are going to be a bunch of different countries and stuff like that, animals for each country, and the tickets are going to be plane tickets, so that’s really cool,” said Student Council member, sophomore Michael Berry.

The Friday prior to the dance is packed with festivities for students. Friday is scheduled to have shortened class periods, allowing time for students to attend the homecoming pep assembly at the end of the day.

“The pep assembly is going to be scored this year.  There’s going to be a point system, based on the grades, so each grade that wins a game will get a point,” Berry said.

StuCo adviser, Mr. Bryan Lindstrom is always looking for ways to switch it up.

“Since the theme is ‘Around the World’, the pep assembly point system will be themed like the Olympics; the grade level with the most points wins the ‘Olympics’, boys dance competition included,” said Mr. Lindstrom.

After school that afternoon, Student Council will host the third annual Homecoming Parade before the football game. They are also introducing a new incentive to go with being on Homecoming court this year.

“Homecoming court will be riding in convertibles [for the parade], so that’ll be a big new thing,” said junior Erin Santella.

“For the parade, basically it’s just all the sports teams and some clubs, and we meet at Van Hoosen and then we’re going to be walking to Adams … It starts at 5 and then after it’s going to be a tailgate, and there will be free food,” said Santella.

Following the homecoming parade, the Adams Highlanders football team will take on the Stoney Creek Cougars. The game is at home on October 14 and kickoff is at 7 p.m..
