You heard correctly Somerset students .It is that time of the year again. The theme for the 2019 Spirit Week and Homecoming Dance is inspired by  the widely popular album created by Travis Scott, entitled “Astroworld”. From October 1 , 2019 to October 5,2019 , there will be a variety of activities for students to participate in to ring in the new school year. One comment people always make is that the activities are ‘not fun enough’. In actuality, the reason many people feel this way is because they do not attempt to participate and enjoy the event. There are a number of ways to make this week exciting for all students. Here are four ideas to make this season a blast! 

Create traditions with friends.  One of the most precious parts of High School is interacting with new people and creating memories to look back on as adulthood approaches. Spirit Week is one of the easiest ways to create these moments. It occurs every year during the High School era . One idea could be to twin with a friend or a group each year for one or more days. For instance, for Music day, you could find a popular duo and have one person dress up as one artist and the other dress up as the second artist. In addition, one tradition could be to go shopping with friends or arrive at the Homecoming Dance together through the years. Maybe  go to a different restaurant each year after the dance.

Look through your closet before you shop. Not everyone can afford the costs that come with the Homecoming season . Although desirable, the truth is that it does not have to be this way. Half of the time, people often buy articles that do not have to be purchased. Take a day to look through the closet and shocking items may appear. Wear a dress that was previously worn to another occasion . Wear a pair of heels that is already in your closet rather than buying new ones. 

 Attend or Participate in Spirit Week events. There are a few activities dedicated to Homecoming season besides the actual dance . The Homecoming Football game , which will take place on the field, is on Friday, October 4,2019. The Powderpuff Game, where girls play football and the boys are the Cheerleaders, is on Thursday, October 3,2019. Come support our Cougars and have a good time!

Attend the Homecoming Dance. After all of this, it would only make sense to attend the actual Homecoming Dance. You never know how something is until you give it a try. Rather than sitting at home and saying “It’s lame,” or “ I don’t dance”,  come out and put your words to the test. The Homecoming dance is on October 5, 2019 and will be held in the Somerset Gym from 7:00 p.m to 10:00 p.m. We hope to see you there !
