During this time of year, excited North Atlanta students gear up for chilly fall weather and fill their heads with hope for the football season.  But with all the season brings comes another tradition that high schoolers know all too well: Homecoming. 

Homecoming is an event that revolves around the start of football at school, kicking off the season with a dance. In addition, the week before homecoming can be categorized by specially themed dress-up days and various activities to boost school spirit. “I can’t wait to see everyone’s pajamas for the spirit day on Monday,” said junior Zoe Glickman.

Besides the big game on Friday, Oct. 4, for North Atlanta against Northview High School, girls across every grade are gearing up for Powder Puff. In this classic high school event, the girls become the players and the boys are the cheerleaders. On Oct. 2, crowds will gather to watch the girls of each grade compete in a flag-football game. 

Two days later, on Oct. 4, the NAHS student body plans on dancing the night away in the gym, glitzed up with either their significant others or a group of friends. Those new to the school are looking forward to  their first high school dance. “I can’t wait for homecoming: it’s a classic high school experience,” said freshman Jocie Woodard.

Some juniors and seniors, however, don’t seem to share the same enthusiasm. Many see it as a “been there done that” type of event and plan to do other things with their night. “I still haven’t been to Netherworld,” said senior Ava Behan-Sahib, “but I’ve been to homecoming three years in a row. Time to move on.” 

But even if students do not have a desire to attend the dance, there is still a week full of activities and dressing prompts to give the students a slight break from daily school stress. What the dance will bring is not entirely known, but this much is for certain: The “Bright Lights” of Homecoming Week 2019 are making us all look good.
