Even with yearly changes, the CB Homecoming tradition endures.

Homecoming is the one night of the year that most students look forward to. This dance is a gathering that includes all grade levels.

The Homecoming Dance gives all students the opportunity to mingle and interact with music, dancing, and friendly socializing. Some students choose to go with dates, others go “stag swag”, and some go with a group of friends.

CB Homecoming is set up, cleaned up, and organized by our very own student council.

“Student council chooses the theme for the dance and then plans it from there,” say student council member Jack Barnes (’15). “We decide on decorations, compromise with the administration on dress code, and count ballots as well as purchase sashes for the homecoming royalty.”

During Homecoming week, several activities and events take place. For example, women’s Powderpuff Football goes on all week, as well as different spirit days each day.

One rule that is different this year than in previous years is the dress code for girls.  Dean of Students Mrs. Cecilia Powers explains the change in dress code, and her opinion on it as well.

“The dress code rules are different because we are encouraging students to make appropriate choices with what they’re wearing.” Mrs. Powers explains. “We felt that some of the choices in the past were not appropriate for the CB setting, and we wanted to be clear that dresses are modest and appropriate for high school.”

The homecoming theme for 2013 is Grease and the administration is strongly encouraging students to bring out their poodle skirts and leather jackets to wear to the dance.

“We are encouraging students to dress to theme,” says student council member Victoria Linares (’15), “because the theme would be a way to give students more options with what they wear — it’s less expensive, less formal, and so much more fun.”

Lots of hard work is put in by student council to prepare for Homecoming, and they are hoping for everyone to have a grand time, dressed appropriately, at the dance this year.
