Amira Khayyat (12) and Patrick O’Day (12) are awarded crowns during the homecoming football game for winning homecoming queen and king.

Students have been voted and chosen to represent the student body for Homecoming court. This year’s nominees include: 

Freshman Court: Kylee Bobbitt and Cody McMullen

Sophomore Court: Grace Edney and CJ Jefferson

Junior Court: Alexis Shuster and Ethan Weiler 

Senior Court: Bella Bahr and Carson Clay, Abby Lovell and KJ Lyles, Amira Khayyat, and Patrick O’Day; were all nominated to be king and queen this year. This year’s Homecoming queen and king are Amira Khayyat and Patrick O’Day. 

How did you feel about winning homecoming king?

“I was very happy and surprised to win king. I was surprised to be nominated because I didn’t even nominate myself. It is important because it shows off who the people want,” O’Day said.

How did you feel about winning homecoming queen?

“I think being homecoming queen is fun and just something to remember. I was surprised to be nominated because lots of people were trying to get nominated and I did not try at all so it was shocking. I think it’s important to be involved in high school and this was a good way,” Khayyat said.

Spirit king and queens were also determined. Our staff winner was Mr. McFadden. The students who won and proved they were the most decked out in their spirit ware were Serena Bartels and Colin Doniff.

How do you feel about spirit week at school? 

“I love spirit week, I think it’s super fun to get involved and dress up and be a part of homecoming week,” Bartels said. 

What was your favorite spirit day this week?

“My favorite spirit day was probably pajama day because it was super comfy, I wore like this huge blanket on me,” Bartels said. 

What was your favorite outfit that you noticed on a student or teacher this week? 

“There were two people, Jayden Smith and Hayden Duenwald on twin day, I thought their outfit was super cool. It was basically a perfect match, it was awesome,” Bartels said.

How do you feel about spirit week?

“I think it is really fun, it lets students be themselves more because we aren’t able to do stuff like this all the time,” Doniff said. 

Why did you choose to participate in spirit week? 

“Well, my sister went here and graduated in 2019. She won from freshman to senior year. She won every year. I didn’t want to be in her shadow, I just wanted to be myself so I decided to do it,” Doniff said. 

What was your favorite outfit that you noticed on a student or teacher this week? 

“On twin day, Aiden Barry and Molly Marino had shirts. One said if I´m lost return me to babe, then her shirt said I am babe. I thought that was really cool,” Doniff said. 

How do you feel about spirit week? 

“I feel good about spirit week. I think they chose the right winners for this year. I also would like to shout out to the juniors for the junior hallway. I thought the hallway looked really good,” McFadden said.

What was your favorite spirit day? 

“Definitely jeans day, I got to wear Ms. Pizzo’s jean jacket,” McFadden said.
