Homecoming: Return of the Rams


By Drew Hannon and Charlie Hex

Homecoming is arriving soon with a week of fun activities beginning Oct 18. The theme this year is Return of the Rams to reflect coming back to school from a virtual world. 

The theme involves components from the popular franchise Star Wars, with five corresponding dress-up days. Most importantly though is the theme for the homecoming game which is “dark side day”. It is essentially a blackout theme where the goal is to wear as much black clothing and accessories as possible. 

On Friday, Oct. 22, there will be a homecoming carnival complete with an alternate schedule. Tickets can be purchased the week of Oct 18 at the banker’s office, ASB, or select teachers. 

Seniors had the opportunity to run for homecoming court, but the deadline to submit your application has unfortunately passed. Sometime soon however you can look forward to voting for who you think should be homecoming royalty.  

The homecoming dance will take place directly after the game outside the gym. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased from the banker or online three days after the homecoming contract has been signed by both the attending student and their guardian. 

Students are allowed to bring up to one off campus guest who is 19 years or younger. In order to do this, the guest must fill out and sign their own homecoming guest contract, and get their Millikan student to purchase their ticket. 

Homecoming is a great way to connect with your school and have fun at the same time, so be sure to get that contract signed and pick up your tickets soon!

    In Issue 1/2021 (published October 20, 2021), Charlie Hex and Drew Hannon wrote an article titled “Homecoming: Return of the Rams”. The article talks about what Homecoming is and the theme for this year’s Homecoming. It also mentions how to buy tickets and what students have to do in order to purchase them. The article is very well written, however, I did notice that only one of the dates has a period after abbreviating October. Shouldn’t all of the dates have a period after the abbreviation of October? Other than that minor detail the article is great. I love how it not only gives information about buying Homecoming dance tickets, but it also talks about how to purchase the carnival tickets as well. I like that it talks about the carnival that takes place on Friday and that it mentions the theme of Homecoming. A suggestion I have is that instead of just stating the theme of Homecoming and the dress up day for Friday, the article could have also talked about what the other dress up days that week were. I like how a student could just read the article to learn more about Homecoming, but they could also read it to get an idea of what Homecoming is like. This was a great article and I enjoyed reading it.

    In Issue 1/2021 (published October 20, 2020), Drew Hannon and Charlie Hex wrote an article titled “Homecoming: Return of the Rams” The article goes into depth about the different fun activities taking place the week of October 18th. Prior to this article, I didn’t know that only seniors could run for homecoming court. I know that other schools allow different grades to run besides seniors. I wonder why we only allow one singular grade to run? I think it would be fun if we include some of the other grades. It would give students the opportunity to know more than just their grade on campus. I know that I would have definitely run if given the opinion as a junior. Another thing that this article informed me about is the homecoming carnival. I thought that with this year being a COVID year we wouldn’t have one. There are so many great things in this article to help kids navigate there way through homecoming. Most of them being freshmen and sophomores who have never had somewhat traditional high school experience. I can’t wait to see the campus filled with school spirit.Thank you for informing me all about how Millikan’s homecoming works!
