Alonso Student News

Homecoming took place on October 13th, 2018. For some students, it was their first time at homecoming, but for our seniors, it was their last homecoming. Students were dancing through the night; sometimes stopping for food and drinks; taking photos around the stadium; everyone having a good time.
Senior Trinity Nirenberg enjoyed her first and last Alonso homecoming. “Well, it was my first year at Alonso, and homecoming was a lot of fun at my old school. I love dances and all my friends told me that it’s a lot of fun. The music was great and the people I went with made the night amazing.” For a lot of students, homecoming was about having a good time with their friends and having fun dancing to the music.
Junior Destiny McDaniel had fun being a part of the 2018 homecoming court. “I wanted to go to homecoming this year because I haven’t gone before. Most of my friends were going, and I didn’t want to miss out on any high school memories. Homecoming this year was special because I had no clue what to expect. I haven’t gone before, and I don’t really go to parties. I chose to run this year because I thought that there’s no downside to running. I got to make all my posters and campaign with my friends. With it being my first year, I was thinking, ‘you only live once; I have to go big or go home’. I can’t even describe how winning princess felt. It was incredible and I was just full of pure joy. When I got off the field, all my friends just gave me a big group-hug and I just felt so loved. It was an emotional moment that I won’t ever forget.” Homecoming court was announced at the homecoming game this year and elections were a close call. Everyone who ran had fun, whether they won or not, and students were satisfied with the results of the election.
Senior Joshua Blasini had his first and last homecoming at Alonso. “I wanted to go because I never went. It's my senior year so I just felt like going. What made it special was that I went with my girlfriend and my friends. What I enjoyed the most was dancing and eating.” Some students at Alonso took a date with them. The DJ played a slow dance for everyone who brought someone or had a friend to dance with.
Homecoming is a great way to make memories in high school; being with friends, dancing, and taking pictures to remember your time in high school and who your friends were. Even though you might not still be friends with these people years from now, you can still look back and enjoy the memories
