Mount Vernon’s yearly homecoming week made students excited and optimistic, yet again; not only for the formal dance that offers a time for students to have fun and relax for a night as a student body, but also for what the rest of the school year will hold.

Homecoming week allows students to come to school and participate in a theme set for each day that week. For example, some themes this year were twin day, mix-matched tacky day, and wear all black day. This went along with the overall theme of the formal dance which was “Fright Night.”

Not only did all of these fun activities make Mount Vernon as a whole excited, the ultimate hype was the pep rally, which was on Friday, prior to the football game, and followed by the dance. Mount Vernon is known for having involved and energetic crowds, and the students definitely lived up to that reputation as they played in games that strengthened teamwork and communication, while screaming at the top of their lungs as they were asked to chant their graduating year as loud as possible.

Every fall sports team was recognized, as was the SGA and class officers. The best surprise was the teacher flash mob, which was set to “Thriller,” by Michael Jackson. Excitement from the energy of these teachers dancing was intense to say the least. This flash mob ended the pep rally on the best note and allowed students to go forward excited for the dance and the rest of the year.
