Cy Creek will hold its Homecoming dance in the Commons Oct. 15 from 7-10 p.m. The theme for this year’s dance is “A Night in the Clouds” according to a post on the Student Council’s Instagram page.

Tickets can be purchased online via SchoolCash. However, there are two Homecoming ticket packages this year. The regular package costs $26 for an entrance ticket. The premium package costs $36 and includes admission to the dance, unlimited access to the 360 and Mirror cameras, and five tickets for drinks and snacks. The last day to buy tickets is Oct. 13.

Students who would like to bring a guest to the dance may pick up a guest form from room 2201. Guests cannot be older than 18, and only one guest is allowed per student. The last day to turn in guest forms is Oct. 7, according to a post on the Student Council’s Instagram page.

Students may notice the addition of ticket packages this year is different from years past.

“What inspired us to make changes for Homecoming this year was last year’s Homecoming [dance],” Student Council President and senior Dayna Cortez said. “It was a great Homecoming, but [Student Council] wants to improve and get better each year [at] planning. We’re taking our mistakes from last year and applying new tactics on what to do and what not to do when planning the event. We are inspired and motivated to put pride, dedication and diligence in our work because we want the best for our classmates. We want to include everyone here at Cypress Creek High School.”

Student Council members are working to make this year’s Homecoming special.

“What’s going to set this year’s dance apart from the previous year is the effort and time management we have put into this year’s Homecoming,” Cortez said. “Last year as Junior Executive, I created a Homecoming planner that has tasks for each month to plan for Homecoming, which is really helpful for this year. We have a great officer line, and we’re taking on more responsibility to make this dance a good one. We also managed to acquire a 360 camera, Mirror Photo Booth and some fun glow in the dark games for students to play.”

Cortez hopes this year’s Homecoming changes students’ perspective on the event.

“We want students to think of Homecoming as a fun social event,” Cortez said. “Usually, students tend to bash on the Homecoming dance, and we want to change that. We want to have a positive impact on kids, and we want them to participate in our events and think of Creek as a safe and positive place. Everyone should enjoy Homecoming because it’s fortunate that we have these types of events to have fun and come together as a community.”

Student Council released an official statement over the announcements on Friday, Sept. 23 sharing the nominees for this year’s Homecoming court as well as voting information.

The nominees for Homecoming King are seniors Chandler Collins, Corey Hadnot, Noah Martin, Kirby Sims, and Johnathan Vining.

The nominees for Homecoming Queen are seniors Amani Ansari, Sofia Grimm, Season Finley, Kirsten Schumann, and Sophia Villalon.

Voting for Homecoming court will be done through all English classes Oct. 3-7, and the King and Queen will be announced at the Homecoming game Oct. 14. at Pridgeon Stadium against Jersey Village High School.
