Lightly tucking her hair behind her ear, Indianette senior Heylee Warren sits in her Chemistry class, concentrating on the paperwork in front of her. Every so often, she slightly taps a beat on the desk with the bottom of her pencil.

Warren is in the spirit for Homecoming week. She is excited to attend the dance, which is the last for the class of 2019.

“I try my best to always do spirit week,” Warren said. “It’s the last Homecoming we have.”

Spirit week took place Sept. 10-14, ending the week with homecoming on Sept. 15.

Warren’s plans for the day of the Homecoming dance include getting dressed up, taking pictures, and going out to eat with senior Hayden Astry.

“I’m getting my hair done, I’ll do my own makeup,” Warren said. “Me and Hayden [Astry] are gonna go take pictures on the square and we’re going out to eat at the restaurant Jazz.”

Student council member freshman Brianna Petterson is prepared to help decorate the gym with paper-made guitars, cd’s, and posters to match the dance theme which is ‘Rock of the Ages’.

“Since our theme is ‘rock of the ages’ we’re gonna do guitars hanging from ceilings,” Petterson said. “We are putting rock posters all over the walls and centerpieces with cd’s and guitars.”

Warren hopes there will be a variety of music genres playing at the dance like past Homecoming and Courtwarming dances have done with their music.

“I’ve gone to all of the dances,” Warren said. “I really liked the music in the past when it was a really big mixture of things.”

Likewise, Senior Kylee Allen is hoping the music for Homecoming won’t be focused on only one genre.

“I hope that they don’t play a lot of rap,” Allen said. “Rap is really hard to dance to and they usually play rap.”

Finishing up her paperwork, Warren places it in her folder and tucks it away in her dark red and white backpack. She then plays sweet melodies through her earbuds, waiting for the class to be dismissed.
