Long time coming but successful homecoming dance was worth the wait

The wait for students is over.

Bridgewater-Raritan High School finally held a homecoming dance, and it was a success.

The dance took place Saturday, October 14, from 6-9 p.m. in the large gym of the high school.

Students had been waiting for a long time for BRHS school to have a dance, so the student council finally proposed the idea of a dance for homecoming. 

Every year there is a homecoming football game along with a couple that wins homecoming court, but there is never a dance. The idea was thrown out there for the school to finally have one. 

Students looked forward to attending the dance this year.

“I was so excited to hear about HOCO  (homecoming) because our school doesn’t do many events,” junior Cosette Cornfield said.

Cornfield says her favorite part was the dancing, and is hopeful BRHS will have more dances like this in the future.

Other students shared their favorite part of homecoming.

“My favorite part about this dance is the dresses,” junior Kylie Rodriguez said. 

 Freshman Maria Bernandez shared her opinion, too.

“I think the idea of homecoming is great considering this is my first homecoming ever, and I do think this type of dance will happen again. My favorite part would be when everyone is on the dance floor and being happy,” Bernandez said.

Physical education and cross-country coach, Adam Pyle, also shared his thoughts. Coach Pyle said he is very excited to see BRHS come through with a homecoming dance.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for our students and our community as a whole to be able to show school spirit and ultimately create potential lifetime memories,” Mr. Pyle said.

Principal Hemberger said he was really excited to be hosting this dance, especially since there has not been one in over eight years. 

When asked if there would be any future dances like this, he said, “Most likely yes. The organization for the dances is coordinated by the student council. However, there is nothing planned as of right now, but there is talk for a spring dance.”

The homecoming dance was a success and has brought hope for future dances at the high school.
