Homecoming week theme days introduced by committee

Courtesy of Kathryn Curry

The Homecoming committee arranges the annual theme week. The theme week will take place from Oct. 2 to Oct. 6 with Games Night and the Homecoming dance taking place throughout the week.

“The Homecoming Committee is made up of 15 students who applied to be a member,” Homecoming adviser Kathryn Curry said. “They brought their theme day ideas to our first meeting last week. We then went through the ideas as a group and decided on ideas that were not done last year to avoid repetitiveness. We also took logistics into consideration like PJ Day on Monday and dressing like Adam Sandler Day on the day of the dance. We held a majority vote on some ideas that we couldn’t decide on. We hope there is excitement around the chosen days.”

All students and staff are encouraged to take part in the themes each day.

Jaidyn Palladini, Editor in Chief
Hello, I'm Jaidyn, and I'm a senior at AAHS. This is my third year writing for the Mountain Echo. I am also an Editor in Chief this year! My favorite hobby is twirling, and I also do photography as a side job for family, friends, etc. A fun fact about me is that I work on the Production Team at the Altoona Curve where I take part in photography, videography, and graphics. Other than being on the staff, I am also very involved when it comes to school. I am involved in Majorettes, Chorus, Drama, and Vocal Ensemble. I found a passion for writing towards the end being in junior high and it has gotten me to where I am now. When I get older, I will be majoring in Digital Journalism and Media with a minor in Sports Studies and a certificate in Sports Journalism. I will be attending Penn State University when I graduate high school and I hope to twirl with the Blue Band. I'm looking forward to what this year has to bring to me, and I'm happy to keep you all updated on events going on here! Thanks for checking in! :)
