This year, Morgan’s Homecoming festivities include some new events along with the activities enjoyed for years. 

The Homecoming Dance is taking place on Saturday, November 10th at 7-10pm.  This year’s theme for homecoming is a harvest autumn theme. According to Sophomore Ciro Falanga, the “color schemes of the night will be browns, oranges, yellows, dark reds, black and colors associated with Thanksgiving.”  Ciro also shared that students sent a playlist to the DJ to ensure “some really good dancing songs that have a nice active rhythm which will keep you up and moving instead of just bouncing to a rhythm-less club beat.” 

From 6pm- 7pm before the Homecoming Dance, there will be a new event: Mocktail Hour. Hors-d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.  Light music will play and there will be some sort of card game tournament. Tickets will not be available at the door for Mocktail Hour.  There is also a limited number of tickets available.  Mocktail Hour tickets must be purchased along with the Homecoming Dance ticket either in the morning or during the three lunch waves. The cost of the tickets for the Mocktail Hour and dance is $10.   

Before you buy your tickets make sure to stop by the office to check if you have any liabilities.  Forms for guests who do not attend Morgan are in the main office.
