Homecoming: An evening under the midnight sky


Under the rigid weather and the deep midnight sky, Cathedral Prep students came alive with the magic of Homecoming Saturday night. The Joann Mullen Gymnasium air was filled with excitement, and the stars above seemed to twinkle in anticipation of the evening’s festivities.

With loads of planning taking place by the Student Council, Ms. Mackensen, Student Council Advisor, was very excited with the turnout.

“Having 660 students under one roof was a really great turnout that wasn’t expected,” Ms. Mackensen said. For the first time in school history, the entire school had a voice in the outcome of the theme’s dance and our partnership with the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) for scenery came out to be  quite successful. [Junior] Nhu Tran created a fantastic mural that complimented the theme really well, and I am just happy with the turnout.”

For the seniors, attending Homecoming for the last time was pretty surreal. Senior Kaylin Laird gave some insight into what it meant to participate in her last homecoming dance.

“Attending the dance for the last time was very bittersweet,” Kaylin said. “We went from having no homecoming dance our freshman year due to COVID-19 to having one our senior year being together under the Prep family. The dance was a lot of fun, and I had a blast being around the entire senior class and the underclassmen as well.”

With all the pent-up anticipation of the school community through spirit week and discussions that took place throughout the hallway expressed on the dance floor, it seems like Hoco 2023 was a night to remember.
