Let’s Go to Barbie’s HOCO, Shall We?

Homecoming– the memorable experience high schoolers look forward to every year to spend with their friends, whether they’ve enjoyed the year or not. The dance, which usually follows Spirit Week, allows everyone to get hyped and involved, so why do teenagers doubt the fun? Put on your suit ties and dresses because this year, Mountain View prepared a Barbie-themed HOCO.

Every party needs an eyecatcher, a significance that students bring home with them. “I’d have to give a shout-out to the welcoming Barbie land sign,” said Victoria Norman, 12. “I first noticed the giant Barbie sign in the front,” said Caleb Reed, 11.

It isn’t Barbie’s HOCO without a warm pink welcome from Barbie. A homecoming party isn’t right either without the proposals, but what fun would it be for everyone to ask each other the same way? “This one guy did it at the homecoming football game, where he had cheerleaders hold up HOCO letters,” said Reed. “I really liked Bella and Jake’s because he asked her to a country song,” said Norman. Although there are a variety of ways to ask someone to HOCO, ultimately, a dance wouldn’t be a dance without the music.

Music greatly affects the energy that students bring to the party. In order to contribute to this, many students feel they should be able to send in their own playlists. “I think students should be able to send in their own songs; that way, students would enjoy the night more. They even took requests this year, but the songs I requested never played,” said Norman. While everyone’s music tastes differ, our school wants everyone to enjoy the party.

A party isn’t a party without the aftermath and thoughts that evolve in our heads. “The welcome to Barbie Land sign and boxes were my favorite. I also got to take pictures in the Barbie and Ken boxes, so I think it was fun, as it wasn’t as dark as last year, which I enjoyed,” said Norman. “The crowd in the middle was fun, and the decorations were cool, but I wish the music was better,” said Reed. However, every experience was different; this year, the overall experience seemed exciting. So let’s go party!
