Fitch High School students danced the night away during the school’s annual homecoming Sept. 29.
Hundreds of students eagerly walked into the high school dressed to impress with elegant gowns and suits. The evening provided a much-needed stress reliever for some students, who were just happy to be able to have fun with their friends.
“I love getting dressed up and it’s just a break from school because we don’t get to have this much fun on a regular basis,” said Sarah Melfu.
Teachers also chaperoned the event and were just as happy as their students. English teacher and homecoming coordinator Jennifer Leugers was appreciative of all the students’ hard work and dedication to make the event possible.
“We have to have a lot of student involvement. They sacrifice a lot of their time coming after school and coming early in the morning to decorate and I think the kids need to let loose and have some fun in a safe environment and show a different side of themselves,” Leugers said.
The highlight of the event was crowning the school’s homecoming king and queen, which were Kyle Moore and Mariah DeFuria. The two were surprised, yet honored to be chosen.
“I had no expectations. It feels great to win and knowing that your school voted for you,” said Moore.
