RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - A time-honored tradition will be presented with a time-related theme October 5 when Cordova High School has its Homecoming.

“Dancing through the Decades” is the theme for the floats set to be featured at halftime of the Cordova High varsity football game. The senior class has the 1990s, the juniors the ’80s, the sophomores the ’70s and the freshmen the ’60s.

Students from each class spent afternoons and early evenings this week assembling their floats.

“We definitely took in some of the ideas of the ’80s being shared in pop culture today,” said publicity representative Cyara Miller, a junior. “We’re asking our parents for help, too.”

Rough drafts for float design were turned in two weeks prior to Homecoming week, according to Miller. Each of the classes gathered their materials with the help of their class adviser and by using funds from within their class budget, she said.

“Of course we’re all very excited,” Miller said last week about Homecoming. “We’re entering Homecoming Mode to help our class show our school spirit.”

Spirit days this week include Traffic Light Monday, where students wore colors coded to their relationship status, and Athletes Day, when there was a Lancer Olympics Rally. Twinsday Wednesday, Decade Theme Day and Fired Up Friday rounded out the spirit days.

“It’s all about showing how much we love to show our school spirit,” said Baylee Rogerson, another publicity representative.

Alumni will be invited to join the class floats in a parade at halftime of the football game, a 7 p.m. Greater Sacramento League contest against Florin.

Miller also mentioned an alumni dinner before the game “so that people can reunite.”
