Senior class to host Homecoming bonfire

On Friday, Oct. 6 the Class of 2024 will host a bonfire on the softball field from 6-9 p.m.  

Tickets for the event are $5 with proceeds paying for the expenses, such as a police officer, the wood, a fire permit and concessions. 

For  years,  the senior class has organized a bonfire during the Homecoming Week. According to senior class president Abdalla Faiad, the tradition has made a mark on the community. “The fire brings the school community together,” he said.

The planning of the bonfire requires a lot of time and money, said Class of 2024 senator Gavin Currier.  .

”The bonfire is very expensive to run,so we’re hoping for enough people to offset the cost,” said Currier. 

The cost of hosting the bonfire will be around $300, said Currier, so  will need  to sell at least 60 tickets to break even.

“[Bonfires are] like a family meal, so why not get together and talk?” Currier said.

There will be a spikeball tournament at the bonfire with cash prizes for winners.
