Mount Carmel is known for its energetic and boisterous homecoming dances, but due to COVID-19, this year’s event has been postponed.  However, the student council is working hard on planning a safe and fun homecoming dance later this school year.

Student Council Vice President Luka DiFilippo, and Moderator, Mr. Brooks Nevrly, discussed the goals and plans that the student council has for this year in meetings on Wednesday, September 23, and Thursday, September 24.  The  council met in Nevrly’s classroom, Room 307.

Embarking on the school year full of changes, the student council now has more weight on its shoulders, having to rethink and replace past events that are not safe for students and faculty. More meetings will take place this year to account for the need for extra planning, and a meeting will be held on September 24 and 25 for students interested in joining the student council.

According to DiFillipo the student council has many priorities like adjusting the hair rule and planning homecoming week, students in every grade level are eager to know when or if a homecoming dance will take place this year. 

Unfortunately, after going over possible alternatives, (i.e. having the dance in Indiana or on the football field) it’s clear homecoming is not going to happen this fall,

“There is no way to have a homecoming dance that is fun and safe right now.” said DiFillipo. 

However, Nevrly is hopeful that a homecoming dance might be held “in the spring.”
