This past Sunday night, October 1st, 2017, Las Vegas experienced the biggest mass shooting in modern American History. During the closing night of the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, Jason Aldean’s set came to a sudden halt when random and continuous gunshots were heard in the venue. We later find out that this open fire was coming from a 32nd floor window of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Behind the numerous number of automatic rifles was 64-year old man, Stephen Paddock.
On September 29th approximately 4,500 students, staff, and parents gathered to watch the very first homecoming game of West Clermont High School. There was no hiding the football teams 4th win of the season with an ending score of 37-7. There was nothing but smiles, happiness, and a genuine sense of achievement from players, fans, and coaches.

When going to homecoming there’s always that question, would it be better to go with a date or just a group of friends? And whenever you ask people their personal opinions, there’s always a mix of what the answer is. So what is better, going with a date or going without a date?
Going with no date means you don’t have to worry about being asked or asking anyone, it’s just you and your friends so there’s no fiasco of trying to match your dates clothing either. You get to go with your friends and have a good time and get to goof around all you want. You can have a drama and jealousy free night on the dance floor if you or your date dance with someone else throughout the night because you don’t have one! Get out there and dance with whoever you want!
During the pep rally last Friday they announced the homecoming court for the homecoming dance taking place the following day. Students in each grade nominated the winners of the court. Click here to see who won!
The competition this year for the design contest for the floats was really hard. All of the floats were amazingly done and everyone who was a part of it should be really proud of themselves. Student council for each grade had to choose a movie to decorate their float. All the classes chose great movies this year and they were able to decorate their floats amazingly. It was a very tough competition this year so if you were a part of it be proud even if you didn’t win because your work payed off at the very end. The Freshmen Float theme was West Side Story. The Freshmen didn’t place in the design contest or the spirit contest but they did have a pretty cool float. They showed some school spirit too by adding the wolves vs tigers signs for our homecoming football game on the float. Good job Freshman on your float it is really well done.
The Sophomore Float theme was Singing in the Rain. This year the Sophomores won the first ever West Clermont float contest. They did not place in the spirit contest but you can’t win everything. The cool thing about their float was that they wrote every sophomores name onto the bricks on the float. Good job Sophomore’s this year on your win.
The Juniors Float them was James Bond. They placed second in the spirit contest with a 37%. They didn’t place in the design contest but they did have an amazing float and by the way they placed in the spirit competition it sounds like they had a blast making it. So congrats Junior’s on your second in the spirit contest.
The Senior Float theme was The Wizard of Oz. The Senior’s got a second in the design contest and a first in the spirit contest with a 49%. The Senior’s had an amazing float and were having a great time building the it. The Senior’s are also the only class that placed in both competitions this year so congratulations on that.
Congratulations to all student council members for your amazing floats. Sophomore’s good job on your win in the design contest. Junior’s good job for your second in the spirit contest. Senior’s great job with your win in the spirit contest and your second in the design contest. Freshmen better luck next year but you did an amazing job. Lucky for you guys you got another three years. Senior’s good job on your last ever homecoming float in High School.
