Jupiter High School’s 2023 Homecoming festivities, put together by the Student Government Association (SGA), will run from Oct. 9-13, ending with the dance held in the JHS Gymnasium from 7:00–10:00p.m. 

Homecoming activities will begin with spirit days, starting off with dynamic duo day, followed by generation day, Barbie vs. Ken and finally class colors. The Homecoming pep rally will also take place during this week. 

This year’s homecoming theme is “Masquerade Ball,” an event historically featuring music and dancing while wearing an elaborately decorated masque, made popular in the 1700’s in Europe. 

The homecoming carnival will take place Thursday, Oct. 12, from 4:30-6:00p.m.

“There will be a cook and bake club stand, agriculture, lots of fundraising being done. We will have games there as well.It’s fun right before the football game,” Ella Nordhoff, senior, said. 

Following the carnival, Jupiter High will be taking on Palm Beach Lakes High School at 6:30 for the traditional homecoming game. 

As of Sept. 11, all students were able to pick up a contract from the SGA courtyard during both lunches. Students will not be permitted to purchase a ticket without a signed contract. Once your contract is signed and submitted, you will receive an email to purchase your ticket through cashless schools.  

“It has to do with the counting procedures from the county that if you do half and half, some online and some in person it made the bookkeeping process very messy,” Micheal Deleondardo, head of SGA, said. “There is no threat of anybody losing anything, and it’s just safer and more responsible in the terms of accounting and bookkeeping.”

The process for getting tickets has changed since previous years. Everything is now digital to make it safer, easier and more efficient. 

“So that’s kind of the process, you turn in your contract and then once all of those are submitted, people are gonna get emailed links for their ticket, so it’s gonna be all online,” Lauren Strayer, senior and SGA fundraising chair, said. 

Sales will open to seniors on Sept. 18 and to all other students on Sept. 20 and will run through Oct. 6. Tickets will cost $25, but they are limited and expected to sell out fast. 

Students interested in bringing a guest, will need to pick up a guest contract, have it signed and bring it back to SGA. Guest tickets will go on sale on Oct. 2. SGA is only selling 1200-1300 tickets. 

“Get your tickets as soon as possible, they sell out fast,” Strayer said.
