Falcons shut down Homecoming Weekend with a bang

The past week at Crescenta Valley High School has been nothing but good vibes all around!

On Oct. 9, ASB of CVHS put together one of the sweetest homecoming assemblies the school has ever seen! Themed ‘Candyland’, each class was named accordingly; Fudgy Freshman, Swirly Sophomores, Jolly Juniors, and Sweet Seniors. Stunned by the amazing performances put together by all the different activity groups, the students of CV were extremely excited when introduced to their 2015 Homecoming Court which was beautifully composed of Brandon Lim, Brooke Bell, Zachary Johnson, Anna Shim, Alex Jilizian, Isabel Wright, Xia Velasco Mayner, Jae Min Lee, Elliot Lee, Audrey Black, Elizabeth Hart and Stefan Korneras.

Monday through Friday were spirit days, trying to get all of campus adrenalized for homecoming the following Saturday! Beginning with Multiple Monday, Tourist Tuesday, Workout Wednesday, Tie-dye Thursday, and closing the week off very elegantly with Fancy Friday.


On Oct. 16, an alumnus of Crescenta Valley High School presented to students a golden football from the NFL, which symbolizes a former alum who had made a Super Bowl appearance. Mike Hull, former NFL player, spoke of persistence, and finding the one thing you are good at in order to “elevate yourself and those around you”. He gracefully closed off leaving the student body with the following, “The falcon itself is an example of a soaring, wonderful, insightful keen-eyed, enduring creature. That was one of the reasons we picked it. This was the beginning. This is why this homecoming is so wonderful.”

Undeniably ramped up, the CVHS varsity football team along with the student body, was ready for the great showdown that night against Muir High School. Coach Schilling told the Glendale News Press that the team has “taken the approach of having the rest of our games be like playoff games,” and it sure did pay off! Closing the game out, 40 – 27, the falcons had done it once again!

Homecoming was finally here, and seeing everyone on the dance floor after such a hectic few weeks for us all was quite indescribable.

The dance was held at the Gene Autry Museum with special guest student DJ Gabe Torrone, better known as DJ Gravity!

Great work to you all, Falcons!

And happy homecoming to the rest!
