Homecoming week at Jefferson City High School consists of a build up of events that lead to the dance. After participating in spirit days and preparing to make everything perfect for the dance, everything can become rapidly expensive. The price range differentiates between boys and girls for several reasons.

“Girls want their homecoming to be perfect,” junior Shelby Clark said. “They try to do everything they can to make it that way no matter how much the cost is.”

Senior Isaac Moreland agreed.

“Even though the boys have to pay for dinner and flowers, nothing can top the prices of some of those dresses,” Moreland said.

On average, girls usually spend at least a couple hundred dollars more than boys. However, girls need to keep in mind that there are multiple ways to stay on budget. A lot of girls borrow dresses, shoes, or jewelry from a friend or family member. No matter how much you spend on your homecoming experience, the JCHS dance floor is always a pleasurable time.
