Homecoming 2023: Out of This World (Literally)

Chamblee’s 2023 homecoming dance, picturing one of the chaperones and the guests’ view.

While Chamblee High School’s Student Government Association (SGA) has always been in search of creative themes for the annual homecoming dance, none have come close to the extravagance of this year’s “out of this world” dance.

“I walked into the school and was immediately escorted through this shimmery circular door. It was insane,” said Oblivi Us (‘24). “I mean, yeah, the edges were wavering and the whole thing was emitting a weird low-pitched humming noise, but who am I to judge the decorating committee?”

After entering, attendees were whisked away for a night of dancing under the stars.

“The visuals were so realistic, I mean I felt like we were really in space! They even made us wear oxygen tanks and helmets and everything before entering,” said Partay Luvr (‘25).

Those who refused to darn the headgear and get into the spirit of the dance were escorted off the premises.

“I didn’t want to like ruin my hair, you know? I literally just made it the perfect amount of messy, yet not too messy bruh,” said Narr Cissist (‘26). “But when I told them to chill with the helmet, this weird-looking chaperone kicked me out. Not cool man.”

Some of the other students also had unusual encounters with the volunteers present at the dance.

“I was in line for those bomb chicken nuggets, you already know! But when I got up to the stand, the person working there was like yea high,” said Duiza Louglas (‘24), gesturing at her knee. “I low key grabbed my nuggies and sped-walked away, but I swear they had green skin or something.”

Several students even spotted some of Chamblee’s most prolific personas in attendance.

“I think I spotted that lady who supplies Magic Carrots, and also the BotMan Robot that ruined that one kid’s hair or something,” said Nervis Wrek (‘27).

Attendees generally reported positive experiences despite a few technical mishaps throughout the night.

“At one point, the music randomly cut out in the middle of a song. We heard some static and crackling over the speakers, and then some random robotic voice came on saying something about how Earth is facing inevitable doom and takeover or something. I didn’t really pay attention to be honest—my friends and I were a bit ‘spaced out’ if you know what I mean,” said Randy Rando (‘25), dramatically winking.

All-in-all, the SGA is proud to have pulled off another successful homecoming, and is excited for next year.

“I think the dance went really well this year! Everyone seemed to be having fun and really enjoying the view of the Earth,” said student body president Lianna Brin (‘24). “Well, I mean besides the unfortunate souls that were beamed up to the chaperones’ vehicle…but I’m sure they are doing okay! It’s probably some sort of exclusive party bus or something. Besides that, anyone who else is hating—well you know what they say: ‘dab on ‘em haters.’”
