Despite the gloomy weather and sinking temperatures,  Citrus Valley High School’s many clubs and ASB set up booths, floats and activities to fundraise and celebrate the day before the school’s much-anticipated homecoming on Sept. 28, 2019.

During the hectic day, class periods were only 25 minutes long, the first rally of the year took place, Fall Festival began right after school and, lastly, Citrus Valley’s varsity football played against Grand Terrace High where, at halftime, the Homecoming King and Queen were revealed.

Fall Festival itself was full of excitement as students enjoyed the various foods and drinks sold by clubs, the live performances and the simple joy spending time together.

Many clubs sold out quickly and are excited to begin planning how the funds will go toward their mission or activities. Sophia Cantuba, president of Make-A-Wish Club, is happy to announce that the club is “donating [all proceeds] to the Make-A-Wish foundation” to help fulfill sick childrens’ wishes.
