A Night in Paris at UDHS: Coronation Ball 2016


Following a very exciting spirit week and a dominant homecoming football game this past week, Upper Dublin High School hosted its annual Coronation Ball. This school-wide homecoming dance was held from 7:30 to 10:30 PM in the school gym. This year’s theme was ‘A Night in Paris.’ When students first walked into the school, they were greeted by a glowing Eiffel Tower, followed by wonderful hallway decorations. Inside the unlit gym, the DJ played a mix of modern hits and up-beat classics.

For the freshmen, it was their very first Coronation experience. Freshmen Annie Cheng and Megan O’Halloran said together, “Our first coronation experience was amazing. The music was awesome and the decorations were incredible. We had a memorable time dancing with our friends.”

Other students also enjoyed their time at Coronation as well. Junior Julie Ostroff comments, “This was definitely the best coro yet! The theme was great and I had a really nice time overall.”

Towards the latter half of the night, the members of the Homecoming Court were escorted into the gym, and the homecoming queen and king were announced. The 2016 Homecoming Queen was Kinu Aneja and the King was Kyle Lee.

The Homecoming King, on his last coronation experience, said, “The SGA really did an awesome job with the Paris theme, and it felt like the entire school came together and had a fun time. Being crowned Homecoming King was a special experience. My 6 year old sister came to watch and the look on her face was priceless- a memory I’ll never forget. I’d like to also give a shoutout to all the other homecoming court members who deserved it as much as I did. A huge thank you to everyone who voted for me!”

Coronation was definitely a special experience this year. Thank you to the SGA, teachers, faculty and staff members who helped to make this amazing event possible. Until next year!
