Rain pushed the '90s day party on Nov. 19 from outside into the cafeteria during lunch. It didn't dampen enthusiasm for the event.
Students enjoyed the music atmosphere and throwbacks while they ate their lunch.
Jenise Middleton, freshman, liked the music and loved the mix of the '80s and '90s fashion. Her favorite song was from the '90s by Aaliyah, "At Your Best You Are Love."
Makenzie Johnson, also a freshman, said the music from TLC was her favorite.
"All of their music had meaningful messages," she said of the group.  "The '90s was a great time period where great legends were born."
Junior Harold Smith said he enjoyed the Atlanta Braves baseball team, Jordan's footwear, the box top haircuts and the gold chain fashion. He also admired watching Ed, Edd and Eddy Television show on Cartoon Network from the '90s, plus Looney Tunes and Martin.
Derrek Long, senior, said he enjoyed the Adidas footwear, FUBU, Sean John and FILAS fashion. "The '90s lifestyle was great and they knew how to party and have fun," he said.
Junior Trey Law said he enjoyed the hip hop music of the '90s such as Biggie Smalls and Tupac.
"The two of them were both legendary," he said. "You can't mention hip hop without mentioning them."
Sophomore Austin Lawton said he loved the style and swag of the '90s.
"Hey, Arnold was my show, and I loved how Aaliyah promoted Tommy Hilfiger. She was bae," he said.
Allegra Porte, freshman, said she liked Destiny Child's music of the '90s.
Freshman ZiZi Porter said she loved Missy Elliot's songs.
Juleanna Thorpe, senior, said the '90s was the period that gave birth to the generation of today.
"It helped shape our era now," she said. "'90s is where the chocker came from, and how the fashion continues to repeat itself and come back."
It's what we were raised with, from watching Rugrats, Power Puff Girls, All That, Fresh Prince of Bell Air etc. to the AIM Instant messages in email."
