As expected, the Freshman Dance really did “glow” the minds of many last night. With a theme of ‘glow in the dark,’ The Class of 2016 officers and representatives decorated the cafeteria, hallways and even the courtyards with luminating paraphernalia to set the mood. The hallways were clad in signs with clever puns such as “glow big or glow home” and “glow with the flow.” There was even a Glow Garden in the courtyard, which consisted of long glow sticks sticking out of the grass, which could be viewed in the breezeway between C-Wing and F-Wing.

“We think this could be the greatest Freshman Dance that’s ever occurred, not just in this school, but ever, in any school,” said Mr. Greg Gagliardi, Freshman Class Advisor along with Ms. Katie Kelly. “We [were] especially happy with our food this year. We [had] popcorn chicken, onion rings, we [had] a popcorn machine, we [had] mozzarella sticks,” he said.

Many students were involved in the planning process of this event and were extremely impressed with the final outcome.

“We spent every day in homeroom setting up, making posters, and just getting ready,” said Ali Grossman (’16), a Freshman Class SGA Representative.

“The preparation process was very smooth,” said Kennedy Omari (’16), Freshman Class President. “Making it from a sketch to an idea and formulating it and creating it into what it is now was pretty seamless…and I was happy with that.”

In the end, all of the preparation culminated into a successful event, and as intended, the dance really did shine for the nearly 500 people in attendance.
