It’s Lights Out for the Neon Dance

By Madeline Swank

The 2nd annual Neon Dance, hosted by the sophomore class, would have occurred Saturday, February 8th, but was cancelled due to a lack of interest.

“We didn’t have enough people that bought tickets, so we wouldn’t have made a profit,” said sophomore class president Emma Greene. “To be honest, I have no idea why it happened. It’s disappointing because a lot of people went to it last year (400 students), and this year we couldn’t even get 90.”

Students who wanted a refund could turn in their ticket to Mrs. Pellicano, one of the librarians.

“I had volleyball so I couldn’t attend, but I was surprised it was cancelled,” added sophomore  Sara Forbes.

“I’m sad because I really wanted to go to a dance that wasn’t formal, and I was looking forward to having a good time,” said sophomore Luisa Santos.

Greene commented on the possibility of the sophomore class hosting another dance or rescheduling Neon Night, saying, “It may happen if the student body wants it, but there doesn’t seem to be a desire for one so probably not.”
