For seventeen years I have attended high school dances as a teacher or administrator...this year's Homecoming was the best and most classiest dance that I have ever chaperoned. I am so grateful to the 722 students that attended. I am so proud of the work and efforts of Ms. Ann Grantham and our student leaders. Their vision, creativity, and focus created an arena of energy! CHS Hallway was transformed into a mini haunted hallway. Special thanks to the teachers, and staff that welcomed (or spooked) the students and guests as they walked the eerie path to the dance floor.
Four years ago, our students and staff came together to create norms for high school dances. The students wanted to change the culture of how students should conduct themselves at dances. Every dance (since the inception of the dance contract) created the opportunity for cultural change for dance norms. This year, with 722 students present, no wristbands were taken--and only five students were asked to take a break from dancing. Students could be seen dancing to the Electric Slide, Macarena, The Safety Dance, along with a blend of the students favorites. Nothing is better than watching our students sing and dance to Mambo #5, and Cotton Eyed Joe.
Leadership is a shared responsibility. As we shared in the beginning of the year: Coming together is just the beginning, staying together will lead our progress, and working together will transform lives for generations of Hilltoppers.
Thank you for sharing your children with us!
