Dancing to the ‘70s with weather in the 90s
October 24, 2017
In honor of spirit week’s “Groovy ‘70s Tuesday,” ASB put on a ‘70s dance party during homeroom. The event was held in the courtyard of the new building and featured far-out ‘70s hits along with a homeroom flag competition. Many students joined in on the fun, despite the blazing sun and mid-90 degree temperature.
“I thought it was a lot of fun. I had
a great time there.” Senior Kat Weinzierl said. “I liked it when they invited everyone up onstage and we all did the cupid shuffle, I thought that was really cool.” Although the crowd took some time to warm up, songs like “September,” “Y.M.C.A.,” “Cha Cha Slide,” and “Dancing Queen” got people dancing. Not all of the songs were from the ‘70s, but they excited the crowd nonetheless.
With such groovy beats, many SDA students and faculty alike got into the ‘70s spirit. “I even saw a few teachers dancing,” freshman Hunter Suhonen said.
The event was also a time to show homeroom spirit. Junior Makenzie Moe said, “My whole homeroom is all of my friends, so all of us just went down and just danced, and I love dancing. It was just so, so, fun.”
Homerooms also brought their flags down to be judged by Homeroom Olympics in the hopes of earning points. Suhonen said, “I thought it was pretty cool how there were all those flags that people were holding up.” Some flags included that of the social studies teacher Jamie Duck’s Boy’s Water Polo Homeroom, which had a stuffed duck taped to it, science teacher Eric Smith’s homeroom, which had a photo of all of his students, and counselor Anne Nebolon’s PALs homeroom, which was supported by two separate poles.
Junior Katie Hostetler said, “Even though it was super hot today, Ifergan needs Homeroom Olympic points and I love to have school spirit.”
Many students expressed similar sentiments. Moe, who enjoyed the dancing, said, “I hate the heat so much. I would rather it have poured during the dance party than have it be 90 degrees.”
Weinzierl said, “The heat wasn’t so great, but that’s not something you can control.”
“It was kinda sweaty, but totally worth it,” Moe said.
