The ticket deadline is extended to Tuesday for the first Lee County High School winter formal. Assistant principal Marissa Fux worked with student government to create the idea for the dance.
LCHS decided to host the winter formal as a way to reward students who are passing three out of four the first semester.
The decision to hold the formal in February rather than December was made because they wanted to wait for the new semester to start and for everyone to get settled into their classes.
The winter formal was difficult to set up said Fux.
“Setting up any type of event there’s always a lot of running pieces, there’s going to be things that keep going right and wrong,” Fux explained, “but there is a lot of cooperation and we were working with a lot of different people a lot of different personalities and a lot of different ideas and so when your delegating task it becomes a little bit more difficult because you have to know your people.”
Fux got together with the student government, run by Biology teacher Samantha Biles, PTSO, and the culture team full of staff and student ambassadors all came together to create this dance for the students to have an opportunity to get more involved with school in a fun and interactive way.
“We want to do things for our students,” Fux said. “We want to do things to make them feel happy and safe and comfortable at our school and giving them opportunities to mingle and talk and be teenagers and be social this is the time they can do that and it is a safe place for them to do it at.”
Many people came together to create this dance to congratulate students for passing the first semester. You may even get to see Sargent Rosser doing the Macarena.
The winter formal will be held February 11 in the LCHS cafeteria from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. You can buy tickets through Tuesday in the cafeteria during all lunch periods. The tickets are one for $15 or two for $25.
