Winter Formal will take place on Jan. 25, from 7-9:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale in the activities office and cost $10 today and tomorrow.
Thursday, tickets will be $12, and Friday, they will be $15.
Students will be required to abide by the dress code which Coach Cliff Ice described as business casual. This means no jeans or no admittance.
The DJ this year will be TKO DJs. It’s changing from previous years due to students liking the crowd participation the DJs incorporated. The STUCO made sure to keep this in mind while they chose the soundtrack and changed the DJ.
STUCO is expanding student impact on Winter Formal Court nominations. There are four students nominated for each grade and one male and female per grade will win at the dance.
The theme this year will be Black and White.
“We wanted to keep things simple and make sure that it’s not too tacky. This also keeps it more formal since we’ve changed the name to the Winter Formal,” Patrick Lee, senior on STUCO, said.
The Winter Formal is anticipated to be a lot smaller than the Friendship Dance, like it generally is every year, but this is an aspect that students seem to prefer compared to the Friendship Dance being very crowded and full of people.
“People who go to the Winter Formal seem to go to just have fun and have a good time, whereas with the Friendship Dance you get people who just go for the tradition,” Lee said.
This is news and opinion editor Elise Wilke-Grimm’s first year on ECHO staff. She is excited to begin work on the ECHO and get lots of chances to write.
