Homecoming Dance Replaced with Winter Formal

For the first time in over five years, the Wylie High School Student Council is putting on a Winter dance called The Wylie Winter Wonderland.

STUCO members have made a vast number of changes this year to get more students attention and involved with school-based activities. This year STUCO hosted a Homecoming tailgate party instead of a traditional dance; however, the student body has spoken, and they want a dance. In order to make this new dance better than the Homecoming dance, changes have been made. There will be: a professional DJ, multiple decorations and lots of delicious food.

“The dance is going to be the best thing ever,” Junior Class President Amie Faal said. “We have added all these new ideas to help and attract more students.”

Over two months have been spent securing decorations and extras for this dance, and they even have a giant professionally made wooden snowflake.

“We have put so much time and energy into the decorations,” Sponsor Teri Harrington said. “The kids have paid attention to every detail; the music, decorations, everything.”

The superlatives have been announced and voted on, so it’s time now to celebrate them and the Winter Wonderland will be the even that pulls all of the classes together in a fun venue.

“Being a Senior Homecoming nominee, I was disappointed there wasn’t a dance,” Senior Thalia Gonzalez said. “I can’t wait till the Winter Wonderland Dance and the announcement of the winners.”

Student council will be offering tickets for sale the week leading to the dance for $5 during lunches and $7 at the door.

“Not only will the generous admission price get you a night of fun, but one dollar of every ticket sold will go to charity,” Junior Class Vice President Jenna Boehm said. “It’s a double win!”
