August 25th was a day of celebrating the end of the three weeks, otherwise known as “Freshman First”. The Back to School BBQ was that night. The freshman and upperclassmen met one other and many friendships came about. It was a great start to the new school year for everybody.

The dance, afterwards, was talked about all over the school. A large majority of the comments from the students were very positive and many were glad that they had attended. The dance created many new memories for all that went.

“It was great! The music was pretty good and fun!” Aubrey Thompson, a freshman, said.

Sophomore Klara Kottke’s perspective was that the BBQ dance was fun and she liked hanging out with her friends.

“I thought that it was okay, but not as good as previous ones. I was not a fan of the music but it was still fun,” said junior Trent Thompson.

“It was poppin’ and I’m stoked for the Halloween one! Especially if everyone is in costumes and stuff, it’ll be really sweet,” said Audrey Barbe, a senior who is new to the school.

The BBQ had a $5 admission price that supplied the students with food before the dance which included burgers, chips, soda and hot dogs. Mini water bottles during the dance were also included.

The dance was overall very casual. The dance floor was very simple with a disco ball. The tables that the water bottles sat on were decorated with lights. Around the dance floor there were chairs set up for the students to sit down and chat with friends. Students also had the option to go outside for a breath of fresh air. The atmosphere was relaxing and easygoing.
