On February 14, our very own Students Council took the reigns – and the afternoon – into their own hands to host a Valentines Dance. The afternoon was filled with music and dancing, candies and treats, and a photobooth hosted by our very own Ms. Carlson! It was a grand show of student work and creativity – all of the decorations were created by students (with guidance from Ms. Carlson – a million thank yous!), the treats were baked and candy-grams bagged by students, and the dance was DJ’d by students! GO KNIGHTS! There were also a few smaller activities hosted by teachers around the school for those who prefer to share the love without dancing — thanks to Mr. Vanden Broek for movies and Mr. Gardener for board games and Kahoot.
Before students left the school to continue their Valentine festivities, Mr. Porretta decided to show them his appreciation with heart-shaped cookies baked by our lovely cafeteria crew Sylvie and Johann.
Photos from the dance can be found on the GCHS Facebook. Thank you to everyone who was involved in making the afternoon a special Valentine’s treat!
