WEB EXCLUSIVE Student council members gathered during lunch in the nook on the 2nd floor of the Flood Mansion to finalize plans for the Tropical Glow Dance on Friday.

Tropical Glow is a blend of Hawaiian and glow in the dark themes, so there will be leis, a fire pit, and glowsticks, according to Sophomore Class Representative Tabitha Parent.

“There will be tons of games, like cornhole and limbo, smores, dancing and other snacks,” Parent said. “It’s going to be lots of fun.”

One change from prior years discussed during the meeting is that the dance will be free to attend, and the costs will be made up in the future.

“It is a way of trying to encourage everyone to come,” Spirit Representative Wellsley Cohen said. “Because it is the first dance of the year, we find it is a good way to meet people and have fun before we get caught up in our school work.”

Members of student council divided up roles during the meeting for decorating, overseeing food, facilitating games and cleaning up to ensure that the dance goes as smoothly as possible.

“This is a very strong student government that we have this year,” Paul Pryor Lorentz, High School Chair of Community Life, said. “I think everyone’s coming in with a really positive and proactive attitude.”

The dance will be held at the Pine-Octavia campus on Friday from 6-8 p.m.

“Everyone should try to come,” Cohen said. “It is going to be a fun start to the school year.”
