Middle School’s Christmas Dance: Senior’s Reflection

Trinity Polk, Editor in Chief

As the well-known Dr. Seuss states, “Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” The Class of 2022 seniors take a stroll down memory lane as we reminisce about our past middle school winter dances. We recall how, back the day, everyone talked about the upcoming dance and it was definitely something everyone looked forward to attending.  Some of us even remember a teacher saying she would give us a free one hundred if we danced with someone!

When we think back to our first dance, we get a good laugh as we remember the fun and embarrassing memories of the night.And most of us will never forget the iconic dance battles. Senior, Nicolaus Ray, recalls having a dance battle with one of the sixth graders and just enjoying the event. Nicolaus said, “My favorite thing about it was being dressed up with my friends and having fun… I enjoyed it.”

Senior, Eimi Ezquerra adds, “One of the things I remember about the winter dance is dancing with all my friends and having funny dance battles”; her favorite thing about the dance was the amazing food.

Another Senior, Danielle Rangel, also mentions, “I remember dancing with my friends and having fun. I would say my favorite part about it was that it was chill and fun; we were all just having fun together. It was chill because we didn’t have to wear anything fancy.”

With the dance right around the corner, we asked some middle schoolers if they are excited about the dance and what they were most looking forward to.

Eighth-grader, Rome Stanford, states, “I am looking forward to having a good time with my friends.”

Another eighth-grader, William Werlein, explains how he doesn’t know what to expect yet as it is his first-ever winter dance, but adds, “I am mainly excited to be with the boys and just having a good time and looking forward to dancing.”

Then, Natalie Bohannon, eighth-grader, added that this year they are expecting better food, games, and even more fun.

The dance is taking place this week, December 17th, in the school’s gym from 7 to 10 PM. Tickets are $10 online and $15 at the door. Pizza and drinks are also provided for one dollar each.

On behalf of all the seniors, we hope the middle schoolers will have an amazing time at the dance and enjoy the moment; in a blink of an eye, these great moments can turn into lifelong memories.
