The fall formal this year is going to be a Sadie Hawkins dance that is set on the date of November 19th. It is going to take place in the New Gym from 7pm to 11pm.
Sadie Hawkins is a dance where the girl asks the boy. But, who is this Sadie Hawkins person? The tradition of girl-asks-boy comes from a comic strip.
In a famous cartoon-musical, “Li’l Abner,” there was a certain day in November where unmarried women could chase bachelors around town. In the story, if the women caught them, the men were obligated to marry them.
Student Council is working hard this year to make a great dance this year.
The dance is semi-formal with teachers as chaperones. Ticket prices are $17 for couples and $10 for singles. Tickets are $10 at the door.
