This Friday, Mar. 18, the first dance at AWHS since the 2019 Winter Formal will be held. The “Spring Fling” will take place on the baseball field from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Entry is free to all students as a result of funding from the Falcon Foundation.

The dance is spring-themed, which includes floral prints and vibrant colors.

“The theme is to show up in your semi-formal Spring attire. There will be a DJ, live music, silent disco, games, food trucks, and more,” said a ParentSquare announcement sent out by Jolie Jacobs Wednesday, Mar. 10., which referred to the dance as a “Semi-Floral.”

The Spring Fling, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be many underclassmen’s first high school dance.

“I am looking forward to the Spring Fling because I’ve never been to a silent disco before, and am excited to try it out! I’m also excited because I heard there will be lots of food trucks, and I really want to try the food,” said AWHS freshman Julia Conrad.

To lead-up to the dance, from Mar. 13 through Mar. 18, there will be a dress up Spirit Week, with Monday as PJ Day, and Tuesday as Jersey Day. For Women’s Wednesday, students will wear purple, and Thursday will be Green Out to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Lastly, Friday will be Floral Friday, an add-on to the dance that will take place later that evening. 

“I am super excited for our frosh and sophomores to finally have a semi-formal. I hope to have a great turnout and a collective positive experience,” said AWHS senior and ASB president Margaret Young.

With the dance taking place outdoors, wearing a mask will not be required.
