Our Shortcoming on Homecoming: HSPVA's Winter Ball
When you get a bunch of artists together and put us in a school that is the focal point for our craft, we seem to mourn some normalcy of typical high school celebrations. We don't have any organized sport unless you want to count some kids getting together to form a soccer club. Still, in the spirit of getting a celebration together, a dance that is not centered around a football game, HSPVA students have to get creative in how we show school spirit. A big part of our student government is getting to head a committee that hosts a spirit week and a winter ball that we put on every January.
Our 2020 theme, the Roaring 20s, was such a success considering we are starting a new decade. Kudos to the officers for their dedicated work in putting on such a fantastic formal event.
Ámbar Caldwell said, "I am thrilled that we have a dance where we can hang out with our friends, sometimes I feel like we have to sacrifice ordinary high school functions because we want to pursue our musical, art, or dance to a higher aptitude." Setting a financial budget and sticking to it is essential, where to delegate money and to know when to say no. Getting your theme together and coordinating what decorations will help set the mood. Delegating this falls into life lessons for such a sizable event.
Student government gives us several opportunities to learn life lessons. We are always looking for motivated go-getters who want to make life happen and coordinate events that will better our school as a community. We are still on the lookout for new talent. If this is something you may want to consider doing in the future, consider applying for the next school year.
