Pairing Can Drive and Fall Dance=Huge Success!

The canned food drive was a huge success this year. Pairing it with the dance not only helped us create an excitement for the Fall Costume Dance, but also helped us raise more cans than we have in recent years. Between the classroom competitions and the cans we collected at lunch that students used to buy their dance tickets, we donated 2,712 cans to the Scott County Clearinghouse. As successful as the canned food drive was, the dance was just as great. Many students enjoyed the music provided by Young Guns DJ, Hunter Hostetler, a student at SHS who did a great job. The costumes were fantastic as always, but there were a few costumes that wowed the students. Jonathon Bacon (10), dressed as a taco, won best individual costume and Mitchell Meagher (12) and Alexa Howser (12) won best couple costume, dressed as Sully and Boo from Monsters Inc. Both the canned food drive and the Fall Costume Dance put on by the Student Council were huge successes and we hope to continue to have more events with great student participation throughout the year.
