Sadie’s officially cancelled, formal dances stay

April 3, 2008 — by Brian Kim

Administrators have canceled this year’s Sadie Hawkins Dance — the traditional culmination of Spring Fling week — because of the drinking that occurred at the holiday dance in December. Despite the cancellation of Sadie’s, three formal dances, Winter Ball, Junior Prom and Senior Prom, remain on schedule.

“We felt like we had to cancel Sadie’s after what happened at the last dance,” said principal Jeff Anderson. “In addition to the fact that there were a few students that were visibly intoxicated, we found pint-sized bottles of alcohol that had evidently been snuck in prior to the dance.”

Because of drinking at other dances, especially informal dances, school officials specifically warned students not to drink at the Dec. 14 dance.
