On Thursday, February tenth students gathered to celebrate Valentine’s Day by holding a best dress dance. The dance started at 7pm and ended at 9pm, and it was held in the boys' gym.

One of the newest things about the Valentines Dance was that students could use a photo both to take pictures with friends and keep them.  “The photo both was way cool because it was just like the ones at malls,” said Bailey Davis, eighth grader at SJHS.

Students were given the opportunity to buy Val-e-grams at the dance. Val-e-grams are Valentines. Val-e-grams included flowers or candy.

Plenty of students, teachers, and faculty members showed up to the dance to chaperone or to just have fun and dance.  Some of the dances that where played at the dance were the Electric Slide and the Boot Scootin Boogey.   

“I really liked going to the dance and it helped that my sweetheart came with me,” said Mrs. Mary Rice, an English teacher at SJHS, “but make no mistake; the teachers who are there are there to protect the students and to actively and aggressively socialize them.”
