Juniors Jueun Chon and Christina Horn are selling winter formal tickets during B lunch. Tickets are $20 and sold in all lunches and $30 at the door.

The student council will hold a winter formal from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Feb. 17 in the cafeteria. This will be the school’s first time in 10 years having three school dances in a school year.

“We made sure that we checked the date [this year for weather issues],” Student council sponsor Jennifer Russell. “Also Sadie [Hawkins] freaks people out for whatever reason, so instead of naming it [a] Sadie, we’re calling it a winter formal.”

Student council members were given a choice of a Sadie Hawkins dance or a winter formal. Winter formal won with over 80% of students voting for it. The winter formal will be similar to Homecoming, but will be a chance for underclassmen to attend a dance in the spring. 

“We don’t really have much to do in the spring and [other schools have] dances,” student council president Serai George said. “It’s good for us to be able to find certain things to do, like our community service projects, and so we thought a dance would be a good idea. ” 

Last year, the student council planned to have a Sadie Hawkins dance, but due to the winter storm, the dance was canceled after the supplies were not able to reach the school in time. 

“Last year for Sadie Hawkins, I really wanted to ask somebody but I didn’t really have a boy to ask,” junior Victoria Gomez said. “I’m really excited that they decided to change it up this year for winter formal, and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Homecoming costs about $2,500 to hold each year, and this dance is predicted to be around the same, if not lower. Russell said she has been trying to plan a third dance at the school for the last four years, but when she was finally given approval, COVID-19 restrictions did not allow her from doing so. 

“I’m [originally] from Katy, Texas, and I [came to Hebron] 10 years ago,” Russell said. “We [did] things there all the time and, so I was like, ‘why don’t we have a Sadie Hawkins [dance]? Why don’t we have a spring dance?’ I’ve been asking questions for a long time, and [principal Amy Boughton] finally said yes, then [COVID-19] happened. So, it’s only taken four years and a whole entire graduating class to pass by for us to get back to where we were.”

The club plans to hold dress-up days and hang posters around the school in preparation for the dance. The tickets for the winter formal are $20 while homecoming was $30. 

“My goal is just to provide [the] campus with another opportunity to do something,” Russell said. “We have a long list of things that you could do throughout the year. I want to give you one more thing; like if you missed out on Homecoming and saw how fun it was, you can attend the winter formal [instead].”
