“We came up with the Back to School Dance because it is early in the school year, and we want to boost school spirit. [It’s] a great way for peers to interact in a safe, and secure environment,” said Karah Hitchcock-Carter, NTHS’s Parent Teacher Student Association, PTSA, president.
On September 30th, NTHS’s PTSA will host the school’s first Back to School Dance.
“We want to boost school spirit. Also, most high schools hold dances and because NTHS is new, it is hard to continue yearly traditions,” said Ms. Hitchcock-Carter. “The students can look forward to a good time with good music, a reasonable ticket price, and good fun!”
Yet, with a SAT test and a major football game against Randallstown scheduled on the Saturday after the dance, many upper classmen say they may not be able to attend the event. The dance date
was originally scheduled to occur earlier in September. “We changed the original date to September 30th to accommodate all students. The original date for the dance would have been the same night as an away game for the football team,” she said.
Funds raised from this event will benefit the school and each class. “We want to make sure each class is represented, and we will deposit the funds accordingly. If 25% of the senior class participates, they will receive the appropriate amount of the money raised,” said Ms. Hitchcock-Carter.
DJ Kali from Takeover Entertainment will entertain the crowd. “He will be playing … music that the young people like,” she said. “Free juice and water are included with the price of the ticket.”
The tickets are $7 in advance and $12 at the door. The dress is casual but classy. “A Back to School Dance every year will depend on the response from the students,” said Ms. Hitchcock-Carter.
