Saturday, October 22, 2016, the New Hope High School Student Council hosted the school’s annual homecoming dance. In the years past, the dance has taken place after the football game on homecoming night. However, the Student Council decided this year to move the dance to the Saturday night after the Homecoming game.

“We decided to change it to Saturday because we though more people would come that way,” Katy Soule, the vice president of Student Council and one the head-organizers of this year’s dance, stated, referencing to the futile attendance of the past years’ dances.

“We also decided to make it semi-formal because several schools in the are had done that, and we all thought it was a way to make people take it more seriously,” Soule added

The Student Council themed the dance “Masquerade” and decorated the New Hope High Commons Area with red, white and black decorations, including giant masks, made by Mrs. Acosta’s art classes, streamers, lights, a table at which masks could be bought for a small fee, and a giant photo booth backdrop where students who attended could take social media worthy pictures of their fun experience at the school function.

“We were throwing around different theme ideas when someone said ‘What about a masquerade?’ and it automatically seemed like a very classic and elegant theme that would go well with the semi-formal we were wanted to do,” Soule shared.

This is the Student Council’s first year hosting the dance, and they changed a lot of things around with complete student satisfaction in mind.  From changing the date, dress-theme, time, arrangement, venue, and over-all atmosphere, they did their best to give the annual operation a new sense of life, and it seems to have worked. This year, more New Hope students attended the dance than the previous two years combined.

“We decided to host the dance as a way to get the school to come together and have a good time,” Soule explained.
