STUDENT ACTIVITIES: Sadie Hawkins Dance "Radiance"

Hey Huskies! On February 6th, Fairmont Prep hosted its annual Sadie Hawkins dance. This year, the dance was called Radiance, and the sophomore class put together an evening of fun and excitement. We had an eye-catching, glow-in-the-dark theme with a graffiti wall, which was a big hit, a photo booth, great dj, a glow station for everyone to deck themselves out in colors, and much more. What was most impressive were the outfits people came sporting to the dance! Colorful was an understatement for everyone's attire. To match the theme, many students sported bright, vibrant neon colors or dressed in all white to reflect the black-lights. All night students danced to the music with LED glow sticks which “radiated” the gym. Shout out to all the sophomores who put together such an amazing night!

STUDENT ACTIVITIES: 2015 Travel Week



This January 4th to the 11th, a group of Fairmont students had the opportunity to travel all the way to Italy and explore Rome, the Eternal City. They visited many famous landmarks from the Coliseum to the Pantheon, as well as experiencing authentic Italian culture. Pasta and pizza were common and there were gelato stores around almost every corner. “It was one of the most beautiful trips I have ever been on,” said Fara Chang, a freshman. Everyone including Mrs. Kunkle and Mr. Dunn, who chaperoned the trip, had a great time, and we hope to see you out there next year!

HUSKY VISION: Season 9

 
This year Husky Vision season 9 is off to a great start! So far we have had 3 episodes this season and they have recieved great reviews from the audience. This year’s class has 18 people in it and Mr. Ochoa said, “This years class is one of the most productive and creative classes that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. This class has a lot of ideas and it is very nice to see development in the students that I’ve had for 3 years.” Some of the popular segments this year include Pun Timez, Top Dawg, and Unexpectedness. Pun Timez is a new segment this year led by Bryan Dang and Sartaj Panesar, who create puns revolving around the upcoming events at Fairmont. It has gotten very positive feedback from viewers and classmate Adam Berelowitz said, “Pun Timez is a very witty segment that breaks up serious topics in Husky Vision and lightens the mood.”  This year Top Dawg is ran by Samantha Clement, the first female lead in Husky Vision history. Top Dawg is a segment that informs the audience about upcoming events on and around campus. The next episode is January 23rd and the Husky Vision team is already hard at work preparing for it!
