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!
