Is your Macarena ready?

Our View

This Friday, Feb. 17, the high school will host a dance marathon in the gym from 7 p.m to 11 p.m. The event is sponsored by Student Senate, who has teamed up with West High School and UNI to raise money for the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital.

Tickets will be sold during lunch and after school in the lobby. They will be available for $10, and if bought with a dance marathon T-shirt, $15.

At the door, tickets will remain $10, but shirts will be sold for $10 separately. However, if pledges of $10 or more are raised, they will be free.

The dance marathon is for only CFHS students. Teachers can also pledge money, but some are also donating their time by chaperoning the different events.

The dance will take place on one side of the gym; on the other will be dodge ball games, 9-square and even a “casino” room. There will be a sign up sheet in the activities office for the different dodge ball teams, and there is a music request sheet in the counseling office.

“Because of the formal being canceled, I think people want something to do, and if enough people turn out, it’s going to be really fun,” junior Rachel Nurse said.

Very true, Rachel, very true. Only a large number of people could make this the absolute grooviest dance in this high school’s history. Go out and buy your ticket today, and remember: the fate of this event lies in your hands. It won’t be the same without you.
