Family and friends gathered Jan. 31st at the First Christian Church in Kent.

Luau plans in place of canceled Winter Formal

The 2015 Winter Formal is going to be replaced by a Beach Luau.

The Beach Luau will be held in the high school gym and commons on Feb. 7, 2015 from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Drama Club will supply the music.

Upon arrival, students will receive a lei. There will be beach balls, beach decor and even a hula dancer. There will be a ton of activities for everyone.

Tickets will be sold for $5 the week before the dance and at the doors.

The proper attire will be nice pants and a button up shirt for boys and a sundress for the girls.

Crop tops, bathing suits and spandex are not permitted and if worn, one will be asked to leave.

Student council members believe this will be a nice replacement for Winter Formal.
