The sounds of excited high school students seeped through Marian’s entry doors as students waited to enter the Welcome Dance on Sept. 18. Adorned with patriotic red, white, and blue decor, the school welcomed 408 Marian students, plus guests from other high schools, to celebrate the start of the 2015 school year.
Bass shook the ground as students pre-partied in the back of a pickup truck out front. Girls flashed peace signs for selfies in their flag-striped attire. DJ Hotboy tested his speaker and started his laser lights. Student Board members readied their BOSS point checklists. All was ready.
At 8 p.m., the front doors were opened and students flooded in. For the next three hours, dance guests cupid shuffled, cha cha slid, and dougie-ed up some fun memories.
“I had a really fun time dancing with all my friends and meeting people from other schools,” freshman Audrey Laney said.
