Chance to Dance

STUCO’s Valentine’s themed dance will be hosted on Feb 15.

   The Student Council (STUCO) has planned Courtwarming to take place on Thursday, Feb 15 in Cokely gym. Significant changes to the dance have been made to gain popularity from the student body. 

   A spirit week the week before Courtwarming will be celebrated Feb 12-16 so students should stay up to date @liberty.stuco on Instagram for more information. 

   “We are trying to make it a bit more formal than in past years. The dress code is more semi formal,” senior in Practical Leadership Tilyn Hodgkin said “It’s not as formal as homecoming or prom, but it’s also not as casual as jeans.”

   In the past years, Courtwarming has taken on a casual theme such as jeans and t-shirts, but they are striving to change that this year. The theme Be Mine Bluejay was picked in hopes to make it unique from previous years. The dance is also unique in that it is the first year the court won’t be announced at the game, the dance falls on a Thursday night, and will be more formal. 

   “The sophomore class was in charge of picking the theme, and they wanted to do something kind of like Valentine’s Day, since it does fall on the week of Valentines,” Practical Leadership teacher and STUCO Director Kara Geisert said. 

   The basketball team will play Park Hill South before the dance and the theme for that game will be Blue Out. There are significant changes taking place this year in regards to the court and will be a major adaptation from past years. Changes to the game will be that they are no longer announcing the King and Queen at the game and it will take place the same night as the dance on Thursday. 

   “This year we will be announcing the court at the dance itself and not at the game, so more people are in attendance,” Geisert said.

   The court is seniors only and is picked by teacher nominations unlike Homecoming which is picked by the student body. The candidates are narrowed down to a final King and Queen which will then be announced at the Courtwarming dance. 

   Tickets will be $10 and can be bought either at lunch or @lps53.org/lhs when they are released.
