On October 6 SCCS 9-12th graders met to celebrate the school’s annual Fall Festival.
SCCS’ Fall Festival is organized by the Student Leadership Council and serves as an opportunity for students to fellowship, play games and enjoy a meal together outside of the regular academic setting.
This year, the SCCS campus was transformed into a 1940’s carnival, complete with jugglers, caricature artists, old time photo sessions, and carnival booths. “It was a delightful event with every possible carnival food you could imagine,” recalls secondary faculty member, Janelle Sonnenburg. “The parent volunteers and SLC really worked hard to make it a nice event.”
Over one hundred twenty-five students showed up dressed in their 40’s attire ready for a night of thrills. “It was the best turnout SCCS has ever seen,” Janelle remarked.
Following a time of fellowship and carnival fun, the swinging of full skirts and the snapping of suspenders ignited the front turf into a flurry of excitement and laughter as the students gathered to learn the art of swing dancing. “It was a great way to kick off fall and spend time with friends,” commented sophomore Katelyn Wells.
There was a contest for best dessert and MacKenzie Voiles took home the award for best dessert with her apple confections, winning two tickets to the upcoming winter banquet in December.
The students had such a great time together and are looking forward to next year’s celebration.
