The Snow Ball dance will be in the Harmon cafeteria this Saturday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Students can purchase tickets for $20 in the cafeteria during both block lunches or at the front office before or after school.

“I think our students deserve to have opportunities where they can do social activities that bring us together as a campus,” Harmon principal Joi Cartmill said. “I’m hoping for a connection with our students and for our students to feel connected to Harmon and remember it was a special place.”

Tickets first went on sale on Nov. 8 and were sold for $15 through Nov. 12 during the flash sale. Since then, tickets have gone up to $20 and will be $25 at the gate. The funds from the ticket sales will go back to the school and be used to fund opportunities for Harmon staff and students. 

“Planning the dance has been a little stressful, only because we have to get the ticket sales up,” Harmon assistant principal Phillip Humpheries said. “We want to provide the best experience for the students, and so in doing that it’s a lot of crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s.”

In the lower section of the cafeteria, there will be an area for dancing where the DJ will be set up. In the upper level, there will be seating and refreshments where the students will be served a pasta dinner. The DJ at the Snow Ball will be the same one who performed at the homecoming dance in September.

“I wanted to go to the dance to have a great time and make some memories with others,” sophomore Joshua Bertoa said. “I hope there will be lots of people dancing. I don’t want people to just be standing in the corner.”

The school staff started planning the dance in the summer and plans to have another less formal dance in the spring for Harmon students.

“I think it’s really important for people to have an opportunity to have memories in school,” Cartmill said. “Everything is not academics; we know academics are the most important thing you do at school, but it’s also important to have memories.”
