Spring Dance Celebrates March Madness

The March Madness Dancewill be held in the gymnasium on March 25.

The spring event was added to the calendar by Leadership after the Welcome Back Dance was canceled due to a broken water main at the beginning of the school year.

March Madness is a term generally associated with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) basketball tournament. Leadership is encouraging students to wear their favorite college team jerseys to the dance.

“Normally the boys wear jerseys anyway, so we thought that would be good and we thought we could have girls wear them too and it’ll be fun. You can wear what team you support or, I don’t know, anything you want,” said Senior Leadership student Beth Evenhuis.

For what would seem to be obvious reasons, the spring dance could not be a “welcome back” event. “What would we be welcoming them back from? Thursday, maybe,” mused Leadership advisor Dino Petrocco.
