PROM PRIMER

By JENNY TODD

Prom is right around the corner and the students of IHS cannot wait for a fun and memorable night.

Prom has always been an IHS tradition. Students dress up in dresses or suits and spend a night with a date or friends. The great thing about prom is there is something for everyone. 

Prom is an event that takes place on April 30th at Chestnut Ridge. According to Mr. Michael Bertig, SGA Advisor, tickets will be “$80 per person”, and will go on sale “Monday, April 11 through Thursday, April 14.  No tickets will be sold after Thursday, April 14.”

The night of prom entails lots of fun activities. Student Government President Kennedi Kunkle gave a run down of the night saying, “The night begins with a grand march before students travel to Chestnut ridge where there will be a dinner and dancing for the remainder of the night. We are not planning on having an after prom this year. In 2019 the last time we had this event at the Chestnut Ridge the cost was $95 per couple; however, we are not sure how this could be adjusted this year. We will start selling tickets at the beginning of April in the trading post. With the current covid protocols being quite limited, we do not expect any issues to arise with prom unless circumstances change.”

After hearing how hopeful and enthusiastic Kennedi is about the dance I think students will have a good time. 

In past years it was always Juniors and Seniors were allowed to attend and if asked by a Junior or Senior the Sophomores could go. Although last year’s circumstances resulted in a Seniors only prom this year SGA has decided to continue the tradition of Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores if asked. This is exciting news because this will be the first prom for pretty much everyone at IHS.

SGA Vice President Maycie Lorelli also seemed to carry an upbeat attitude towards the dance by saying, “We’re hoping for a fun prom with the least amount covid restrictions possible! No matter what, it will be a fun and memorable night for all!” 

Students are a little nervous about attending big events like this because it is unexpected. In the past students have seen other grades attend these types of events but this is something new for everyone in the school except maybe the seniors who remember a little of their past high school experience. 

Prom is right around the corner so make sure to book you’re preparing for a great night that wraps up the year.

Leadership students addresses seasonal depression issues

By ELIA DIETZ For the month of November, IHS Leadership Seminar is focusing on uplifting students dealing with depression or other mental health issues. During academic advising, students made their own personalized hand turkey, writing what they’re grateful for on it.  Leadership provided paper and other crafting materials to academic advising teachers to hand out to their students. Students traced their hand on a piece of paper then cut and designed it however they wanted. On the hand turkey, students wrote what they are most grateful for this month. Hand turkeys are hung up outside of 10th period classrooms to be displayed in the hall.  Spanish teacher Mr. Henninger expresses, “I feel like you get your standard answers and you think, oh yeah, I didn’t even realize that I was thankful for that.” As the fall and winter seasons begin, the rate of students dealing with anxiety or depression heightens.

By EMMA SHEERAN Taylor Swift recently released her 10th studio album ‘Midnights’ and it took no more than a day for it to break streaming records and make history.
