The annual Winter Semi-Formal is coming up this month on February 9th. However, the dance this year is going to be much different from others. Typically any and all Powell dances are away from campus, but this one is happening right here at home. The Winter Semi-Formal will be taking place in the lobby at 6:00pm. It will be cute, cozy, and unique! You can expect lots of red and pink Valentine’s Day themed decor, good food, fun, and great music. All classes are invited to come to the winter semi-formal, and tickets are very affordable compared to other school dances. Single tickets are $15 and couple tickets are $25. Tickets can be purchased in room 110, from Mrs.Kennedy, or in room 305, from Mrs. Pasillas. Tickets must be bought before February 6th. Also, like prom, all guests who are not students at Powell High School and plan to attend the semi-formal must fill out a guest application form.
Don’t have a date? Don’t worry! Although the decor will be Valentine’s Day themed, that doesn’t mean you have to bring your valentine. Bring a friend, a group of friends, or just bring yourself. No matter who you’re with, you’re bound to have a good time. Don’t know what to wear? It is semi-formal, so no need to go out and buy an expensive dress or rent a tux. Instead, simply go to your closet and pick out your favorite skirt, dress pants, dress, button up shirt, tie, or bow tie, and you’re set! There’s no excuse not to come out and have fun. I hope to see you all there!
