Valentine's Day at ACST

by Nicole Penaloza Manucci, Grade 7 student

This Valentine’s Day dance was incredibly fun! I feel like the food, drinks, music and decorations turned out better than I expected in the expected time we had to prepare it!

The dancing, the teacher co-helping in the food stands, the decorations and the tables were very entertaining! I think one thing that made Valentine's Day more entertaining was how there was more than one option, you could draw on the tables, play with balloons, dance on the stage, eat food, or take a break and sit down.

Some ways I would improve Valentine’s is by putting some more activities, and having a more open community for decorations, student ideas, and helping opportunities. Of course, with Covid-19 we have limited ways to make it so we can be together to help, but still it would be fun for next year to see more activities! I still really had fun dancing with my friends, and seeing other people have fun too! I think the slow dance was a very fun part of the Valentine’s Day dance simply because of the full romance theme, also because of how people had their take on it in different ways. I also quite enjoyed the limbo contest (watching it since I did not participate) I think it made us connect more and to create a more ‘party like environment’. Over all, I think considering the circumstances it turned out great and we also had a considerable amount of people attending too!
