A midnight to remember


Anna Baldwin, Opinions Editor

On Feb. 1, students were disappointed when the announcement came on to inform them that Midnight Madness had been cancelled due to dangerous weather conditions. Students didn’t remain disappointed long because the dance was rescheduled to Feb. 15.

Midnight Madness is similar to a rave and, although it has nothing to do with midnight, it is essentially a big dance party. Highlights of the night include senior Ryan Amir performing. Students can get their face painted with black light reflective paint, as well as get glow sticks and have a good time with friends.

Not only is Midnight Madness a fun, in-school activity, it also raises money for a good cause. “Everyone should go because 100 percent of profits of Midnight Madness go to American Heart Association, which means students can have fun and be spirited while helping a great cause,” junior SGA member Amy Kraft said.

SGA put in a lot of hard work toward this event and was hoping to see students there. “For $10, all of which goes to the American Heart Association, you do a good deed and in return, you get to socialize with friends, dance, and snap a few pictures with friends,” junior SGA member Gabi Giro said.

SGA puts on events like Midnight Madness because they understand students are stressed and they want to provide a fun night for them. “I was disappointed when I heard Midnight Madness was cancelled because last year, it was a lot of fun. SGA did a really nice job of decorating the lower gym and making it a fun night,” junior Sabrina Shah said.

Students who attended Midnight Madness either bought tickets for $10 in advance or at the door. “If you aren’t sure if you should go to Midnight Madness you should definitely go because last year it was a big success, everyone had fun and it’s a really fun event to spend time with your friends and support a good cause,” Giro said.
