“I hope it turns out great and exciting as always,” Senior Class President John Lee said. “I expect that everyone will come to dance because what really makes a dance fun are friends.”

This year, the dance is American-themed and is called “Star Spangled Sadies.” It will be a casual dance and students are encouraged to dress up in the colors of the United States flag. The DJ from this year’s homecoming is planned to DJ this dance.

“I’m excited to have the DJ back,” junior Lillian Zhou said. “He did an exceptional job at the Homecoming dance and good music is an integral part of a fun dance.”

Teen Job Fair planned
The Teen Job Fair is happening on Wednesday, March 13 in the school cafeteria after 6th period.

Students will have the chance to talk to local employers and volunteer organizations in order to organize summer jobs and volunteer activities. The event is being arranged by College/Career Center Coordinator Kristen Joseph, the Los Altos Recreational Department, the Mountain View Recreational Department and NOVA, a student employment organization.

While the employment organizations will be looking mainly for students that are 16 and above, freshmen and sophomores are encouraged to come to search for volunteer opportunities.

“Although [freshmen] won’t have many opportunities to find summer jobs, they will be able to find volunteer activities to help their resume and future work experience.” Joseph said.
