With prom season over, Attleboro High School’s (AHS) underclassmen finally have a chance to dance. The freshman social is planned for Friday, June 12.
Tickets will be sold in the Student Activities Office during all four lunches on Monday, June 8 through Friday, June 12 for $10.
Students from other grades and other schools will not be allowed to come. This dance is open to AHS freshman only by school policy. “Bringing in other students who are unfamiliar to us is more of a responsibility. If we don’t know anything about them then we don’t know if they’ll cause problems so it’s just to stay safe,” said AHS Assistant Principal Mrs. Jean Hickox.
There is no specific theme to this dance. “It’s more of an end of the year celebration and it’s just to be social,” said Co-Freshman Class Advisor Mrs. Laura Niedbala.
The social will be held in B1 cafeteria from 7 to 10 p.m. as it’s been in the past. The planning process has taken about two months with the help of class council members.
Drinks and snacks like chips and candy will be available for purchase. The chaperons are yet to be determined.
“The planning is fun. We get together and make things happen, which is a great way to get involved with the school,” said AHS freshman class council member Brain Ulbrich.
“I went to Macy’s and bought a new shirt; I hope the ladies like it,” said AHS freshman Chris Beard.
“I would call this event ‘smasual,’ semi-casual, meaning girls should wear nice summer dresses and boys can wear button down shirts or polos. Of course, it has to be school appropriate,” said Niedbala.
“If students want to be part of the planning process for the social, our class council meets on Thursdays in room 113A. We welcome and encourage students to come join us,” said Co-Freshman Class Advisor Mrs. Christine Moniz.
“It’s the best way to end the year,” she said.
