Spring Formal 2017
On a not-so-typical Saturday night in late April, all the Grade 11s and 12s were invited to Brentwood's first ever spring formal. While the girls got dolled up by doing their hair, powdering their noses, and painting their nails, the boys put on their crisp suits and gelled their hair.
The clock clicked from 7:59pm to 8:00pm and the girls rushed downstairs in their houses and patiently tapped their heels waiting for their dates to pick them up. The boys showed up with flowers in one hand (and, for some, a stylish walking cane in the other).
After pictures on the walkway, we were welcomed to cocktail hour, also know as ‘mocktail’ hour. As we sipped dark purple and light yellow slushies as well as lemon water, the elevator music played in the background and the well dressed seniors socialized for a bit.
After mocktail hour came to an end, some of Brentwood's students DJ’d the dance. During this terrific night for the senior students, the juniors were given the opportunity to watch a movie. Given the success of this inaugural Brentwood spring formal, the current grade 10s surely have something to look forward to next year.
Thanks to all of the volunteers, staff and students, who made this great evening possible.
