Campfire smoke hangs in the air and used sparklers lay voided on the blacktop as smore-filled, fun-had students climb in their cars to head home for the night.

Last Friday, September 15, was KCC High School Student Council’s fall event. The theme, “Party in the USA”, revealed itself through the red, white and blue streamers hanging in the high school hallway, patriotic garb donned by the attending students, and tie-dye balloons strewn across the gym floor. Student Council does a fall event every year, but this year was special.

“It was one of the best ones I’ve been to,” Junior Jacob Swanson said.

The evening started off with students trickling into the school around 7 o’clock, and congressing in the gym, where spike balls and volleyballs laid waiting to be used.

“There was music playing and there were banners everywhere and it looked very inviting for sure,” freshman Grace Lague said.

Once Student Council co-presidents Ian Ko and Jessica Steggerda felt like it was time to start, the festivities kicked off with a pie eating contest, but instead of eating the pie, the students had to find objects hidden in it. After the contest, students dispersed either go to the Mario Kart room, the board game room, the mafia room, or to the basement to play murderer in the dark. Each student could go with their friends to whichever room they wanted.

“I got to lead the mafia game because I’m on Stuco, and it was really fun because I play a different version of mafia than most people, and everyone really liked the extra characters I have because there really funny,”senior Abby Swafford said.  

One of the night’s goals was to draw in students by providing opportunities for everyone to find a place they enjoy.

“I felt like it went really well. I felt like it was great way to let everybody do what they want. Everyone got variety and it was good,” Math teacher and Student Council sponsor Kelsey Moore said.

Around 8:30, it was announced that s’mores were outside and students made a mad dash for the blacktop by the playground, where fire pits were set up. As students milled around munching on s’mores, Student Council members brought out sparklers. The excitement of the night was made tangible by the small fireworks created by the sparklers.
