Sadie Hawkins

A favorite activity each fall is the annual “Sadie Hawkins” event, which gives everyone an opportunity to dress in southern hillbilly garb and engage in scavenger hunting, turkey shoot, and the greased pig race. The evening includes a hillbilly meal, skits, and wraps up with cider ‘n smores around the campfire.

Valentine Banquet

The annual Valentine Banquet each February is a formal dinner and includes games and skits by students and their dates, music, and the evening’s highlight – the annual official Valentine Banquet video.
