Verbum Dei’s Annual Back to School Dance brought in a record number of students to the Multi-Purpose Room on September 16. Students must have had no problem spreading the word about this event as Verbum Dei collected over $2,000 in entrance fees.
Students were surprised to note that most attendees came from schools outside of our local community, but local schools showed their support as well. As a result, the dance allowed for various cultures to come together for a night to socialize, to dance, and just to have all around fun. Throwing glow jewelry about the MPR, DJ Atomic turned out to be a pretty good success as he scratched a handful of different music for students and guests to enjoy. Lighting effects and a smoke generator contributed to the party atmosphere.
Verb’s Homecoming Dance is slated for Saturday, October 22.
