The annual junior high Morp is coming up on Friday, May 6, from 7-10 p.m. Morp is a dance for the seventh and eighth graders to celebrate the end of the year. The event is held each year in the cafeteria. Morp is sponsored by the Junior High Student Council.
“I can’t wait to see how our decorations will look,” said Junior High Student Council Sponsor Tammy Noble. This is Noble’s 18th Morp event.
This year’s event theme is Hollywood. Decorations will include balloons, mock awards and lots of red, black and gold.
The Student Council is led by two presidents, eighth graders Jaxton Deaton and Kylie Flannery.
“(Noble) had us write down our ideas for themes and we voted on the top three choices,” said Flannery.
One of the students involved in planning the decorations is eighth grade Student Council Member Madi Collier.
“Well, the main design is pretty simple. Red, gold and black balloons. We have little stars and a red carpet too. Right now our main concern is the big Hollywood sign we’re putting together,” said Collier.
Decorating will be done the day of Morp but some work has already begun.
Tickets will be available for purchase two weeks before the dance. This year, the Morp tickets are $8 per student.
