When it comes to events at Fillmore Central High School, three stand out above the rest: Homecoming, Prom, and Sno Daze. During the week of January 26-30 Fillmore Central students celebrated Sno Daze. This is a week in the middle of the year when the student body raises money for St. Judes, Students Against Destructive Decisons, and even has a dodgeball tournament.
Hosted by Students Against Destructive Decisions and the National Honor Society, Sno Daze is always a fun week.
The week started on Monday with Relationship Day. If you are "unattached" you wear orange and if you're "spoken for" you wear red meaning "stay away".
Dodgeball and the
The annual Dodgeball tournement also started on Monday.
Ten dollars donated to St. Jude's Children's Hospital bought you and your five-man team into a highly competitve tournament. Another fundraiser was called "tape to the wall". A student from each grade is selected to raise money. People then give money for the person they would like to see get taped up on the gym wall. This year was the Ginger Challenge. All contestants are red-heads.
There is so much more going during Sno Daze, including royalty. This year our queen contestants were Katie Treat, Becca Lokker, Jayme Ostern, Tricia Harstad, and our winner Courtney Scheevel. King candidates included, Aaron Adams, Dalton Woellert, Jonathon Cremer, and our winner Matt Gatzke. In addition to king and queen, we also had a prince and princess. Princess candidates were Becca Bakke, Tiffany Johnson, Jesse Tammel, Alex Peterson, and our princess was Autumn Moe. Prince contestants were Matt Daskam, Darrin Hill, Luke Bergey, Dylan McCabe and our prince Tony Ademek.
Congratulations to our winners. There was a Grand March for the royalty on Friday at the boys basketball game and at the Sno Daze school dance.
