busy hanging decorations

for Winter Tolo. 

On December 8th 2018, Highline High School’s cafeteria doors opened up to the students for the last Winter Wonderland Tolo at our current building. It is fair to say that leadership worked tirelessly in the planning and promoting tolo.

According to my sources, about 140 tickets were sold, but only about 80 people actually showed up. The lack of people in the cafeteria definitely was noticeable. It definitely took a while for people to get on the dance floor. This seemed to be due to the DJ. Most of the songs seemed to be random, the playlist didn't seem to be just new music or old but a mix. Once people started dancing the party really kicked in. Our ASB officials were welcoming and invited people to the dance floor and overall made the atmosphere fun and engaging.

Latino club was selling horchata at Tolo. 

Clubs were able to provide a larger variety of products and refreshments than they usually do at homecoming and pep rallies because Tolo was indoors and being able to use electricity. Though the music and number of people could have been better, at the end of the day, you have as much fun as you make out of it. The effort that was put into decorations really showed and it was a great opportunity for clubs to raise money. In the future hopefully we can have more events like this.

The staff chaperones made sure that the students were safe and had a good time.
