Winter Carnival Highlights Student Initiative and Talent

By Ben LaRoche, ’15

Edward Little’s 2015 Winter Carnival officially came to a close on Friday and many of the events were an overwhelming success, though there were a few hiccups along the way. The event was completely planned by students, and highlighted student art, musical skills and other talents.

The Art Walk was able to raise $245 for the New Beginnings Youth Homeless Shelter, all while entertaining the mass amount of students that were crammed into one hallway. The free day had a little something for everyone to enjoy, such as movies and games, and even if you didn’t want to do anything, you still had the option to simply kick back and unwind. The talent show gave the school a whole slew of amazing performances to watch and gave students the chance to show off what they can do.Some of the events however, needed a little work or could’ve been planned better. Many people complained of cheating during the students vs. staff dodgeball match, a large amount of the school’s populace (teachers included) didn’t have the slightest clue about what to do during the Uptown Funk dance, and the bonfire didn’t happen due to poor planning with fire safety and the muddy location.  “I think it could’ve gone better,” said junior Nate Hernandez.

The administration was happy with the event. Assistant Principal Jim Horn said “I thought it went great but it’s not my opinion that matters, it’s the students that does. It was their project after all, they were the ones who set it up.”

With a little more work, next year’s winter carnival has the potential to be just as good as Spirit Week, if not better.
