Senior Class Council leads community events

After putting on the first outside homecoming dance in Naperville Central history, Senior Class Council is hard at work planning more events this coming school year.

The main event they are planning is the winter formal dance, which will be held in a different format than in past years, along with a tentative change in date.

“Having [the Winter Formal] be in March, as opposed to February when it usually is, because it’ll be a little bit warmer outside and mask restrictions may still be in place,” said Senior Class Council President Anusha Kumar. “You will definitely have to have a dance outside.”

Further changes to the winter formal are fueled by the desire to invite a larger audience.

“[The winter formal] is in February usually, so it’s right around Valentine’s Day,” said Jeromy Bentley, Senior Class Council co-sponsor. “But you don’t want to make it just like a couple’s dance. We want to try to change that perception a little bit more.” 

Aside from dances, Senior Class Council likes to focus on community service opportunities and is currently in the process of organizing a toy drive.

“We are also planning a toy drive,” Kumar said. “We will be donating $1,000 worth of toys to low-income children through the Kids Matter organization.”
