School revives homecoming dance nixed over cost
Last Updated: 62 days ago
CROWN POINT, Ind. - High school students whose homecoming dance was canceled over concerns about cost will get their moment in the spotlight after all.
Crown Point High School officials canceled the dance last week after some parents said the event with its $40-per-person ticket price was becoming too expensive. School officials instead suggested an informal dance, but few students bought tickets and the event was scrapped.
The Times reports (http://bit.ly/GMWDaA ) a formal homecoming dance has been rescheduled for Saturday at White Hawk Country Club. The dance will cost $20 per student. Its sponsors want to remain anonymous.
Senior Sophie Reiners says many of her classmates have waited years for the homecoming dance and were disappointed that the original event was canceled. She plans to attend this weekend's dance.
