Again this year (4th year), the Santaluces High School Chiefs hosted the Snowball Dance for special needs students from neighboring high schools. Noted for about 70 students attending from John I Leonard, Park Vista, Santaluces and Boynton Beach high schools. Members of the Santaluces Student Government Association (SGA) gave the gym a holiday feel including snowflakes, a Christmas tree, “Happy Hanukkah” signs and of course holiday music.

“The Snowball Dance is a great time for students with special needs to have something that is only theirs. They get to meet students from other schools and just enjoy being kids,” said Assistant Principal, Amanda Orndorff.

“It was a huge success, H-U-G-E,” said Ms. Monahan, SGA adviser. “We put a smile on their faces, and it helped them feel like everyone else.”

Students danced the day away and enjoyed food and beverages with the Santaluces Student Government students.

Larry Morales, a senior SGA student said, “Seeing the joy and watching the other students have so much fun, was worth all the hard work and effort we put in.”

President of SGA, Karina Fernandez said she had more fun dancing with the students than she did at the Homecoming Dance.

Some of the faculty members donned holiday attire, dressing up as Santa and his elf. Santa handed out candy canes and students danced and took pictures with Santa. They ate pizza, cookies, and lemonade, enjoying the spirit of the holidays.
