Last Saturday night, Campion Academy students decked themselves out in flannel for fun, films, and food at the annual Student Association (SA) Fall Party, held outside at the campus RV Park.
The party was centered around a short film festival. The school was able to watch both funny and serious videos prepared by the students that focused on the theme fall and rise. “Odalis and her team’s video was my favorite because it had a lot of meaning behind someone going through rough times, and Odalis was a really good actor,” said Lexi Davenport, freshman.
Students lined up for popcorn and cotton candy, a student favorite. SA members prepared games like corn hole, gunny sack races, whipped cream eating competition, and glow-in-the-dark tic-tac-toe. “The games were so much fun, and I liked getting candy for participating even though I didn’t win. Also, I had a five-minute winning streak in the whipped cream competition. It was so fun and yummy,” said Airi Nomura, junior.
The photo booth, a canopy strung with lights and fall decor, was popular as a way to commemorate the night with friends. Andy Obregon, senior, commented, “My favorite part of the party was the picture taking. Most of us seniors like to take our precious time with photos and the whole process of taking one, just ONE photo was the funniest part of that night.”
The last activity of the night was karaoke. Students took turns taking the stage to sing-along to their favorite songs. In what has become a Campion Fall Party tradition, seniors sang Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again.” Nelly Salinas, senior, said, “I was so happy our entire class sang together. But, it was also sad because I realized that this is my last year with these amazing people who have changed my life.”
