Winter Bash was a Blast

1/12/10 – 1/18/19

The Winter Bash brought eighth to twelfth grade students out to Belmont Academy Saturday night,  where they danced to DJ beats, played today’s best video games, ate gourmet deserts and had their photos taken in front of an amazing snowflake backdrop.

This was the first annual Winter Bash event at Belmont Academy.  It was sponsored by BACS Biz and was planned by the Belmont leadership students.

71 students attended the bash. The leadership students provided various activities including the Game Zone Game Truck, a DJ, ping pong tables, and "minute to win it" games. There was a variety of food and drink including Chick fil A, cake pops, appetizers and punch. 

“We organized the Winter Bash because it gave students in grades eight to twelve the opportunity to dress up and have a good time with friends outside of school,” said a leadership student.

Leadership teacher, Laura Lashley, played a large role in coordinating and carrying out the event. She was excited about the results and how everyone at Belmont Academy came together to make the Winter Bash a fun and exciting event.

"Our first Winter Bash was a huge success and I would like to say thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers who sent in food and chaperoned the event. I also want to give a huge thank you to Brandi Linton, the event decorator, Officer B. who worked security detail, Bailey's Mobile DJ Services, The Game Zone, our photographer, Mr. Rolerson, as well as my wonderful leadership students who helped plan and decorate the event," said Lashley.

The students loved the event. There was something for everyone.

"I enjoyed dancing with friends and winning the minute-to-win-it Kleenex challenge," said eighth grade student, Maggie Lowery.   

"I really enjoyed dressing up and spending a fun night with my friends. I look forward to attending the event next year," said eleventh grade student, Kallista Nickelson.
