Students anticipate NOTS, movies create good times (VIDEO)

Spotlights on the ceiling, carpets rolled out, everyone dressed up in their fanciest atire. These are some of the many ways schools across the nation enjoy celebrating formals. FC is going to celebrate their annual Night of the Stars (NOTS) with the theme being ‘A Red Carpet Affair,’ Feb. 16. NOTS is an event where students can participate in a white collar evening of fine dining and movies.

While NOTS is FC’s equivant of a prom, it does have a unique twist. During NOTS, instead of dancing, students each create a class movie. Each grade is allowed to choose what movie they want to do, and then are given a time frame based on their class year. They then film the movie, and it is debuted at NOTS.

Eighth grader Damian Boyce looks forward to going to NOTS next year. Expecting a good time Boyce wants to take a date with him to add to the excitement of the night.

“I look forward to participating in NOTS next year,” Boyce said. “I’m planning on going. I’ll probably ask someone too so I don’t have to go alone.”

Although Timothy Nyberg, ’16, is excited to view the movies that will be shown, he wishes the school would allow dancing. Seeing nothing wrong with the activity, Nyberg believes dancing should be added to the night.

“I think NOTS is a fun event for the students,” Nyberg said. “I think the movies are fun but I really wish there were dancing. I don’t think there is anything wrong with dancing as long as students don’t get out of control, which I don’t think they would.”

Whether or not the school should participate in dances, NOTS has always been a fun time for students. Many students enjoy different aspects that the night offers. Some students enjoy the food, whereas others prefer the movies. Olivia Quebe, ’16, looks forward to hanging out with friends most, throughout out the course of the night.

“NOTS appeals to me because I look forward to hanging out with my friends,” Quebe said. “I think it’s a great way not to make it awkward by just going with friends. It avoids the hassle and worry of the night being a date and lets you just relax and have a good time.”

In the past NOTS has had many themes. From ‘A Night in Paris,’ Roaring ’20s’ and even themes such as ‘Underwater,” it has attracted students for many years. The student leadership class chooses the theme of NOTS and Kim Bimat, assistant leadership advisor, thinks this years theme will be great.

“American glamour is often defined by Hollywood moments,” Bimat said. “I find our NOTS theme fitting because it is a glamourous event like many in Tinsel Town. The theme, Lights Camera, Action, is also fitting because at FC we have the opportunity to make class movies. So what better a theme for NOTS than a glamourous Hollywood Night out?”

NOTS tickets are currently on sale for $50. This price has not changed in many years. Leadership tries to break even with the money spent and earned on this activity. In the last 10 years, leadership has not made more than $20 total in a year. Throughout its many years as the campus’s formal, NOTS has never lost its flair among the students.
