The royal couple was attended by seniors Lucas Kritzeck, Mickey Clark, Robby Sherk and Olivia Davis, juniors Matt Johanning and Maya DeShayes, sophomores Kaleb Weaver and Brooke Kritzeck, freshmen Travis Feather-Kaumans and Kennedy Campbell, and second-grade crown bearers Colt Weller and Emma Quinn.
Monday’s SnoDaze festivities also included a piano solo by Jillian Neubauer, a dress-up-days fashion show, a pep fest looking ahead to Thursday night’s basketball action, a broomball tournament, open gym, movies, games and homework help.
Toward the end of the week, the student body were to enjoy an encore performance of the school’s one-act play, “Chemical Imbalance,” and a semi-formal dance.
