This year’s winter formal will be held on February 10th from 7 to 11 p.m. in the East campus gym.

The dress code reflects the basic school dress code, with the additional or emphasized restrictions on: no bare midriffs (including sheer fabric), excessive cleavage, or slits past mid-thigh. Dress length must also be in school dress code meaning the length must be no shorter than mid-thigh. Regardless of the fact that evening-wear often exposes more than day-wear, there still must be no visible tattoos. Though hats with the logos of any sports team are still restricted, dress hats are allowed.

At the door, students must have their current student ID or will be denied entry.

The theme for this year’s formal dance will be A Tale as Old as Time. Upon being asked, students expressed a desire for a theme that would focus more on blues and golds as opposed to the past formal color scheme of black and silver, and so student leadership made the adjustments. This was something that would require very different decorations, but it will still be elegant and beautiful,” says Shawna Sousa, activities director at Central East High School.

Tickets will be on sale starting January 29th to February 2nd: $45 for couples and $30 for singles. Starting February 5th, if you haven’t purchased your tickets yet, the price will be raised to $55 per couple and $40 for singles.

Students must have a GPA of 2.0, be clear of all fines and not appear on the non-privilege list in order to attend. To find out if you are clear to attend formal, you must get a dance pass and submit it to your designated university. If it is signed, you are clear to attend. If you are bringing a guest from another school you will need to get a dance slip from Ms. Sousa in the office and get it signed and turned in to her prior purchasing tickets. Keep in mind, visitor passes for students from other high schools must also be signed off by their school administration, so starting the process sooner as opposed to later is advised.

Tickets can be purchased at the East or West finance office.
