NHS decorated the dance with Hawaiian-themed decor like pineapples with leis and sunglasses.

Bright colors, tropical flowers, and fun-patterned shirts lined the halls of KHS on Friday, April 12.

The National Honor Society hosted the Daddy-Daughter dance for girls in kindergarten through the fifth grade.

The girls were invited to a Hawaiian-themed night where they could dance, sing, and spend time with the male role models in their lives.

Senior Emma Bishoff, co-president of NHS, said the event was a success.

“It went amazing. I think everything was smooth and ready to go an hour before the dance,” Bishoff said. “It was, overall, a huge success.”

NHS members anticipated the dance for weeks, spending the last month staying after school and making decorations, including tissue paper flowers, tiki heads, paper surfboards, and balloon pineapples.

Junior Makayla Nusbaum said the event went smoothly and guests had fun.

“I felt the Daddy-Daughter dance went really well,” Nusbaum said. “We had a strong turnout of dads and daughters, and everyone seemed to have a great time.”

The dance was a success for NHS. Everything went according to plan and the group worked together to create a fun and safe environment for the guests.

“NHS did really well. Everyone knew what they were doing and were super professional throughout the whole night,” Nusbaum said. “The setup and takedown went smoothly, and the night was one of the best Daddy-Daughter dances we’ve had.”

The event was one of the best in years, with members staying productive and getting everything ready before guests arrived.

Senior Madison Burroughs, NHS historian, said the preparation for the dance helped with the success of the event.

“I felt like the dance went very well. It ran a lot smoother than previous dances,” Burroughs said. “Last year we spent a lot more time setting up and tearing down. It was more efficient this year.”
