Hotchkiss High School celebrated Winterfest last week. On Feb. 6, students dressed for the Olympics, either winter or summer. From left to right are Tyrell Clock, Becca Pachl, Caleb Schelle, Alex Smith and Kelly Suppes. Hotchkiss High School holds a Winterfest every year culminating with a dance on Saturday night. “It’s fun to get everyone together just after Christmas break. [The dance] is different because instead of the guys asking the girls, the girls ask the guys,” Becca Pachl said. In selecting the Olympic theme, the students figured “everyone was watching” the Olympics anyway and it would be easy to dress in Olympic-style.
