Chiefs Chill Out at the AP and AICE BBQ

The recent polar vortex that hit the United States may have had most frozen in their tracks, but that didn’t stop students from attending the fifth annual AP/AICE Barbecue.

Around 500 students attended the chilly event, shaking off the cold by dancing to music played by a DJ and playing games such as musical chairs, catch, and board games.

“The AP Barbecue was sweet,” said junior Grace Aleman. “It might have been a chilly day but we were able to come together and warm ourselves with dancing.”

Unlike last year, when the Culinary Academy provided the food, the Boynton Diner catered this year. Barbecue favorites such as hamburgers and hotdogs were served along with a variety of snacks including chips, candy, and cookies. Spinach wraps were also provided for vegetarians.

Other activities included a photo booth sponsored by the National Art Honor Society, egg races, and more dancing.

“The barbecue was a great success,” said AP Human Geography teacher, Mrs. Sunset. “The kids looked like they were having a great time dancing; the DJ was a great addition.”
