Lost under the lights. Class of 2026 and the eighth graders enjoy their night at the step up dance on May 31 in the PIHS cafeteria.

On Friday, May 31 the freshmen and incoming Class of 2028 had their annual step up dance. It lasted from 7-10 PM in the Presque Isle High School cafeteria. The dress code was “Sunday best.” This dance was only available to members from those specific grades.

There was a band there which consisted of our own freshmen and one junior. Emma and Paige Cormier ’27, Mason Ireland ’27, Zoe Gamblin ’27 and Brad Pelletier ’25 performed.

They played nine songs throughout the night. They practiced every Tuesday and Thursday night from 4 to 6 pm for a few weeks before the dance. “It felt exciting, but also very nerve wracking,” Emma Cormier ’27 said.

So what was it like to be the only junior in this group? “You start thinking you aren’t gonna know anybody but it’s nice that you have the chance to perform,” Pelletier ’25 said.
