NDB community reflects on the postponement of Aquacades 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic
The Catalyst interviewed Kassie Cleland, junior, about what would have been Aquacades.
TC: Friday would have been Aquacades, but it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. What do you have to say about that?
KC: To be honest, I don’t care. At first, I thought it was okay since I am not really a spirited person, but I only cheer for our class to get points. I mainly just feel bad for the seniors because it’d be their last Aquacades and now they don’t get to do it. I feel bad for all the people that took time out of their day to prepare for their routines and now they don’t get to do them.
TC: If we come back to school before the end of the year, do you think Aquacades should be rescheduled or should it be canceled?
KC: I think it should be rescheduled because it is a really big deal at our school since it is an event that everyone looks forward to each year.
TC: If it’s rescheduled during the summer, would you be willing to come celebrate it then?
KC: I don’t know if I will be able to make it if it was during the summer because of schedule conflicts.
TC: People usually look at pictures or videos of last year’s Aquacades to learn what it’s about. One year from now, what do you want people to know about Aquacades?
KC: I want people to know that it is a really fun event to go with your friends, even though it is very competitive. I enjoyed seeing the teachers prepare routines because you can see they got moves.
