[dropcap]M[/dropcap]May 31st 2018. Teachers and staff stood waiting to let students into the cafeteria for what would possibly be the best night of their lives. Students stood in line, in their fancy attire, chatting with friends and waiting eagerly for one of the biggest events of the school year. I’m talking about the South Carleton Oscars.

There was a photo booth where students could get their pictures taken. They had plenty of goofy accessories to choose from.  The food was from Cosmos Souvlaki and consisted of rice, salad and the souvlaki. Dessert was cookies of many different kinds.
