On Jan. 7, students boarded a boat that sailed around the bay and under the bridges of San Francisco for Pinewood’s annual winter formal. One great part about formal was that no matter how somebody got ready before the dance or what they wore, all the students were supportive of one another. Together, they screamed at the top of their lungs and danced the night away. Students enjoyed the opportunity to step outside of their comfort zones, from talking to unfamiliar faces, busting out dance moves, and donning their finest attire. Although there was downpour of rain, that didn’t stop students from enjoying every minute. Every year Pinewood votes for the princesses and princes of each grade, and the king and queen of formal. For the freshman class, the princess was Katherine Han, and the prince was Ryan Inouye. The sophomore class chose sophomores Nika Kozlov and Theo Shapiro. For the junior class, juniors Meghna Nanda and Reed Woods was crowned princess and prince, respectively. The senior class voted for seniors Lucy Hudson and Cole Bramlet. Finally the King and Queen were chosen by the entire high school. Pinewood voted for senior Zarin Mohsenin as Queen, and senior Chris Burton as King for their last year at Pinewood together. From dancing all night and getting blisters from high heels, singing at the top of your lungs, making new friends, and getting dressed up in the best clothes, winter formal was a highlight of the 2016-2017 school year.
