On April 18, students and staff will go head to head in a basketball game to crown this year’s winner at the annual student-staff basketball game. The event will be held in the gym during seventh period and money raised from ticket sales will benefit Senior Prom.


Staff, including teachers, coaches, and administrators, will take on senior boys and girls basketball players. From ankle breakers to crossovers, this event is a “must see” says Brian Kratky an AP at Cypress Falls who is organizing the event.


Spectators might see some epic dunks or long range three pointers during the game,” Kratky said. “Even if basketball is not your thing, take a break from seventh period and come end the school day with an awesome event to benefit Cy Falls Students.”


Tickets cost $5.00 and will benefit Senior Prom later this year. Mr. Kratky has one goal for the event and hinted at a special halftime performance.


“Have as many students attend as possible to raise money for our seniors, and to continue the tradition of the Golden Eagle Staff dominance over the student basketball team,” Kratky said. “The event will be a fun way to end the day before a three day weekend watching the staff show off their basketball skills and dominate the senior basketball players.”


Dance teacher Lindsay Rubenstein shared a little information about a faculty halftime performance that she is preparing and what to expect.


“We have a total of eight teachers participating this year,” Rubenstein said. “We are bringing a little bit of old school and a little bit of new school to this halftime performance. It’s going to mix some classic 80s and 90s hits with some of today’s hip hop.”


Whether it’s basketball or dancing, there is something for everyone and plenty of memorable moments.


“We are having a lot of fun practicing and preparing, and we just want our students to share in that with us,” Rubenstein said. “It’s also a chance for us as teachers to connect to the culture of our students. I think our kids will get a kick out of us attempting to hit moves like the woah and shoot.”
