Fling brings residents of Sandy Springs to school

By Elizabeth Wilkes

Students and families around Sandy Springs enjoyed carnival games, inflatables, food, Battle of the Bands, and the movie Frozen at the annual “Fling at the Springs.” While the event was planned to take place on the football field, inclement weather forced relocation inside in the gym and theater on on Saturday, April 19.

Previously called “Saturday at North Springs,” student government has sponsored the spring fling for the past several years as a way to reach out to both the student body and surrounding communities.

“Fling at the springs prevailed, despite the rain!” said student body president, Annie Brandt. “In the years to come I have faith that our spring event will continue to grow in popularity within the Sandy Springs area.”

Food trucks were a new addition to the event this year, with Hail Caesar providing chicken Caesar wraps and salads, among other items.

“I loved how there was a balance between having a good quantity of food and being healthy,” said sophomore Dionna Green, who coordinated the food trucks for the event.

Junior Langston Michael of the band Anonymous was in charge of organizing the Battle of the Bands, which was a huge success. The band Vernon Oak, headed by one of our own North Springs seniors, J.R. Stein, came out on top.

“The highlight of Fling at the Springs was definitely Battle of the Bands,” said junior Madhu Baskaran. “It was awesome to see the community come together and congregate under the influence of music.”


Local families as well as students’ siblings and teachers’ kids particularly enjoyed the giant slide and moonwalk inflatables in the gym.

With the magic of senior Audrey LeSage, the night concluded with a showing of Disney’s immensely popular Frozen.
