The 8th Grade Farewell Dance will be on FRIDAY, JUNE 2, 7:00-9:30 p.m.
We are in need of
helpers after school and during Team Time. Please see Mrs. Dede (163) if
you want to help during Team Time or Mr. Hofer (Club 134) if you want to
help after school. You do NOT have to be a member of Student Council to
assist with preparations.
If you are available after school on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays to assist with dance preparations, then please see the sign-up sheet outside of Mrs. Dede's room. If you stay after school, then please report to Mr. Hofer's room.

- Please know that ALL school rules for attire apply (Please refer to your school handbook). This means that what you wear should be TASTEFUL and SCHOOL-APPROPRIATE.
- NO: Jeans; sneakers; t-shirts; strapless/spaghetti strap dresses; low-cut, tight-fitting, super-short dresses. These have always been the rules of the dance.
- The 8th grade dance is NOT A FORMAL. It has never been a formal. It will never be a formal. That is what your prom is for in a few years.
- While we appreciate that some of you want to share your dresses on social media, please know that posting your selection on social media does NOT mean that what you have chosen is "off limits" to others and should not be treated as such.
- The above rules do NOT mean that we discourage other activities such as getting together for special pictures beforehand, going to get hair or nails done, or buying a special outfit. It means we want this to be a fun, low-pressure evening for which no one feels obligated to spend a lot of money.
- Light refreshments will be served. We encourage students to eat dinner before arriving, though.
- While students may have a
"special someone," this is NOT considered a date night. It is a night
when students are encouraged to come enjoy their time with their friends
rather than devoting time to one other individual.
