The eighth grade dance will be held on December 17 at 7:30—9:30 P.M. The tickets cost five dollars and they will be sold at lunch on the 15th and 16th, and they will also be sold at the dance. The theme is tacky holidays. DJ Dave will be the DJ, and he will take request! Games will also be at the dance. They include Holiday Pictionary, a special sticky mitten game, and a several others. There will be different kinds of food available including, hotdogs, chips, pretzels, deserts, and there may be other options. Isabel Bankemper, eighth grader, said, “I am excited about the dance because there will be good food and I am going to have fun hanging out with my friends.”
It will be encouraged to wear ugly Christmas sweaters, decorating like a Christmas tree or snowman, and decorating your clothing. Mrs. Tonya Tierney, one of the parents organizing the dance said, “The options are limitless and there are a lot of ideas on Pinterest. There will be a contest for this, but it is optional because we understand some people may want to just dress nice. We want it to be fun and don't want anyone to avoid the dance due to dress code.” So even though it is encouraged to dress tacky, dressing however you would like is okay. Drawings for prizes will happen throughout the night that go along with the theme of the dance.
The PTSO and parents involved in the dance work hard on making the dance fun. They understand that not everyone will be able to make the dance, but they would love from everyone to try to come and hang out with your friends.
