On Friday, December 21, from 1:55pm to 2:45pm, the 8th grade will hold their annual “Dancing With The Stars” performance in the gym. The 8th graders have been working hard to learn their Foxtrot and Tango steps in Physical Education classes, and will be putting on a display of their footwork just before the vacation begins. It’s a sight not to be missed–hope you can make it!
Parents (as well as students and staff) are invited to sit in the bleachers and spectate. To see your child in formal wear dancing the foxtrot is an event not to be missed!
