We need YOUR help on Friday! 8th Grade Dance

We REALLY need your help! The 8th Grade dance is this Friday from 6:30pm-9:00pm and we need 7th grade parents to chaperone and 8th grade parents to help decorate on Friday and clean up on Saturday.
The 8th grade parents are not allowed to be at the actual dance but we promise- next year we will be doing the same for your kids!

So if you can please help out, PLEASE let us know by emailing Emily Lee at emilylee003 at gmail dot com.

Decorating starts at 8:00am on Friday and will go until around 5:00pm. Any time you can help would be so appreciated!! (7th grade parents are welcome too if you can). We do have so much fun decorating!!

Chaperoning would simply mean we need you at the dance at 6:00pm and the dance is over at 9:00pm. This is pretty fun too because you actually get to see how much fun the kids have.

Clean up is Saturday morning around 8:00/9:00am and again- ANY HELP would be so appreciated!

Our school is wonderful because of YOU!
P.S. Tickets are still available for 8th Graders: $15 Thursday and Friday morning $20 at the door.
