Top 10 Things I Learned at Tonight's Middle School Dance
  • We were able to get about 2/3 of our middle school students out for the dance tonight (a great turnout for a busy time of the year).

  • A group of middle school boys are aspiring acrobats (they are pretty impressive).

  • We have some talented dancers at Holy Cross Academy.

  • Mrs. Miller did a great job in helping with tonight's dance and securing our DJ (he was great).

  • Our 6th grade students represented themselves well and showed they belong at the dance (MS dances were previously just for 7th and 8th graders).

  • Our Middle School Student Council did a wonderful job of planning this dance for their peers.

  • We have parents who are wonderful bakers...yum!

  • Our students are experts at resetting Fr. Brisson Hall for Sunday Mass.

  • Middle school parents are wonderfully supportive and helped make our dance a success.

  • Middle school students attack trays of Chick-Fil A nuggets like a pack of Velociraptors (they crushed 320 nuggets in mere minutes...it was frightening).
