Messages from the Middle:
Our first middle school student council dance of the year is coming up tomorrow night from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in Fr. Brisson Hall. It looks like many of our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will join us for this fun event.

Below is a link for parents and guardians to sign up to bring baked goods or to help chaperone the dance. There is still room for two additional bakers and two chaperones. Thank you to those who have already volunteered!

Tickets will be sold at the door for $7.00 (if you do not yet have your ticket). We have a list of everyone who paid at lunch this week.

Attire for gentlemen:  Khakis or dress pants (not jeans) with a button down shirt. Tie and jacket or sweater is optional.

Attire for ladies:  Dress pants (not jeans) with blouse or sweater or skirt with a blouse or sweater are acceptable. Dresses can be no more than 2" above the knee and must have straps over the shoulder at least three inches wide.

Snacks:  We will order Chick-Fil A nuggets, chips, pretzels, and other munchies for the dance along with water and soft drinks. Donations of baked goods from parents will be greatly appreciated.

Cell phones:  Students may bring their cell phones to take photos in our "selfie booth" and communicate with their parents. Students are responsible for keeping up with their device throughout the evening.
