Middle School Dance
As most of you know, the Middle School Dance is coming up! Lots of excitement going on! Here is some important information that you guys should know:

When: Friday, November 8
What: Time: 6:30pm – 9:30pm
Where: In the Black Box Theater
Why: To have fun!

A quick reminder, you don’t need a mask. If you don’t have one, no need to go buy one. Natural Beauty also counts! There also might be some spare mask so you can just take one. Something else that I would like to clarify is that you do not need to bring a “date”. If you want to, you can. However, you are not required to. If it makes you feel uncomfortable, no need to bring one. I hope you guys can all make it to the dance! Have fun!

"This I Believe...." Share Out
Next Tuesday, November 5, our 8th Graders will be sharing out their "This I Believe...." project with the 6th and 7th graders.  Be ready to find out what our 8th graders think, feel and believe is true next week!!
