6th-8th PBIS Dance
   Students at the middle school are buzzing with excitement this week in anticipation of our first school dance!
    The dance will be Friday, September 19, 2014 and all students will take part.  The dance will start at 1:05 and end at 3:00 P.M.
    Please note:  Students who ride the bus and cannot get picked up at 3 P.M. will still be able to ride the bus home.  We stop the dance briefly to allow those who need to or want to catch the bus time to do so.  The other kids will continue for about 40 more minutes and be released at 3 P.M.
    There is no cost to get in; students will use Gotcha’s they have earned for good behavior; and candy will be available for $1.  This is an informal dance so students do not need to dress up but many choose to do so.  It is much easier if students plan to wear the same clothes to school that they wear at the dance.
    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. Beam at the middle school at 815-568-5720.    Thank you.
