Upcoming semi-formal dances scheduled for high school and middle school students

Shine your shoes, and get ready to dance with two upcoming events geared toward letting our high school and middle school students shine. 

“This is a great opportunity to break up the long winter months with a night of dancing,”  Health and Physical Education Teacher Mackenzie Akin said.  

The first dance will be a semi-formal from 6-10 p.m. Feb. 4 at the high school gymnasium. It is open to grade 9-12 students. The event is hosted by the Class of 2023, the attire is semi-formal and theme colors are blue, silver, and white. 

Students may purchase tickets from Mrs. Jodi DeJong for $15; $20 if purchased the night of the dance.

Next, the Class of 2025 is hosting a winter semi-formal dance open to grade 6-8 students. Their dance will be from 7-10 p.m. Feb.10 at the high school gymnasium. Attire is semi-formal with theme colors of blue, silver, gold and white.  Tickets can be purchased for $10 each.

Grade 7 and 8 students may purchase tickets from Miss Akin in the high school at any time.  Grade 6 students can purchase tickets from Coach Jolene Mensing at the elementary school starting Jan. 17 during their physical education classes. 

If students receive any behavioral referrals between now and the dance, they will be unable to attend.

Students are allowed to bring a guest from another district; however, they must have a permission slip signed by their parent or guardian with the guest’s information. Permission slips can be obtained from Akin or Mensing.
