Masks, cakes, costumes, purple, green, and gold are all part of the Mardi Gras tradition, and they will carry over to LCMS as the theme of the 8th grade semi-formal dance for the 2016-17 school year. Scheduled for Saturday, May 6 (7-10:30 P.M.), it should be a night that can provide a little pep towards the end of the school year.
Over the past few years, the 8th grade dance has become increasingly popular with students and faculty alike. Almost like a prom for eighth graders, the dance allows students to dress up and get down! With decorations to add that Fat Tuesday feel and music to get the body moving, students break from their usual shyness on the dance floor to rock to the beats from local DJs.
Snacks and drinks keep students hydrated and energized throughout the night. These are picked up at a cooling oasis of tables and chairs decked out like al fresco dining that lend character to the evening. One might think they had traveled to New Orleans's French Quarter for the night.
If you're an eighth grader looking for a chance to make some lasting memories with your friends, take some unforgettable photos, and enjoy an evening of music, laughter, and good eats, the eighth grade dance is the place to be.
Tickets are on sale up until the night before the dance at $10 each--students cannot purchase tickets at the door. Only LCMS eighth graders are admitted. The dance will last from 7 to 10:30. Students should dress in semi-formal attire (no jeans or t-shirts!). Slacks, dresses, suits, and ties are a nice idea. Parents wishing to chaperone, provide refreshments, help decorate, or clean-up should contact Mrs. Debbie Francis.
