Halloween Dance

The cost for the dance is $5 and we are still selling tickets in the cafeteria. You can also purchase concessions and pay for the “Hall of Screams” at the dance. The cost for the “Hall of Screams” is $2. You can wear a costume, no masks though. We will be having a costume contest. The dance is 6-8pm.

There are a few students who I told to stay after Friday to help set up for the dance. Those are the students that Ms. Mott and I talked to specifically on Tuesday and Wednesday that they are helping with the dance. Ms. Mott and I will make sure you have dinner before the dance starts. The students who are in the Hall of Screams are to wear ratty/tattered clothing as they are zombies. The escorts and doorkeepers are free to wear any costume that they wish. We should be done with clean-up around 8:15pm.

We are in need of:

Some Boxes – small big, etc.

Halloween Makeup

Fake Blood

If you have any extra at home, please feel free to bring with you on Friday. I will be in my classroom in the morning if you need to drop off your costume, boxes, make-up etc. A few students stated their parents would like to come and help with make-up. That is fabulous and we could use you around 5pm.

Aside from the Halloween Dance: Please make sure your dues are paid. Our bylaws state that you are not an active member if they are delinquent and will not be able to attend meetings. Additionally, you need to maintain a 3.5 GPS to attend meetings. Your grades are important!

Our next meeting is November 9th. If you are submitting something to be considered for convention it will be due that day and no later.

Hope you enjoyed your half day!
