SC is getting ready to start planning our Middle School Dances! This fall, winter, and spring the dances will be open to 7th and 8th graders. This time, the student body has a say in the attire! We would like to know if the 7th and 8th graders would like to have a casual dance at some point this year. This could mean jeans, a flannel or a t-shirt, and YOU get to decide. You will also get a chance to make suggestions about what theme you think would be fun for the middle school dances! Submit your answers in the survey below and please have it completed by Thursday, October 5th by 3:30pm. Thank you!
