8th Grade Final Fling Information & Permission Slip

18 05 2018

Dear Grade Eight Parents,

It is difficult to believe that we are approaching the end of the school year. One important event for the Class of 2022 will be their graduation dance better known as the “Final Fling”.  The date of the event is June 22 at 7:30-10:00 p.m. This event is not a date event or open to outside students. This is a class social that hopefully all students will attend.

Our goal that evening is to provide happy memories of their middle school years as they make an exciting transition to high school. Also, to make it age appropriate. There are so many special events ahead for the students that this unique event should not eclipse future special moments.

Just some reminders: No Limousines should be used. The ladies should be comfortable for the evening in a summer dress, pants with a nice top or a family event outfit.  The gentlemen should also be comfortable in nice shorts, collared shirts. The students should dress with comfort in mind.

A buffet will be served all night long.  Any student with food allergies will be personally contacted to assure their safety and may select a desired food.  

I assure you good conversation, dancing and food will be enjoyed by all that evening. I have spent several weeks working with Grade 8 Gym classes learning to dance, in groups and ballroom style.  Parents, your children know how to dance!

I encourage you as you drop off the children that night to come into the gym look around, take pictures.  The photos taken will be treasured for a lifetime.

Thank you for your continued support,

Noreen Abati

Team Leader
