VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR MOTHER SON DANCE
The Mother Son Dance Committee has been hard at work planning all the details for this year's Mother Son Dance, which will take place on Saturday, March 10th.
Volunteers are needed to help transform the Fieldhouse into the perfect setting for our Rock and Roll themed evening for Mothers/Guardians and Sons. Also greatly needed is help cleaning up after the dance. Please consider volunteering an hour or two of your time. Remember - "Many hands make light work", so kindly help out if you are able to. Visit our Sign Up Genius for the volunteer schedule by clicking here.
MOTHER SON DANCE - SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 2018-REGISTRATIONS NEEDED BY MARCH 3RD
We invite all Moms and Guardians to join us on Saturday, March 10, 2018 for our annual Mother Son Dance. Please come and join us for an evening of dinner and dancing, and some Mother-Son bonding time. Whether you are a Freshman Mom, a Senior Mom, or somewhere in between, this evening promises to be fun for all! This year's theme is "Mother Son Rock and Roll Tour", so feel free to add a little 'rocking flair' to your semi-formal attire!
Please click here to register.
SENIOR MOMS - PICTURES NEEDED ASAP!
At the Mother Son Dance, we recognize the Seniors in a special way with a Senior Baby Photo Contest and a Senior Slide Show. We need you to mail an 8X10 baby photo of your son (COPIES ONLY! NO ORIGINALS!) These photos are displayed at the Mother/Son Dance and voted upon by the students for various awards. The Senior Slide Show is a video of pictures of the Class of 2018 from Freshman through Senior year. The boys really enjoy seeing these pictures and we need you to email photos to be included in this slide show. Make this night memorable and fun ~ SEND PICTURES!! Please click here for information on sending in those cherished photos.
