Dance Dress Code
This dance is a special evening and students should “dress up”.  However, please note that this is not a formal dance.  Tuxedos, formal gowns, strapless dresses, and backless dresses are not allowed.  Spaghetti strap dresses are allowed with a cover-up. We suggest that boys wear nice pants and a nice shirt. Our school’s dress code will be upheld. Please read Mr. Stoker's letter to families regarding the dance dress code.
