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.  We suggest that boys wear nice pants and a nice shirt.  Students attending the dance should plan to be in the Commons by 5:30p.m. and remain in the building until the dance is over, unless they have made prior arrangements with an administrator.
