Hello Junior Class!

I would like to invite you to participate on this year’s promenade dance team.

 If you are interested in the promenade dance team (learning a choreographed dance to perform at prom), please join Mrs. Ross and myself in my room (#701) at 12:30pm on Monday, March 8th. This is my absolute favorite part of prom and I hope you will grab a partner and show up ready to be spectacular!! (No prior dance experience required.)
