On June 3rd, the long awaited 8th grade dance will be taking place at the Westin Colonnade in one of the newly remodeled ballrooms. The event begins at 7:30 in the evening, and there will be dinner served before the party begins. After the nerve-wracking wait for the announcement, the 8th graders happily rejoiced when they heard that enough people had paid for the event to go on. This event will be the last chance the 8th graders have to all be together, as next year the group will disperse into different high schools.

One of the most hotly discussed topic for the dance are the outfits the participants will wear. As the girls rush to their friends for advice on dresses and boys argue on their color schemes, we unfortunately have to remind you that there is a dress code.

The rules are as follows:

  • No canes
  • No strapless
  • No bare midriff
  • Clothing must at least reach finger-tip length.
  • Suggested attire is formal

After struggling ourselves with trying to find some nice clothing, we have decided to provide you with some options on where to get your evening outfit.
