7th grade family dinner
It’s Fall y’all, so let’s help our 7th graders celebrate cooler temperatures, colorful foliage, and everything pumpkin spice at the annual 7th Grade Family Dinner!
Thursday, November 14
This awesome tradition allows 7th graders and their families an evening to relax and get to know each other better, and have fun doing it! This Fall feast will be catered once again by Maggio’s, and will include a cookie, hot chocolate, and coffee bar as well as a DJ and photo booth for making memories. Tickets are $12 per person and must be purchased in advance; tickets are available online at Pay4SchoolStuff.
Volunteers are needed to make this event a success. Please sign-up to volunteer for part of the night.
