Middle School Fall Dance Party

The Middle School Fall Dance will be on November 2nd, 2018 from 7:00-9:00 pm. Wear your Halloween costume and come have a spooky time!
It is imperative that we have adequate supervision at the dance to make it happen. We are hopeful that parents will volunteer an hour of their time by signing-up for a shift. Of course, if you plan to be around for the whole dance, please feel free to sign up for as many shifts as you’d like! You can sign-up for shifts at Fall Middle School Dance.
Tickets will be sold in the cafeteria during lunch on 10/23, 10/26, 10/30 and 11/2 . They are $5 in advance or $7 at the door. Please note, the dance is for 6-8 graders who currently attend Indianola or did in the past. Past Indy students should complete the permission slips and submit it to Ms. Koeth by 10/31. If you have questions, please contact Jorie Schwartz at jorieschwartz@yahoo.com.
