"Lucky To Have You" Family Dance Night • Friday, March 17th

In response to our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students' excitement about their recent dance unit in PE, the 6th grade classes are hosting "Lucky To Have You" - a family dance night for all Terrace Middle School students and their families - in an effort to continue raising funds for 6th grade Science Camp in May. Well-known, local, and volunteer dance unit instructors - Larry and Zoe Richardson - will be onsite this evening for whole-group guided lessons; TMS students will show off their skills, and the adults accompanying our students will surely cut a rug, too. Refreshments and St. Patrick's Day items will be available for purchase to ensure no one is pinched, and admission is FREE to all. No-cost childcare will be provided by CLHS Rotary Interact Club members for our families who wish to bring their younger children.

We're looking forward to spending our evening with you

on Friday, March 17th, 2017 from 6-8 pm.
