Save-the-Dates and TBD Events

Happy New Year!

While the calendar now tells us it is 2022, our nemesis Covid-19 still hasn't quite gotten the message that its time has passed... So while we attempt to plan a more "normal" slate of activities this winter and spring, we ask for your ongoing patience and understanding.

Junior High Masquerade Ball - Friday, February 25, 2022, 7pm (see next section for details!) - chaired by Tara Veith

Father/Son Bowling at Stone Lanes - Sunday, March 6, 2022, from 3-5pm (registration link to come soon!) - chaired by Amanda Lass

Fashion Show - Thursday, April 7, 2022 - co-chaired by Megan Stacey and Molly Ziegler

Grandparents Day - Thursday, April 28, 2022 (fingers crossed on this one which has already been postponed from the Fall) - chaired by Melissa Wirtz

Father/Daughter Dance - TBD - chaired by Amber Moran

Mother/Daughter Tea - TBD - chaired by Anna Trebbi

Jr. High Dance - February 25th!

Happy New Year everyone.... It's already time to send out information about the February dance!!!

I have attached a PDF copy of the Invitation that was sent out via Paperless Post last week. Please RSVP no later than 2/14 so I can plan for the right amount of drinks and desserts.

On that topic- I know it is tradition for the 8th graders to do dinner before this dance. My thought is that we will NOT serve dinner (pizza) at this dance. Instead, all kids can eat beforehand and we will have PLENTY of desserts, drinks and snacks at the dance.

These dances are a ton of FUN (and are an awkward right of passage), so if the spirit moves you, here's the volunteer link:


Detailed info about pick-up/drop-off and the rest of the night will be emailed out as the date gets closer!
