7th & 8th Grade Winter Dance


  • Friday, December 2
  • Students can only attend during for their grade-level time.
    • 7th Grade 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    • 8th Grade 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
  • The cost is $5 the week of (purchased during lunch), $7 at the door.
  • Drop off and pick up will occur at the main entrance. Tickets and student ID's will be required to enter the dance. See the front office if you've lost your ID.
  • A photo booth is a possibility, and a small cash fee will be required for photo booth use.
  • Free snacks will be provided (donations needed - see link to sign up and donate).
  • Family volunteers are needed at the snack table - sign up here.


  • Only students who are enrolled at ETMS may attend the dance or be on school grounds.
  • No limousines.
  • Nice school or dressy clothes are appropriate for all students (jeans or slacks - no shorts, collared shirts or sweaters, dresses should have sleeves or two straps). Although ETMS recognizes the value of allowing individual student self-expression, the dance is an extension of the school day and student handbook policies still apply. Students who violate these guidelines will not be allowed to enter the dance.
  • Students must be in attendance for no less than the last 4 periods of the school day of the dance. Students may not have been in ISS or OSS the day of the event.
  • Students must meet academic and student conduct eligibility requirements outlined in our ETMS student handbook to attend the dance (based on 1st quarter grades).
  • Student behavior will be expected to reflect participation in a school event. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated, and discipline consequences and removal from the dance will occur.

Snack Donations Needed for Winter Dance

  • Free snacks will be provided for students (cookies, popcorn, crackers, cheese, etc.)
  • Sign-up Link
