SACS 4-6 Dance

Team Triumph is hosting a Wild Western dance on February 16, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 pm.  The cost is $3.00. The dance is going to have a lot of Western style activities like “The Bandit Dance Off”. You can also dress up in western clothing and if you do, your name goes into a raffle. We will be drawing names for awesome prizes.  If you give the DJ 50 cents, you can give a shout out to a friend.  There will be drinks, snacks and sweets for sale as well. Students will be expected to follow all dance expectations. Students will need to be dropped off at the gym doors entrance and picked up at the front entrance of the school. Please make sure that you are on time to pick up your child.

Does art inspire you? Clouds that look like faces? Sugar? Discovering new galaxies? Artists have looked to the world around them for centuries to gain inspiration. This year’s 10th anniversary of Doodle 4 Google asks students to do the same. The winner’s artwork will be made into an interactive doodle on Google.com as well as loads of scholarships and prizes. 

Use your imagination to create a Google Doodle based on what inspires you.
