Tickets for the Birthday Bash Dance occurring on Saturday, February 10, 7:00pm – 10:00pm, are now on sale. Tickets are $10 for singles and $15 for couples, and can be purchased at the Treasurer’s Office. The purpose of a school dance is to promote spirit and community, and to provide a safe place for students to socialize. However, without ticket sales, the dance cannot occur. As of today, there have been only 5 tickets sold. If we do not sell 100 tickets by the end of the day tomorrow, February 7, the dance will be cancelled. Let’s show our spirit and get those tickets purchased!
