It’s time for our last school dance! In response to parent and teacher requests to decrease costs, we are happy to announce that Kristin Poirier, our PTO Dance Chair, has found a more affordable venue (thank you Kristin!).
There are still costs involved with school dances – renting space, food, and a DJ that need to be paid for. This time round, however, we would like to thank the Fortunato family for donating the DJ and saving us this fee. This donation has reduced our admittance from $10 to $8. (Previous dances at the PNC were $15.)
Our new location is the Knights of Columbus hall in Raleigh. The dance space is smaller, so as a result, we will not be able to have an unlimited number of parent chaperones in the dance at one time. If you would like to chaperone, please be sure to use the signup below to reserve a space (we still really need you!!).
ADDITIONALLY, we have an option for parents to stay and socialize in an adjacent lounge, staffed with a bartender (cash only), which will allow you to check in on the dance, avoid all the back and forth driving, and to catch up with or meet new parents. Our parents (and teachers) are fun so come on out!
Lastly, our final PTO General Meeting will occur in the lounge at 7pm to vote in our new board and approve our budget for next year. Your attendance is greatly appreciated! (Please note, first shift chaperones will need to stay in the dance during the meeting.)
