8th Grade Formal Information-Friday, May 13, 7-9 PM

Greetings 8th Grade Dragon Nation!
Friday, May 13th is the 8th grade formal.  It is from 7pm-9pm in the Durham cafeteria. The formal is completely free for the students. They do not have to pay an entrance fee. They do not have to pay for the snacks or punch. They do not have to pay for the photobooth. There will be some photographers taking pictures. If students would like access to those photos, they may pay $5 for access that will be given on the last day of school. There will be a photo opportunity out front for the parents to take pictures.  
We ask that students dress in semi-formal to formal wear. No jeans, shorts, sweats, t-shirts, slides, etc.  The students were informed of the dress code during their history class but if they have any questions or need clarification, they can reach out to Miss Richmond (
Students who are attending the dance are required to be in attendance at school all day. If for some reason, they are not in school or miss part of the day, they need to have a doctor's note. If they do not have a doctor’s note, then they will not be allowed to attend the dance.  
If you have any specific questions, please reach out to Miss Richmond ( We are looking forward to this fun night celebrating the 8th graders!
Thank you!
