The school cafeteria will take on a distinctively French feel on Nov. 30 in preparation for middle-school dance carrying the theme “A Night in Paris.” The event originally had been scheduled for Oct. 26, but Hurricane Sandy forced Brevard Public Schools to close all campuses due to winds in excess for 40 miles per hour.
“The decorations for the dance are going to be pretty great,” Middle School SGA President Rachel M. said. “We are putting white Christmas lights around the two big poles and some on the ceiling. The art department is making an Eiffel Tower, and we are having lots of balloons.”
Tickets will be sold all week during both lunches for $6, and students must have a parent permission slip signed in order to attend the dance, which will last from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
“The biggest reason we have the permission slips it to ensure that parent come and get their children since they can not drive.” SGA sponsor Bob Sarver said. “It is basically an acknowledgment that their parents will come pick them up at certain hour.”
Sarver said that Middle School SGA has done a great job despite having few meetings and voting for officers only a month ago.
“I am so excited.” Rachel M. said, “I can’t wait for the final output of the dance. Everyone has put in so much work and effort. I just can’t want to see the end result and how people like it.”
