From the Principal’s Office
Our first All-School Dance is coming up next Friday, October 27, 6:30-9:00pm. Dance tickets are $6 and will be on sale this week and next during lunch in the cafeteria. Students can hang out, play ping pong or other games, and listen and dance to music in the gym. Pizza and snacks will be sold in the cafeteria.
Our dances are open to all Bigelow students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Asking a classmate as a “date” to the dance is unnecessary and discouraged. We want all students to come and have fun with friends. The theme of this dance is Halloween, and costumes (but no masks) are encouraged!
A few parent chaperones are needed. (Costumes optional!) Please email Assistant Principal Lucas Mogensen at Lucas_Mogensen@newton.k12.ma.us if you are interested in helping out. Parent chaperones help take tickets, sell refreshments, and supervise the hallways; teachers and counselors chaperone inside the gym.
Bigelow dances are for Bigelow students only, and all school rules apply at this event. The dance ends promptly at 9:00 p.m., and we ask that parents pick up on time at the gym entrance then. For safety reasons, students are not allowed to walk home, even in a group, without parent accompaniment.
