On Friday, December 22, 1:05-2:45pm, the 8th grade will hold their annual “Dancing With The Stars” performance in the gym. During the month of December, students learn ballroom dancing in their Physical Education classes, leading to this grand performance right before the December vacation. Parents (as well as students and staff) are invited to sit in the bleachers and spectate. To see your child in formal wear dancing the foxtrot is an event not to be missed!
If you are buying your gifts and holiday essentials online on Cyber Monday, you can support our school and our students. Go to smile.amazon.com and Amazon donates to Bigelow Middle School PTO.
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.
