We will be having our first-ever Valentine’s Day Dance on Thursday, February 14th from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. This is a fun reason to get dressed up and dance with your little sweetheart!
The cost to attend the dance is $2.00 a person, which includes a photo! Due to limited space in the auditorium, this event will be limited to the first 200 students and their chaperones who pay the admission fee.
This will be a fun event for all who attend! We will have awesome music played by our very own DJ Wells. The dance will begin at 6:00 and end at 7:30. Guests may begin arriving on campus at 5:45.
We will be selling pizza for $2.00 a slice and drinks for $1 .00 each at the event!
If you have any questions about the dance, please contact Mr. Boatner at TBoatner@ebrschools.org.
