There will be a school dance for all students and guests tonight, the doors will open at 8:30 and it will run until 11:30. This will prove to be the last dance before the end of the school year, so the administration had decided to make it even better by making it a much music video dance. This includes a couple of giant video screens and a much music VJ.
The price of this dance has gone up from the usual five dollars to seven dollars in advance, or eight at the door. The extra money will go to pay for all the extra equipment that’s necessary to make this dance possible.
On Friday, April 16th, our school will be having a Much Music Video Dance. It will be held in the school cafeteria like a regular dance, but instead of simply having a regular DJ, this dance will have a gigantic video screen. Students from all grades are welcome to attend and sign in sheets are available in the office. The Dance will start at 8:30 and end at 11:30. It has been over three years since James M Hill has had a video dance!
