Hello, we are Kim Coon and Mimi Osborne, the 6th grade Dance Coordinators. We wanted to get the details out to you so you can start planning for this wonderful evening for your children.

The 6th grade Winter Wonderland Dance will take place in the school cafeteria on Friday, December 1st from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. We hope your child will attend! We have a great evening planned for their first middle school dance.

We would love to have your help to pull this all off. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up at:

Here are the rest of the details:

“Tickets” will be sold the week of the dance, Monday, November 27 - Friday, December 1st during the 6th grade lunch shift.
The cost is $5 per student.
**We will be doing advance sales only; no tickets will be sold at the door.**
The dance is actually ticketless, meaning we will collect the student's name and emergency contact information in a spreadsheet at the time of the ticket purchase, but the student won’t receive a physical ticket. Teacher and/or parent volunteers will be checking a master list of ticket sales as the students enter the cafeteria the evening of the dance.

There will be a DJ, dancing, unlimited photo booth, food – including pizza, Goldfish, cookies, and water, and lots of fun!!

Students can be dropped off in the carline loop and enter through the front doors. You are welcome to park and walk your student in but you are not required to stay, we will have parents chaperoning for the evening. Children are expected to stay for the duration of the dance. If your child wants to depart the dance early, a parent MUST enter the building to pick them up, otherwise students are required to stay until 9pm. At 9pm, you may use the car loop for pick up or you may walk in to meet your student. Please make sure your child knows the plan.

Additional information:
Dance is for 6th grade TMS students only.
Dress is casual.
Students do not need a date.
Students cannot bring backpacks.
All school rules and dress codes apply.

Thank you for your support. We are looking forward to a fun night! The PTA is proud to present the 6th Grade Winter Wonderland Dance on December 1, 2017 from 7-9pm.
