On Saturday, May 13th, the eighth grade students began their night with tributes from their teachers. Mrs. Fitz, Mr. Perkins, and Ms. Bowman read paragraphs about each student and what they admired about them. This was a touching time for the students because who doesn’t want to be talked nicely about by their teachers? Joey MacGregor and AJ Hudock spoke about Mrs. Fitz and talked about how everyone was going to miss her. Mrs. Fitz also received a gift of her favorite quote from Robert Frost in a frame from fellow teachers.

Later they spent their night busting moves on the dance floor at the eighth grade dinner dance. The dance began with the awkward split room of girls on one side and boys on the other. The students spent time dancing in groups instead of a girl and a boy dancing together.

Gloria Leo stated, “I would rather dance with my (girl) friends than dance with a boy.” Other girls agreed and said what is the point dancing of awkwardly dancing with a boy when you can go crazy with a group of girls.

The teachers use this time as a way for the eighth grade to have a special event only for their grade to bond together and make closer friendships with their classmates.
