Dances are intended for Mt. Ararat Middle School students only. All school rules, including expectations for dress code and appropriate student behavior, pertain to after-school functions. Students who refuse to follow school rules will be sent home and may lose their eligibility for attending future events. Students are expected to enter the dance upon arrival and to remain at the dance for the entire event. Any student who leaves the designated dance area will not be permitted to return and will be asked to call a parent for pick-up. Students must be in attendance on the day of the dance in order to participate, unless they have been granted special permission by administration ahead of time.
All dances (except for the 8th Grade Semi-Formal) cost $5.00. Refreshments are available for purchase for a small fee. Sixth Grade dances are on Thursdays, directly after school from 2:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Students must purchase tickets in advance and may take the late bus home. Seventh and Eighth Grade dances are held on Friday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The final dances of the year are an evening dance for 6th/7th Grade and a Semi-Formal for 8th Grade. Please see the school calendar for specific dates.
Please plan with your child for pick-up immediately after the event out of respect for those volunteering their time to provide these opportunities for your children. Parents must enter the building to pick up their child at the conclusion of the dance.
