Senior Fundraiser

Teachers are needed for The Senior Class of 2020 fundraiser in November to raise funds for their Grad Night event. They plan to host a ‘So You Think You Can Dance?,’ type event to help raise these funds. They need teachers help in making it a fun, exciting, and successful night. It has the same concept as Dancing With The Stars.

∙ 10-15 Students will be dancing with an adult of their choosing. If the students would like to have a small group with one adult or more, they can do that as well.

∙ The adult must sign off that they will dance with the student(s).

∙ The students and adults have to come up with their own routine, choice of song, props (if wanted) and costumes or attire. Music has to be approved by school administrators.

∙ You will have about a month to host your practices. Practices cannot interfere with class time; practices have to be done before or after school, during lunch, or a conference period if the student has off as well.

∙ It is highly encouraged for you and your student to advertise your performance. Signs in your hallway, etc.

∙ The night of the event there will be judges to judge the routines.

∙ There will be jars set up for monetary votes for each set of performers that will be added to your judge’s scores. teachers will be able to perform on the night of the event, November 7 at 6pm. If you have any questions about the event please contact Amanda Boone at 3102.
