The 7th grade party is scheduled for next TUESDAY, October 22nd; and the 6th grade party is just one week later, TUESDAY, October 29th — both during ASP 1 and 2 in the cafeteria — so you can still take the late bus home. There will be food, a DJ, dancing, games, raffles, prizes and more. And please — despite the Halloween theme — NO COSTUMES.  Trick or Treat, wolves!!
