A Quest for Excellence

PTO Week in Review

5th Grade White Out Dance
On Friday, May 3rd from 6-8:00 we are planning a fun and exciting evening for the graduating class of 2019!!  We decided on a WHITE OUT theme and are asking that your child wears dressy casual white (white dresses, skirts, collared shirts preferred but no athletic attire).  The gym will be transformed and the dj will bring black lights and have the kids entertained by dancing and playing games.  They can also take some pictures in the photo booth or pause and have a snack.  We are asking for $10 per child to fund this event and please sign up to donate something by clicking on this link  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0E4EABAC2DA4FC1-shongum .   So fill out your child’s form and return it as soon as possible before April 26th.  Any questions please feel free to contact Dana O’Mailey or Heather Miller.   http://www.shongumpto.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/White-Out-Invite.pdf
