7th/8th Grade School Dances

Several times during the year, school dances are held for 7th and 8th grade students. These are fun, casual dances normally held in the gym of the grade school with a DJ. A nominal entrance fee is charged for the Fall and Field Day dances. Supervision is by an RGS staff person and parent chaperones. These dances are organized by the 7/8 Leadership class.

6th grade is invited to the June Field Day dance.

For more information or if you’d like to help, please contact your 7/8 Activity Chairs: Wendy Domreis (7th) and Suzi Maddocks (8th).

Student Dance Agreement/Waiver and ticket pricing information will be finalized soon.
