6th Grade Dance Party

GJHP would like to invite all 6th grade students to the annual sixth grade dance party!

Friday, March 10th 2017


Central School Small Gym

 $15 online/$20 at the door 

What is the 6th Grade Dance?

The Sixth Grade Dance is a social event for the Glencoe Sixth Graders.  It is held in the small gym at Central School and is sponsored by the GJHP (Glencoe Junior High Project).  Our Youth Directors and volunteer board members will be there to chaperone the event and make sure the night is filled with fun.  This year FAMOS! DJ Entertainment will be there to keep the music playing and familiarizing the kids with some of the traditional activities they will encounter next year at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.  Drinks and treats will be provided.

What is the attire for the dance?

The attire for the dance varies by what the individual is comfortable wearing.  Our goal is for everyone to have fun and be comfortable.  Many of the girls dress in nice dresses, however, nice pants or other outfits are completely acceptable.  Some girls wear heels, others choose comfort and wear flats or even Converse.  It is up to the individual.  Most of the boys wear khakis or dress pants and a dress shirt.  Some of the boys choose to wear ties or even jackets.  That is completely dependent upon the comfort of the individual.

Is this a couples dance?

This is not a couples dance but rather a social gathering for all Glencoe Sixth Grade Students.  Often groups of students arrive together, but EVERYONE is welcome.
