Sweetheart Dance Thank Yous!

Thank you to ALL who planned and attended the Sweetheart Dance this past Friday night.  We had an attendance of 155 students, 297 total guests, and lots of fun!

Thank you to our fantastic decorations committee for transforming our school into a beautiful ballroom for the night and planned a fun craft and games for the girls: Kim Nguyen, Beth Treadwell, Sheri Olsen, Amy Smith, Emily Myers, Veronica Barlow, Krista Beigle, Melissa Bisbee, Whitney Nallenthamby, Becca Eggleston, Renea Hamilton, and Carmel Hamilton.

The appetizers and desserts were divine thanks to our food committee: Kim Lawson, Mary Berwyn, Jamie Cottrell, and Casey Corns.

Shefali Desai put together special souvenir bags and bracelets for the girls. Dan Colella created the impressive graphic design for our invitations and advertising, and topped off the night and donated his time and talents as our amazing DJ!  Thank you to Becca Eggleston, our event chair, Robin Williams, our treasurer, Jory Hastings, our yearbook photographer who captured the evening, Al Reyes, our building engineer, for helping with the ceiling decorations, as well as Mrs. Milley and Mrs. MacArthur for supervising and dancing with our students and dates throughout the night.

Numerous WME parents, WME teachers, middle school and high school students donated their time to help set up before the dance, volunteer during the event, and clean up afterward.  We appreciate all of you & could not have done this without you!! We hope everyone had an amazing night!
