OSA Student Council/Leadership is proud to announce that we have dances, back to back, two Fridays in November!
First up the Middle School Dance titled FALL FORMAL on November 8th from 6:30 to 8:30pm, DJ’d by Geronimo Coffin, will consist of students coming in their best attire under an autumn evening.
Then the High School Dance titled LIGHTS OUT on November 15th from 7:30 to 10:00pm, a dance party that explores what happens when the lights go out and glow sticks come up!
Both events have concessions, tickets will be sold at the round table at various prices and both events will take place at the Historic Sweet’s Ballroom.

Items most needed are: paint, glue, paper, linoleum blocks, yarn, scissors, fabric, pens, markers, pencils, etc. Nothing will be turned away! If you would like to make a donation, please send them to Room 316.  Thank you!
