7th & 8th Grade Dance Information
Students should not arrive before 7:30 pm
DANCE GUIDELINES AND CONDUCT EXPECTATION:
Dances begin at 7.30 PM, not earlier.
Dances end at 10.00 PM, not later.
Dances are only open to Norwell residents.
No backpacks, purses, bags, hats, food, beverages, cameras or cell phones are permitted in the dance room. As a general rule, the less you bring the better, as the “coat room” is quite cramped. Students may ask to use a chaperone’s cell phone to call home if needed.
No weapons or sharp implements are permitted (including laser pointers or tasers).
No pushing, shoving, wrestling, fighting, running, jumping or lifting or any type of threatening physical behavior will be permitted.
To protect town property, no gum chewing, throwing of any candy, garbage or drinks, climbing on the stage, chairs, or windowsills or any other destructive behavior will be permitted.
The dress code in effect at the Norwell Middle School is required for all dances. Attendees not in compliance will be asked to change or leave the dance (with a parent).
Appropriate dancing only. This means no grinding, no hands resting below the waist during slow dances, no kissing and no lap sitting.
All food and drink must be disposed of in the trash bin before reentering the dance room.
Swearing and inappropriate comments/language are not permitted.
No one many leave the dance early unless accompanied by a parent.
Our dances have a solid reputation for “uneventful” and safe fun. We expect that this year will be no different and are looking forward to sharing this experience with your children. Candy and drinks will be sold at reasonable prices.
Thanks again for your support. Should you have any questions, or wish to assist in chaperoning these dances (club membership is not required), please contact Liza North at the address listed below. We welcome and need assistance in continuing to provide a safe and fun evening for your children.
