Cactus Canyon’s PTO is holding an end-of-the-year dance from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, May 7, to celebrate the end of the school year.
Tickets will be $6, but the dance is not a major fundraiser for the group.
“PTO believes in celebrating a successful year and likes to do something special and fun for our students,” said president Dena Kimble. “We don’t expect to raise a lot of money, the event is all about the kids.”
PTO is going to be selling all sorts of things from food to games, pizza, drinks, glow items, and is going to have glow face painting and games.
“Our theme is (a) black light dance, so we will have black lights and glow-in-the-dark neon things,” said Kimble.
Since this is the last dance at CCJH for eighth graders, it is bittersweet for some students.
PTO also plans on having a promotion celebration event next week.
“PTO will be having a special eighth-grade promotion dance from 6-9 p.m. Friday, May 15, at the Multi-Generational Center. It will be formal,” says Kimble.
