Eighth grader Tyler Acosta said, “I loved the dance; it was so cool. I loved the lights and and the really loud music. It made it so much fun to go to.”
The dance provided food and drinks for those who attended. Tickets, at the cost of eight dollars, provided students not only entry to the dance, but the chance to become a Stacey PTSA member. Students whose parents had already paid for PTSA membership at registration received a free ticket. Purchases of membership helps support the PTSA and raise money for other future events at our school.
