8th Grade Exit Party


8th grade exit party: Friday, May 15th at BMS
Theme: Cirque Du Baines
Dress:  The 8th Grade Exit Party – Cirque Du Baines – is a semi-formal event.  For gentleman, this means to wear whatever is more comfortable for you ranging from nice jeans and a collared shirt to a full suit or tuxedo.  Most 8th grade boys will probably wear dress pants, button down shirt and a tie.  Something similar to what you wore for career day would be appropriate.  For ladies, this means to wear a semi-formal or party dress.  Please be mindful of appropriate and more modest dress.  Very short dresses or cut-out and revealing dresses are not permitted.  Also, please ensure any strapless dresses are fitted properly and in a tasteful manner.  All students will be required to keep their shoes on at all times, so please wear shoes that you can wear all evening to dance the night away!
