What to Expect At the Dance

At this year’s Rosemont Middle School dance, the theme will be Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is a celebration the day before Lent, which is a 40-day season of prayer and fasting that begins on Ash Wednesday. It is a Christian religious observance. Mardi Gras, put in simple terms, is a day of doing a lot of what you are fasting from. Our dance is Mardi Gras because we are having a celebration, and has nothing to do with religion at all.

(flyers for the dance went out first period 4/19-4/20)

Things to expect

Tickets will be on sale beginning Wednesday, May 3rd at lunch in the amphitheater for $20 through May 12th. They will also be available at the door on the night of the dance. For the dance, anyone that wants a ticket to go can get one. Although, first come, first serve for the food tickets, so make sure you buy food tickets early before they sell out!

The Dance is for 7th and 8th grade Rosemont students only. No exceptions. You must have your student ID with you and your dance ticket to get in, no matter what.

The Dance begins at 6:00 pm. If you arrive after 7:00 pm, a parent must bring you to the entrance or you will not be admitted. All students will enter

There are going to be many different fun activities at this year’s 2023 Rosemont dance. One thing there is going to be is food. A food ticket is 13$. In N Out will be served from 6-9 pm at different time segments. One segment goes from 6-7, another from 7-8, and the last one from 8-9. Only 500 burgers will be sold, so make sure that you get a food ticket in time!
Refreshments will be available at the snack bar. (Bring money if you are interested in getting snacks.)

Inappropriately dressed patrons will not be admitted.)

If you are to have a question about the dress code or a question about an outfit that you have already bought and are questioning whether or not it will be appropriate for the dress code, you can show your clothes to Mrs. Park, Mr. Laing, or Ms. Risse.

Have a great time at this year’s 2023 Rosemont Mardi Gras Dance!
