Middle School Dances

Middle School Dances are back, with colorful themes and a new competition.

Our dances have moved back to the Recreation Center where a live deejay will be on hand, providing music and dancing. Adult supervision is present at all times.

New this year is a food drive competition. The grade that brings the most canned goods – or gets the most outside donations brought to the Rec Center prior to the dance – will be posted and tweeted on social media, identified on our outdoor digital sign, and recognized on our indoor display screens.

Dances are open only to students in grades 6-8 who attend Centerville City Schools (Magsig, Tower Heights and Watts middle schools).

Middle School Dance FAQ...

Q: Does my child need to show an ID to get into the dances?

A: We no longer require an ID. Instead, we use the school roster provided to us by the three middle schools.

Q: Can parents observe or volunteer at the dances?

A: Yes. All parents are invited to come and observe what is taking place at ALL the dances. All who want to help and volunteer can contact Lori Fields by email or at 433-0130.

Q: Are participants well behaved?

A: All students are expected to be courteous and respectful. Recreation staff and two to four security guards maintain a safe environment and a host of activities keep kids occupied and promote a positive atmosphere.

Q: What if I volunteer and see something that seems to be inappropriate?

A: Volunteer parent chaperones are encouraged to join the fun. Volunteers are given specific instructions before each dance detailing rules of participation for students. Usually the kids are well behaved. Should a problem arise, volunteer chaperones can handle situations as they pertain to the guidelines OR ask one of the Rec Center staff to do so.

Q: What if my question is not answered here?

A: Contact Lori Fields by email or at 433-0130.

History of Our Middle School Dance Program

Middle school dances originally were hosted by Tower Heights Middle School and held at Tower Heights on Friday nights after high school football games. When the Washington Township Recreation Center opened in 1988, the Tower Heights PTO asked if we would get involved with the dances. We did, and primarily observed and assisted where needed. At the PTO's request, the recreation department took over the dances in 1989. The dances are now held on select Saturday nights over the entire school year.
