The 8th Grade Banquet on Saturday, June 6th has been canceled.
I started planning for 8th Grade Banquet over a year ago with my co-chair Brandi Hunt. Many hours were spent, by many wonderful parent volunteers, organizing an event that I am sad to say will now not be able to happen. The reasons for this are many: grouping and social distance guidelines in effect for the foreseeable future, a lack of available venues, insurance considerations, and the complex feelings within the community about Covid-19.
Below is a link to a refund request form. The PTO Treasurer, Nicole Leiker, will be processing refunds as soon as she is able.
It has been tradition that left over monies from banquet have followed the class and gone into their prom fund. If anyone would like to help seed the Class of 2024 Prom Fund by donating your ticket cost that option is also available to you.
Curious what the theme was to have been? Well, it was going to be Hard Rock Hotel! Dinner would have been a Grammys Award show in the gym followed by dancing to a themed concert in the commons. Outside would have been the hotel pool/beach area with games. Inside also included a spa area, a truly bling, bling Casino experience, a 90’s/grunge escape room, 80s bathrooms featuring leading ladies and beastie boys, and even a modern country western area with camp fires and smores! Woodward would have been transformed into a night at a fancy resort for our 8th Graders.
Until we can all be together again and celebrate,
