East Middle School had a dance on April 27th for all EMS students. The theme was a spring luau end of the year dance. Students put on their leis, shorts, or a summer dress, and dance the night away to the latest pop tunes. "I was so beast at the Wobble!" said Audrey Hampton of 7th grade.
The special night was put on by the EMS PTO (parent/student organization) with the help of the Bridge whom let the dance be held in the Foundry.
Drawings were made randomly throughout the 2 hours and 30 minute dance for prices such as ITunes gift cards, movie tickets, Silver Dollar City passes, and much much more!
Brianna Hickey and Breanna Pace of 6th grade (who both won passes to the Joplin pools) said "Our favorite part was when What makes you Beautiful by One Direction came on, we screamed it!"
