Decorating Help Needed for 8th Grade Dance

Help us make this a memorable event for our students! We’ll need help transforming our school library into a magical place:
Wednesday, June 11th, 8:00 pm – Sorting through decorations and hanging curtains. We realize this is FVHS graduation night, but anyone that can come at 8:00 would be appreciated.  Tall ladders (and hopefully Dads) are needed to hang the curtains.

Thursday, June 12th, 1:00 pm – The majority of the decorating takes place here.

Friday, June 13th, 8:00 am – Finishing up the decorating for the Big Night!

Friday, June 13th, 10:00 pm – Tear down and returning decorations to the Fulton storage shed.

We will need the following items if anyone can bring them:

Ladders (short and tall)

Staple Guns

Duct Tape

Any Mardi Gras style decorations you would like to donate.

If you have any questions, contact Jean DeSantis at Thanks for your support!

Refreshment Donations Needed for 8th Grade Dance

The food committee is requesting refreshment donations to make this event a successful one for our children. Although we welcome donations from any Fulton family, we are hoping 8th grade families will donate at least one of the following: 12 packs of soda, cases of bottled water, 2 dozen homemade cookies or cupcakes per family (delivered on June 13).
We are also looking for someone who might have a connection to a restaurant to help us get some fried rice or other large quantities of food (salad, Mac & Cheese, pizza etc) donated or at a discounted price. If you have drinks to donate, please deliver them to the school office marked “8th Grade Dance.” If you would like to bake or have a restaurant connection, please contact Chris Allcorn at so we can keep track of how much food we have coming in.  Thank you!
