Middle school dance canceled due to KU basketball


For anyone who still doubts that Lawrence is nuts about Jayhawk basketball, there is this bit of news: South Middle School has postponed a dance that was scheduled for Friday evening because it conflicts with the Sweet 16 game between Kansas and Michigan.

Julie Rea, the school secretary at South, said they just didn't think the dance would be well attended, considering the Jayhawks will be on TV at the same time. The dance will be rescheduled for another time.

The dance was scheduled for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday. The game is scheduled to start around 6:35 p.m. on the TBS channel.

And all the teachers/parents who would chaperone want to stay home and watch the game, too. Wise decision!

My pupil agrees that the low attendance would be even lower because of the game. Furthermore, middle school dances are important to building livelong interpersonal communication skills.

Plus.... now the middle school gym is freed up just in case things fall through with the facility in Arlington.
