ASB Spirit Day Sept. 24 - Twins Day

Dana is holding their first ASB Spirit Day on Friday, September 24th. Show your school spirit by dressing up! Twins Day is a school day when kids pair off with a friend and dress alike. Plan to wear the same shirt and pants as your friend. The more friends in your group the better! Activities planned for lunch!


ASB is planning on selling Dippin Dots at the ASB store on Wednesdays. The store should be open for business at lunch on or before the first week in October.

Join The EVOLVE Dance Group
We are excited to have Dance To EvOLvE at Dana Middle where you get to ‘Dance! Design! Direct!‘. Do it all in this unique student-directed class that goes beyond traditional dance classes.  The EvOLvE class combines dance instruction with creative freedom allowing the dancers to be the decision makers by exploring choreography, music selection, show management, and art and costume design for their end-of-session performance.  Dancers love this fun class because it allows peer interaction and truly lets their imagination shine, and parents love this positive and high-energy class because it builds confidence, teamwork and communication skills while also developing dance skills.  Beginner to advanced as there is a lot of small group work. Great for Boys and Girls.
