We do try to avoid conflicts between our school-sponsored events. With the number of activities going on at LMS, this is a daunting task (and that’s a good thing by the way!). We realize that there is a cheering competition on the day of the Snowball. To allow more time for our cheering squad to return from the comp and prepare for the dance, we will move the dance to 7-9pm instead of 6-8pm. We are looking forward to a great dance AND a great cheering performance!
