Attention Bucktown Families: Did you have fun at the Father/Daughter Dance? Was the Mother/Son dance the night of your life?  If you enjoyed those events, come out for the 8th-grade sponsored Cinco de Mayo Family Prom this Friday, May 3rd!  There is no need to wear formal attire- feel free to come as you are!  This dance is open to ALL grade level students and their families- it is truly a whole school event.
