FNA is a parent supported event. Each dance requires a minimum of 20 volunteer parent-chaperones. The dance will be cancelled if 20 chaperones have not registered 4 days prior to that dance. Chaperones arrive at 6:30pm for a brief orientation and are welcome to bring the students with (they will wait in a separate area). Please park on the west side of the Washington Street lot. We request that chaperones stay until 9:15-30pm to help us with pick-up.
