Middle school night was Friday night at the Viper football game where 8th graders, who are in band, dance and football, from Canyon Ridge and Four Points middle schools, were invited to participate with students in the same organizations at Vandegrift.
It is a night the middle school is welcomed to get a glimpse of what is to come. It is a night 8th graders may for the first time dance or perform in front of a full stadium with a packed and spirited student section. A night they can ask a high schooler anything from should I take that AP class to how heavy is that drum? A night for the first time they will trade up their mini tuba for a sousaphone with pride. A night the students of Vandegrift welcomes their brother or sister into their beloved section for just one night.
