Fall Dance 2015
Here at Hughes, you may know we have two school dances every year. The first and the best dance of the year, the Fall Dance, is right around the corner. The dance takes place on October 23 and cost three dollars to get in. There are refreshments such as popcorn, chicken and cookies, as well as, and drinks like lemonade at the dance. A DJ will be on the stage pumping some hype tunes. Lately, the eighth-grade attendance has been low with dances, so come on out and represent! Be sure to bring your friends to share the good times with. It’s always more fun with friends.The dances are always fun, the food is always tasty, and the songs are always fantastic!

Relay for Life
Hughes Academy just signed up for a really important event. We're going to be walking around, enjoying music and games, hanging out with a great community of people, all while making a difference in the fight against cancer.
Doesn't that sound great?
We're supporting the American Cancer Society and participating in Relay For Life®. We would love for you to join our team. Every Relay For Life event is a time for family and friends to honor cancer survivors, remember those lost to this disease, and raise funds and awareness to help end cancer forever.
By joining our Relay For Life team and helping us fundraise, more people in more communities:
- Have the information and tools they need to avoid getting cancer or find the disease early, when it's easiest to treat
- Have a place to turn for help 24/7 online at cancer.org or by calling 1.800.227.2345
- Benefit from the progress being made toward finding cancer's causes and cures
- Get access to lifesaving screenings and treatment
Too many people will be touched by cancer this year. Relay For Life events are our opportunity to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease. We hope you will join us and PAINT YOUR WORLD PURPLE!
