Semi-Formal Postponed to March 3

Jamesville-DeWitt High School's Semi-Formal Dance was postponed to Saturday, March 3. Originally set for Jan. 13, the dance was rescheduled after an unexpected winter storm hit Syracuse with a foot of snow last week. 

For the 80 students that already purchased their tickets, senior class advisor Michael Keenan directs students to "hold onto their tickets until March." If you have purchased a ticket, but now cannot attend on the new date, see Mr. Keenan for a refund. Ticket sales will resume in February for $10 during the lunch pre-sale or $15 at the door.

The Bust-a-Move Club and the Class of 2018, are co-hosting J-DHS’s annual Semi-Formal Dance. This is the first dance of the year and this event is the only of its kind, as the only school dance open to all J-DHS students. Semi also serves as a fundraiser for the groups hosting it. Freshmen through seniors are invited to attend the dance on Saturday from 7 to 10 pm. Tickets are $10 and are sold during lunches this week or they are $15 at the door.

With every major school-wide event comes some conflict, and the annual Semi-Formal is no exception. Each year there are conflicts that the hosts have to consider when picking a date for the dance. Some members of the Boys' Varsity Swimming team will be at their state meet on Long Island on March 3.
