Pelham Middle School Gym– Friday Night Live is one of the most exciting events a sixth grader will go to in their first year of middle school. But it can be a parent’s most dreaded night of their child’s life when the realize that their child is growing up.

But that sappy stuff is only in movies and TV shows.

Friday Night Live is a time for sixth graders to hangout with their friends, dance, and play basketball. Now some people did end up accompanying each other to the dance, but only as friends. Don’t worry parents, your children aren’t dating right away; it is only a test trial.

The dance costed $5 and all the food costed $1 each. The gym was split in half. One side had basketball hoops and basketballs open, and the other side had the DJ and dancing. The DJ was an amazing Pelham dad who volunteered. Most people interviewed thought the night was amazing. Lucy Dolan said “I loved Friday Night Live, I had so much fun dancing with my friends and playing basketball. It was my first dance I had no idea of what to expect but it was all I wanted and more”. Lucy Dolan said she also thought that there should be a theme. She had many ideas of what it should be including Under the Sea, Harry Potter and the 80’s. Jacquelyn Pennetta said “My overall experience at Friday Night Live was AMAZING!!! My favorite part of Friday Night Live was probably all of the dancing. I spent my night doing both basketball and dancing. My exceptions were not as high as I expected to be but it was still amazing. I think if I could change one thing about Friday Night Live it would be to move it outside when it’s not as cold. I can’t wait till the next Friday Night Live and I definitely plan to go because it was amazing. I do think that there should be at theme at Friday Night Live because it would be even more amazing! On top of all the amazing features of Friday Night Live the food was great! I loved the music because it was so loud and exciting.”  Now last but not least, Vincent Salerno had some views on Friday Night Live.”Overall the dance was fun” he said “ The best part was the dance circles, most of my night was spent playing basketball and watching people dance. The dance was exactly how I wanted it to be”. Overall, Friday Night Live was a big hit and if your 6th grader didn’t go to this one there are still two more this year.
