SATURDAY – The Dance Attending school-sponsored dances is a privilege.

All non-GHS students must be pre-approved by the principal and signed up in the office the day prior to the dance. Personal identification may be requested at the door to verify age. Students who are not in good standing and /or under suspension are not allowed to attend dances. Students with overdue detentions are not in good standing. You must check, double check, and triple check that you have all your detentions served before showing up at the dance. Dance Tickets Price is $5 per person at the door. Non-GHS students must be signed up in the office by Friday at 3:15.
SATURDAY – The Dance (Again) Dress Code for Homecoming: Dress must be tasteful and appropriate. Students may not wear PE-type clothes. That means no changing into your athletic shorts and cut-up t-shirt. You need to wear your “good” clothes the entire time. Dancing Guidelines: Any dancing or behavior a chaperone judges improper and/or indecent will not be permitted. A student will be warned for inappropriate dancing. If the behavior persists, the student(s) will be asked to leave the dance.

Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat Grinnell High School's Thespian troupe #4274 is participating this year in the Educational Theatre Association's Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat program.

Thespian troupes from across the state and nation are participating in the program. Grinnell donations will be given to Mid-Iowa Community Action (MICA).
