Students orchestrate dance to benefit Northeast Arkansas Humane Society.

After brainstorming project ideas, a group of Nettleton Jr. High School 8th grade EAST students proposed the idea of hosting a dance with the proceeds going to the Humane Society.

The students met with the NJHS principal and presented their project. The principal gave them a list of "must haves" such as chaperones and security, in order for their project to be approved. The students recruited chaperones and met with the district security officer and were able to get approval for their project.

Project managers Destiny, Moria, and Kiera contacted NEA Humane Society to share their plans to raise money and awareness for their organization. The humane society gave the students a list of needed items and expressed their excitement about the proposed project.

The students contacted local DJ operators to solicit a donation of their services for the dance, and recruited a photographer for the event. They organized teams for setup, cleanup, ticket sales, ticket takers, drink sales, etc. Using Photoshop, the team created flyers to promote their event, and designed the backdrop for dance photographs.

The team raised $350 and collected several boxes of supplies requested by the humane society. Project manager Destiny said, “We put in a lot of hard work and it went great! The best part was being able to help the dogs and cats in need.“
