DD just started 5th grade which here is considered middle school and they are going to have a back to school dance. Not sure if I want to let her go or not. It is only from 4 to 6 but it is on a tuesday. What grades do your schools start having dances

The only elementary dances they had at our son's school was for teh whole family. I don't know if/when they have them here for middle school.

I don't know. Our school hasn't had any. I would just chaperone.

 Here they start in 6th grade, and are from 4-6pm as well. When I went to the same school, they were at night from 7-9pm...I wish it were still that way. There's something about the dances being at night that made them more exciting and special. The one time we had a daytime dance when I was there, it wasn't as fun. Oh well...Times change, I guess.

I will say that I was hesitant when Lexie went to her first dance. She had just turned 10--she has an Oct. bday and she skipped a grade--and I didn't know how she would do. But her bff went with her and the two girls had a blast. They haven't missed one since; there are 3 each year: Halloween, Valentine's Day, and the Spring Dance in April.

Ds1's middle school doesn't have any dances, just a party at the end of the yr for the 8th graders. 

Way back when, my Jr. High (7th- 9th gr) had some dances that were right after school.

My childrens school started dances in 6TH grade. I had a hard time letting my DD go. But, I did and she had a great time. She has her certain group of friends that she hangs around with.
