From a peaceful area with art-based activities and games, to a DJ and dance floor, a bean bag toss and basketball, the occasion had something for everyone.

“Our Annual Socials provide students with opportunities to build their interpersonal skills, cultivate positive relationships, and practice face-to-face communication absent of cell phones,” said Farragut Middle School Principal Jennifer Spirelli. “Overall, they have brought lots of joy to our students.”
