Mohonasen PTSO hosts dodgeball tournament

While the event was competitive, the four impromptu teams mostly came to the tournament to have fun, said Glasser.

"The kids like playing dodgeball in gym class, so we thought they might like to play here tonight," said Glasser.

The PTSO sold refreshments at the tournament to raise funds for their Afterglow and Teen Town programs.

The Afterglow program is the PTSO's after-prom event, which runs from midnight to 4 a.m. each year. The goal of Afterglow is to provide a safe and fun environment to students.

The popular Teen Town program gives Draper Middle School students a fun night out where they can socialize with friends in a well-supervised setting. Teen Towns are held at the middle school, usually twice a month.

At Teen Town, students can dance to music provided by a disc jockey in the school cafeteria, play basketball in the gym, and play foosball, pool and air hockey. Pizza, soda and other snacks are sold throughout the night.

There is a $3 fee to attend Teen Town. The next Teen Town event will be held Friday, Feb. 15, at Draper Middle School from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.""
