A Spring Fling

In just a few short weeks fifth graders in U. City will walk through the doors of their elementary schools as students for the last time. When the school year begins in the fall they will be middle school students at Brittany Woods.

This is a bittersweet moment for parents, but an exciting time for those pre-teens. As I overheard my daughter say to her girlfriend, "I can't wait for sixth grade. I am sooo over fifth grade."

In the spirit of celebrating their elementary years and their promotion to middle school, Jackson Park hosted its first ever "Spring Fling" for the fifth grade class.

Students arrived in festive attire (some which had been planning what to wear for weeks). One young gentleman arrived with flowers in hand for his favorite girl and the crowd erupted in screams of excitement.

All you can eat pizza, nachos, and sno cones and special cupcakes kept the group energized during the party.

In between snacking there were congo dances, line dances, limbo dancing, hula hooping, and even some break dancing face offs.

Dancing the night away!

Thank you to Bella Quintal and Stacie Foote for organizing the event. In the words of those that attended, it was "the best party ever!"
