Sodas, Classic Cars, and a Sock Hop…

PTO…our Parent Teacher Organization…lifeline of our campus everyday.  I don’t want to imagine having school without this group!  For our first Family Night Event this year, we kicked it off tonight with a Back-To-School Sock Hop…what a GREAT evening of fun and fellowship!  Every type of music from 50’s classics to present-day group dances was cleverly spun for fun in the gym with colored lights shining.  Students shared dance moves, taught the adults some new steps, and shared a few laughs (at my expense, of course).  One friend noted, “Mrs. Van, you’ve got the moves but they just need some adjusting at your age.”  🙂

We also enjoyed touring outside the cafe and talking with owners of several classic cars who participated this evening with us.  Of course, several of our dads laid claim to knowing a bit about these vehicles so we tested their knowledge (and that of each owner) with a few questions just to verify.  As one young friend noted, “What a bunch of sweet rides!”  🙂

Several PTO volunteers and parents spent countless hours organizing, planning, decorating, checking everyone in, serving soda floats, dancing, and laughing with friends.  Our active PTO Board Members this year are:  Angela Shaver, Gayle Turner, Nicole Blackmon, Wendy Harvey, Christie Clenney, Amanda Fisher, Amy Byers, Tracy Brown, Beth Woodall, Tami Tobey, Lori Walk, Stacy Moore-Helms, Keisha Buchanan, and Heather Cooper.  Please watch the PTO website @ http://www.millerpto.com and “like” it on Facebook (LaRue Miller PTO) for updates and information throughout the year. Ladies, you really rocked this whole experience!

Family events such as tonight bring our entire learning community together to relax, enjoy, and celebrate.  Our thanks to everyone to assisted, who attended, and who chose to spend a glorious autumn evening here at LaRue Miller Elementary!
