Tutus and Ties 2014

tt1Yes, our PTO moms have topped last year’s highly successful annual Tutus and Ties Event at LME with even more this year!  From the stunning decorations, red carpet, top tunes, and 100s of colorful tt2balloons, to the scrumptious food, fun, dancing, and friendly fellowship…truly and simply extraordinary indeed.

tt3Special thanks to our creative PTO Board of dedicated moms with great vision and insight who lead the with grace, style, and great humor.  They spent the better part of Friday evening and all day today attending to the details of this enormous undertaking.  Thanks to the moms, grandmas, staff members, and other volunteers who worked the event (and clean up) tt4so our dads, grandfathers, uncles, and brothers can give their undivided attention to the young ladies who brought them.

It’s such a pleasure to be a part of a learning organization where our parents are our partners and actively participating members of all we do—during school hours and well beyond.  Tutus and Ties 2014…a true Red Carpet Affair!

Tutus and Ties…oh my!

Tutus and Ties…oh my!

DSCF5398_00083Chivalry is alive and well in MISD…just ask anyone who attended PTO’s Tutus and Ties Event:  A Night In Paris!  This annual event, created by some wonderful moms wanting to promote special daddy-daughter time at school, goes above and beyond to create an evening to truly treasure.  From the dresses to the suits, girls and the significant males in their lives (be it dads, grandfathers, uncles, older brothers, or friends) DSCF5338_00035spend a extraordinary evening dancing with a live DJ, noshing on divine refreshments (from chocolate fountains, cupcake trees, and other “tea party” eats), taking pictures, sharing flowers, and enJOYing the company of others.  Participants are greeted as they walk the pink carpet into a transported Miller hallway and cafe.  The festive atmosphere (each year has a unique theme) sets the tone for a wonderfully spectacular evening of fun and fellowship making lasting memories together.

DSCF5344_00040Special thanks to our PTO Board and Volunteers for the hours of designing, planning, preparation, decoration, and food donations.  Specifically, thanks to Nicole and Gayle, partners in cleverness, for annually co-chairing this treasured tradition at LME!

…and just so you know we have equal opportunities for our LME boys, get ready for the annual Boys’ Night Out Event coming in April for guys and their moms (or other significant females).  It’s always a rowdy fun time for all!    🙂
