The girls of Dobbins Elementary School, clad in 1950s attire, brought their dads out for a “Night at the Hop” Feb. 18.

The annual father-daughter event, sponsored by the Dobbins’ Parent Teacher Organization, featured dancing and musical entertainment by local DJ “The Music Man.”

The cafeteria was transformed into The Dobbins Diner, and students and their fathers enjoyed a light dinner, as well as cookies and root beer floats from The Sweets Shop.

The PTO, chaired by Karla Galla, served the guests as the girls took part in rock n’ roll dances and games.

Fathers and their daughters also had the opportunity to have photos taken, which were put in personalized frames.

“The evening was such a memorable event for each of the girls and their special dates,” Cheryl Borovitcky, the school’s principal, said.
