The party at Union Elementary on Feb. 23 was evident in the thump of music blasting through the school’s auditorium and the movement of dancing feet.
Carrie Ogden, who planned the event on behalf of the PTO, wanted to make sure the focus of the Feb. 23 Dad-Daughter Dance at Union was the dancing.
“Everyone loves a party and we wanted to host a great one. It’s nice to give dads and daughters some one-on-one time with each other,” said Ogden.
The PTO offered a complimentary family photo for dads and their daughters and the families traveled to Union’s art room to decorate a frame for their photos.
Joe Pecoraro, who attended the event with his daughters Hannah and Stella, said he loves spending quality time with his daughters.
“We go on dad-daughter dates every weekend. I’m trying to prepare them for the years ahead and tell them that boys should be polite and caring, like their dad. I’m glad that we get to spend more quality time together today as well,” Pecoraro said.
Dad Tom Toctor echoed the same sentiment with his daughter, Avery.
“We take plenty of time out for just us, but the PTO is doing a great job of making it special,” Toctor added.
After crafts and photos, the families visited the school’s auditorium and the dance floor. The group was entertained with a mix of modern hits and favorites from the past to please young and old.
Jef Davis shared laughs with his kindergartner Loukia as they jumped up and down during the Isley Brother’s hit, “Shout.”
“I think there are lessons to be learned on the dance floor. I try and show Loukia that you don’t have to be polished, you just have to enjoy yourself out there,” Davis said of their dance moves.
