Sock Hop Combines Exercise and Fun
Sock Hop Combines Exercise and Fun

The gymnasium was filled with 1950s jukebox music as the kindergarten and first grade students at James Cole Elementary danced, hula-hooped, and had lots of fun at the recent Sock Hop. The kindergarten and first grade teachers offered this event in place of a traditional Valentine's Party. Students had a chance to test their skills at hoola hoops, rope jumping, race at a cruise-in with tiny toy cars, create art, test their skills at hopscotch, have their image captured in the photo booth, and enjoy a root beer float. The students were very involved in this event - most dressed in poodle skirts or t-shirts, rolled up jeans, and sunglasses. Parent volunteers were everywhere - offering assistance and support while making this event possible. The sock hop encouraged movement and downplayed the traditional large amounts of sugared snacks at a traditional Valentine's party. Many memories were made during the Sock Hop. Next year, instead of a sock hop, the teachers plan a "Fairy Tale Ball".
