Glow Dance THANK YOU!
Thank you to all who volunteered to help Roosevelt have another successful Glow Dance. From helping with greeting families with glow swag to manning craft and photo area stations to chaperoning the dance floor, it takes a village so again thank you. Also shout to the parents/adult chaperones who came rocking in their 80’s wear – it was totally rad! Lastly, thank you to 5th grade promotion committee for organizing our concessions!

Finally, the PTA would like to extend a BIG thank you to Liz McCabe for chairing the event this year, and for the past several years! We are looking for a new chair or a few who are willing take over the glow dance next year! Please let us know if you are interested or have any questions.
