Lower School Students Rock Around (Part of) the Clock

DSC_2461 On March 7, students in grades 4–6 called on their inner “greasers” and “bobby soxers” and danced the evening away at a sock hop and ice cream social hosted by Ross Lower School Parents Association. The LS Field House was festooned with streamers and ’50s-style decorations, and the kids were resplendent in leather jackets and poodle skirts. Chris Engel, director of Community Programs, reigned as DJ, starting off with classics from the golden age of rock ’n’ roll and progressing to more modern tunes like “Cotton-Eyed Joe” and “Gangnam Style.” The enthusiastic dancing was fueled by pizza and ice cream sundaes served up by parent volunteers. The evening came to a close with a dance contest that turned into a trivia contest, with a jukebox-shaped piñata at stake. The 6th graders pulled out a victory with an elaborate answer to the final question, and claimed their candy-filled prize on Monday at school.
