Cooleemee Elementary School’s gym was popping with vibrations of music, twirling, jumping and laughter as students celebrated Valentines Day.

Hot pizza was brought in and boy did it smell good.  Candy and snacks were available for the students to purchase as they went through the line to pick up a slice of pepperoni pizza.

It’s so much fun watching girls and boys roam around the room with uninhibited manners. Two boys said they were having a good time just walking around and talking to each other. Girls danced in a circle, held hands and twirled in their pretty dresses. It sent the message they were happy and joyful.

Some fifth graders felt awkward and were bored.  I reminded them  next year they will be with the older kids when they go to middle school and their faces lit up.

Thank you teachers and volunteers for giving the students another event to create more memories that they will remembered for a lifetime.
