The "Welcome Back To School Dance"

Hello future readers!

Well, yesterday was our first annual "Welcome Back to School" dance. After I got out of school  at 3p.m. I went home, had an early dinner, took a bath, and changed my clothes so I could make it back to school at 5 in time for the dance. The gym looked really groovy. The teachers did a good job decorating it. Miss LaSalle, Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Taylor were in charge of the snacks, music and keeping us kids in line!








It was really far out! Miss LaSalle put on a record and everyone got up and boogied! And Jason is a dynamite dancer! He was spinning around and showing off his moves!











The music was outta site! Miss LaSalle really knows her stuff! She played  The Jackson 5, Elton John, K.C. & The Sunshine Band, The Sylvers, The Ohio Players, The Hues Corporation, David Cassidy (yay!) and Jason and Danny's favorite "Kung Fu Fighting" by Carl Douglass.










We had lotsa  punch and cookies and chips, 'cos dancing really works up an appetite! Even the teachers got up and danced! All right!













Everyone had a super time! Before we knew it, it was was 7 o'clock, and it was time to go home.  I never wanted the dance to end. I think there's a song on one of those old movies on TV that says, "I could have danced all night", and I could have too! I hope the school has another dance soon, 'cos it's so much fun! Do people still dance in the future? Jason thinks people wear "anti-gravity boots" and just float around the room. I don't think that would be much fun. How could you spin around, and do "The Bump"? That's my favorite dance. After I got home, I even played school dance with my dolls!  They like to "bump", too! Gotta go, now!

Until next time, future readers,
Your friend,
Julie Newman

    1. *giggle* I think Miss LaSalle is the one who went to the Mad Platter and bought all the records. I don't think she bought any Bay City Rollers, but I'll let her know someone likes them!

  2. awesome. I almost broke my leg today while doing a photoshoot. Ya see, I was allowing Kirsten and Felicity to clib a tree outside. Kirsten got herself stuck and could not get down so I had to get her and on the way down the tree a branch broke on me and Kirsten and I almost broke my leg. I will post the photo story later .

    1. *gasp* Since I'm only 9 and in the 4th grade, I don't think my teacher would buy a record with any bad words in it!

    3. Um...no...hard rock and roll really isn't our scene. We listen to pop, easy rock, soul, dance music, that kind of thing.

  8. Hi Julie,
    I do most of my dancing at weddings and some popular group dances are the Electric Slide and the Macarana. Sometimes we even do silly dances like the Hokey Pokey or the Chicken Dance.
    I love Mrs. Johnson's lacey dress.
    Your future friend,
    Fawn

    1. Grown-ups do the Hokey Pokey at weddings? HAHAHA! That's pretty funny! I haven't heard of those other dances, but I'm glad people actually still dance in the future, and don't float around like Jason said.
