As Belle Terre Elementary school girls ran around the dance floor in colorful dresses, many would stop in front of their father just long enough for him to film a short clip of his little girl twirling around with a tiara on her head. After all, she's his princess.
Fathers, father-figures and daughters gathered at the school's Ties and Tiaras dance on the evening of Friday, Feb. 8, for a night to remember. With a meal and drinks catered by Golden Carol and Sunny's BBQ, families filled up then hit the dance floor in the cafeteria.
Second-grade teacher Karen Gargon said they sold about 350 tickets at $15 each to benefit the second grade, who hosted the event. The money will go toward class field trips, like an upcoming one to an alligator farm.
"The girls get so excited just to spend time with their dads," she said, watching all the duos dance around.
A photo booth with props added entertainment, as Principal Dr. Terence Culver snapped photos for the families to make the memories last.
