Students in grades UPK-third danced the night away, snacked on cookies and other goodies, and had a great time in the first unified elementary school winter dance.

The Snow Ball, a tradition at Altmar Elementary School for many years, is just one of the events that were redeveloped in the combined elementary building for the students and their families.

Students in grades 4-6 will also had a special dance when they hold a “glow in the dark dance.”

Altmar parents were pleased to see the continuation of the Snow Ball in the elementary school and Parish parents enjoyed the new activity as well.

The APW Elementary School Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) sponsored the event which featured tables set up around the perimeter of the gymnasium for families to sit and rest while their child(ren) enjoyed the dance.

A guest DJ was on hand and played student favorites including the popular “Casper Slide” and “Gangnam Style.”
