Sacred Heart Catholic School held its first end-of-the-year Beach Dance Party on May 30 in the school gymnasium, with nearly 200 guests in attendance.

Event organizer and admissions director Autumne Gee was hoping for 100 guests. So when nearly twice as many showed up, she was beyond ecstatic.

“Everyone was dancing, laughing, talking and really enjoying themselves,” Gee said. “I love to see our families so happy and engaged in the spirit of the event.”

The gymnasium was transformed to fit the beach theme. This event was free to all guests who were able to enjoy pizza, sloppy Joes, fresh fruit, slushies and other snacks. Guests also could participate in a costume contest, limbo, dance train, mini beach volleyball, swinging rope and surfing photo booth area.

Gee hopes to start a new tradition of a themed end-of-the-year party to bring all families and staff together to celebrate the success of the school year, join in fellowship, have fun and laugh together.
