Jessa Kay and Susanna Ashworth from Mrs. Guffey’s room dressed up for the first sock hop/classic car show at Tryon Elementary School (TES) on Friday, March 23. Kindergarten teachers and assistants put together a display of nostalgia. Many children dressed up in poodle skirts and did the twist, the hand jive and other dances. There were hula hoop, bubble gum blowing and limbo contests. Woody Cowan combined 50s music with current songs to keep everyone entertained all evening. Food was provided by Paul Dale of Foothills Mountain Barbecue and the PTA made root beer floats. Other helpers included Melanie Jennings at Expressions Florist, Bi-Lo, Flower Cottage of Columbus, Williamson Paint Center in Landrum, the Polk County Car Club, TES PTA, TES staff, Matthew Lewis, Chris Suttles and Kevin Bruce, as well as all the parents who helped by donating items, decorating, cleaning up, etc. (photo submitted by Sue Heston)
