Fifth grade is so much fun! I'm not sure if it is that way everywhere, but at our little elementary school, 5th grade is the best! There are many special days and privileges reserved for the big kids on campus. One of my favorite 5th grade days is Retro Day!
The kids , parents, teachers and staff dress up in their best retro costume. The parents decorate the 5th grade hall with disco balls, juke boxes, an old vw bug cutout for photos, and lots of other groovy stuff!
Of course, there is a huge party with food and games and music...and each student gets a copy of the retro CD. The best part is the costume contest. Take a look at these groovy kiddos.
I even pulled out the poodle skirt I had saved from my
High School Musical "Bye Bye Birdie".
I never miss an opportunity to dress up.
These pictures were taken 4 years ago when Emily was in the fifth grade.
Jonathan is in 5th grade now....
so we are on the look out for an afro and some cool platform shoes!
