Fourth- and fifth-graders ran circles around each other hula hooping while they danced at the annual BRE Sock Hop. While no 50s or 60s music played, the kids twirled to the music of Juice Wrld and Fall Out Boy, among other new artists. Fifth-grade teacher Mrs. Parker was rocking with the students to “Macarena” and other favorite line dances. The kids were thrilled to take a break to enjoy root beer floats and other goodies. Many of the girls dressed in 50s fashion and a few guys had the old school white T-shirt and jeans. The kids jumped, jived and participated in a Hula Hoop contest. It was a fun night for all.
