“Last year, we really didn’t know what Parent Prom was – we just made it up as we went along,” said Elizabeth McQueen, Maplewood PTA Chair, KUTX DJ and local musician. “It turned out to be so much fun, because it was rare time for the community of parents at our school to interact with each other as adults. We got to have a great time together whether people were dancing to the songs of our youth or just hanging out.”
“Last year’s event went down in history as parents came out for a rare night to themselves to enjoy a throwback to their youth, dressing up to the nines and enjoying some dancing,” said Maplewood Principal Vickie Jacobson. “The school hosted childcare while moms and dads enjoyed a nostalgic time on the dance floor and had a blast. We were thrilled with the ten thousand dollars the event raised as well, which helped the school provide technology, additional books and classroom supplies in 2016.”
“We’re able to help raise much needed funds for our school, while at the same time strengthening our ties as a community,” said McQueen. “And really, that is the best thing about Maplewood, our strong community. On top of that, we are super excited to have Cherrywood Coffeehouse on board as our Title Sponsor this year. They’ve become a central gathering place for so many of our families, and reflect the same community oriented values as our lovely school.”
“This fun and entertaining event demonstrates the positive impact of parental involvement,” said Principal Jacobson. “These events encourage parents and the community to form closer partnerships with our school, and support student learning.”
