At the hop

Third-graders Kieley Thomas and Brennan Palmieri dance at a hop held for K-5 students at the Haines School elementary gym recently. A first-time event, the dance was held in lieu of a spring show. Parents were invited and joined students on the dance floor. Classes learned different dances, including line dances like "The Locomotion." "It was a hoot," said teacher Barbara Pardee.
