The Jefferson City Public Schools Foundation's ninth annual Princess and Papa dances will take place this spring.
The dances are a time for JCPS elementary-aged female students in grades K-5 and their fathers, grandfathers, uncles or other special men in their lives to enjoy an afternoon of activities including crafts, nail painting, enjoying cookies and punch, and dancing, according to a news release from the JCPS Foundation.
Photographers will be available to take a picture of each girl with her plus-one. Pictures are printed the day of the event for each family to keep as a souvenir.
Students from Belair, Lawson, Pioneer Trail, South and West elementary schools are invited to attend the dance March 17 at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.
Another dance will be held at Lewis and Clark Middle School on April 14 for students who attend North, Callaway Hills, East, Moreau Heights and Cedar Hill elementary schools.
Thorpe Gordon Elementary students are invited to attend either dance. Both dances will take place 2-4 p.m. at each location.
The foundation requests only JCPS princesses and their papas attend, due to space restrictions.
The cost of the event is $20, which includes one princess and one papa. Admission of each additional princess and papa is $10 each.
This year, the foundation is offering online registration options through MIDMOTIX.com. Registration forms also can be obtained through the offices of each JCPS elementary building.
