Alice Smith girls put on their poodle skirts and tied bows in their hair Thursday, while the boys slicked back their hair and donned white T-shirts and cuffed jeans. The retro styles were part of the school’s Valentine’s Day Sock Hop.
The dance was a part of the ongoing commemoration of Alice Smith’s 60-year anniversary. Since the school started in 1952, students celebrated by dancing in the styles of the era. A dance instructor taught them The Twist, Hand Jive, Conga and more.
