The Charter Home Study Academy multi-purpose room was transformed into a rootin' tootin' hootenanny replete with delicious offerings from food trucks, Holy Grail BBQ, Comida Mexicana, and Cowtown Creamery.
CHSA recently hosted a family dance event that brought students, parents, and faculty members together for a night of fun-filled activities.
The event, held on March 23, featured exciting activities such as raffles, dance contests, a photo booth, and line dancing lessons. Parents and students alike enjoyed grooving to the beats of their favorite tunes and showing off their dance moves.
The highlight of the event was the dance contest, where students (and parents) competed against each other by grade level to win certificates to the book fair. The contest was judged by a panel of teachers, who evaluated the performances based on creativity and enthusiasm
The raffles also kept the excitement going, with participants eagerly waiting for their numbers to be called. Lucky winners also walked away credit to the book fair.

The photo booth was also a hit, with families posing for pictures in front of rustic backgrounds and props including real hay bales and saddles. The pictures were a perfect way to capture memories of the fun-filled evening.
In addition to the contests and raffles, the event also included line dancing lessons, which were led by a dance teacher, Carolyn Wakefield. Participants learned basic line dancing steps and enjoyed the opportunity to learn new moves.

The Charter Home Study Academy Elementary School family dance event was a great success, with families bonding over fun activities and creating lasting memories. The school's commitment to fostering a sense of community and family spirit was evident throughout the evening. In fact, the entire event was planned and put together by parents!
