On April 24th the CTA Elementary hosted a masquerade themed daddy daughter dance.  As the girls walked in with their Dads their faces light up as they saw the beautiful decorated dance.  Purple, green and gold streamers surrounded the dance floor while great center pieces were on each table.  At the entrance the girls were greeted with a wide variety of mask to adorn their face.  The girls came in their finest dresses while their Dad’s came in handsome suits and dress clothes to escort their daughters to the dance.  There were many activities for the girls to do including decorating pictures, going to take a picture at the photo area, enjoying a delicious dessert and most importantly dancing the night away with their Dads.  There were lots of smiles, laughing and dancing by all who came.
