Hillcrest Cotillion is fancy and fun

Nov 15th, 2012

LAKE WALES – Hillcrest Elementary’s Cotillion for fifth grade students was a fancy and fun affair with white tablecloths, proper place settings, formal dance steps … and some line dancing!

The Cotillion followed eight weeks of etiquette classes, which were provided as part of the school’s Positive Behavior Support program. The Cotillion gave students a chance to practice table manners, conversation skills and other etiquette lessons.

The event was help at HighPoint Church; parent-volunteers dressed in black and white acted as servers. Students wore fancy clothes, and enjoyed salad and spaghetti for lunch before hitting the dance floor.
