“Love You to the Moon and Back” was the theme for this year’s Father-Daughter Dance, and the sentiment couldn’t be truer for Hartfield Academy dads and daughters. On February 7th, elementary school girls were taken out by their fathers for a night to remember.
Colbert Commons was transformed into a beautiful starry night, eliciting “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” from each of the beautifully dressed girls. Upon arrival, most daddy-daughter duos took the opportunity to have their portraits made by Hull Photography, resulting in a photo keepsake each family will surely cherish for years to come. Desserts were piled high in beautiful displays, to be enjoyed by all – which they certainly were! While some were taking photos and savoring sweets, most girls and dads rushed to the Colbert Theater, which was converted into a dance floor. The girls boogied to their favorite songs, took silly photo booth pictures together, and twirled around and around in their princess dresses. After a couple hours of dancing and enjoying time together, the evening came to a close, cementing what we hope will be life-long family memories made.
Hartfield Academy’s Father-Daughter Dance is a special tradition that is only made possible due to the hard work of the High School Student Council and their sponsor, High School Spanish teacher, Christy VanHorn. Student Council presents the Father-Daughter dance as a school community-building event that also supports their year-long service projects.
Hartfield Academy is fully accredited by both the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the MidSouth Association of Independent Schools (MAIS), the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Southern Association of independent Schools (SAIS).
