All girls in grades PreK-4 are invited to Shaker’s Sweetheart Dance from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, February 16 at Shaker Heights Middle School. The dance, now in its fifth year, is the brainchild of Lomond parents and District Family Liaison Billie Morgan.

Girls are welcomed to attend with their fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, male cousins, family friends or any other adult special male. Tickets are $20/couple and $10 for each additional child. Photographs and corsages can be purchased for an additional fee. The price includes pizza, drinks, ice cream, cookies and a small party favor.
Ms. Billie splits all proceeds from the dance among each elementary school. Last year, each K-4 building received $1,000.
“It really is a special event. I even have dads who are out of town call ahead and ask me to hold a spot for them,” says Ms. Billie. “For the fourth graders, it brings together a whole era. I’m just so excited that we can do something special like this for our girls.”
