PR-B students were Dancing their Socks Off!


Pine River-Backus Elementary School students danced in their socks on Thursday, Feb. 28. By practicing the ROAR (Responsible, On-Task, Always Safe, Respectful) expectations, students earned enough Tiger Tickets to fill up the Tiger Ticket jar. All staff and students had a schoolwide Sock Hop to celebrate. Dances included “The Locomotion,” “The Chicken Dance” and the “Macarena.”
