January Jam

Every mid-January, when the winter blues set in, the cold rain keeps the students indoors, and the short days start to take their toll, Elizabeth's school hosts the most popular fundraiser of the year, the January Jam.  For 2 1/2 hours after school on a Friday, parents can get extra errands done, have some quiet time to themselves, or volunteer to tend the snack table at the Jam, while their children dance their little hearts out.  As soon as school starts back following winter break, Elizabeth starts looking forward to January Jam.  She gets 2 1/2 uninterrupted hours to spend with her friends, being crazy, expending pent-up energy, and being her social-butterfly self.

January Jam 2009

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, 
Childe Harold's Pilgrimage
