We were extremely thrilled to have held first annual SW PTO Father Daughter Dance Friday night!

The dance was a tremendous success and we raised over $1,300 for our Sussex-Wantage students.

This was truly a COMMUNITY event!!!

We couldn’t have done this without the following people:

Thank you to the  Sussex Fire Department and to the McKay family for the Hall donation. Without you we couldn’t have had such overwhelming success without the use of your firehouse, and for this we are truly grateful.

Thank you to DJ Ray Cordts for coming and spinning the tunes that kept everyone on their feet dancing for hours.

Thank you to Mrs. Hageman and her family for providing the back drop for our photo booth.

Thank you to Grace Musilli for running our photo booth.

Thank you to Lorenzo’s Pizza for always accommodating our events.

Thank you to Kinnelon Stop and Shop for donating snacks and beverages.

Thank you to all of the crafty Sussex-Wantage students and teachers who created the decorations and centerpieces that really turned the Sussex Firehouse into a magical night.

Thank you to our anonymous donor for the carnations.

Thank you to Mrs. Schneider, Miss Preston, Mrs. Slockbower, Mrs. Sparta, Mrs. Hocko, Mrs Marangi,  Mrs. Beauchamp, Mrs. Lain, Mrs. Cordts, Gianna Marangi, Michael Barbieri, and Samantha Glanville, for donating your time and working hard to ensure that everything ran smoothly on the night of the dance.

Thank you to the SW PTO Executive Board for being supportive in this endeavor and to a small but amazing team of moms, dads, and teachers – Lori Luberger, Kelly Flynn, Jess Musilli, Lucia Stephenson, Diane Barbieri, Cindy Tiger, Sara Maas and Stacey Miller – who worked countless hours to bring it all together.
Without you this would not have happened.

And to anyone else we may have forgotten, thank you.

On behalf of The Sussex-Wantage Parent Teacher Organization we look forward to more family/community event successes ahead, including an amazing Mother and Son event coming soon.

With Sincere Gratitude,
