Sharing the love, students and their fathers attend AME’s first Valentine’s Day celebration and father-daughter dance Feb. 15 at the AME auditorium.

Anna Maria Elementary School principal David Marshall doesn’t yet have a viral hit on YouTube or a hit song on iTunes, but he has hit a homerun with his idea to host a father-daughter dance for the young female students at the school.

And don’t worry, a mother-son dance is yet to come.

The Valentine’s Day Father-Daughter Dance Feb. 15 was well attended and it seemed everyone had a great time dancing, enjoying the music and refreshments and celebrating one another’s company.

The dance — at the invitation of teachers, staff and Marshall at AME’s auditorim — was open to a “daughter,” according to AME parent Karen Riley-Love, who attended to take both candid photographs for the school as well as for The Islander, and “the special man in their lives — dad, father, uncle, grandfather.”

Music was provided by AME parent Chris Grumley, a professional at the DJ mic, and corsages and couple photos were offered for sale. The event was free.
