This Friday February 3rd is the Silverado PE department's annual "Black Tie and Tennies" ballroom dance during each PE period.  This day is the day that we use all the dances we have learned this past month in a fun, in class, ballroom dance setting.  We encourage (but do not require) each student to dress up in either a 1950's style outfit, or in formal dress attire to make the day more festive. If a student does not dress up they must change into their regular PE clothes. We do require that all students wear tennis shoes because of the wooden gym floor.  All outfits must meet the Silverado school dress code.
