On Thursday, May 5, the crowd at Aucilla Christian Academy was rockin’ and rollin’ to the sounds of the 50’s at the 2011 May Day celebration. The performance consisted of the announcement of the May Day Court, as well as 10 dances performed by the elementary children. There was also the winding and unwinding of the May Pole, which was done by the fifth graders at ACA.
The set list included the entire group singing “Hello Muddah, Hello Fuddah,” and “What A Wonderful World.” The K4 students sang and danced to “Calendar Girl,” followed by K5 dancing to “The Twist.”
This was followed by the first graders dancing to, “Do Wah Diddy.” The second grade then performed “Splish, Splash.” The multi-age class then sang “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie, Woogie Flu.” The third graders followed this by performing “Do You Love Me?” The fourth graders then sang “Rockin’ Robin,” followed by the fifth graders winding and unwinding the May Pole.
