BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The scene was set for a memorable night at the MKM Sweetheart Dance last Friday. Love was in the air and Timber, in his bowtie and "tails," once again, was the "sweetheart" of the ball.

The event was hosted by MKM PTO and included a DJ, dinner, dessert, a photo booth, as well as other fun activities. Smiles were everywhere and memories will be treasured  by all who attended. The dance was for pre-K through first grade students and their moms, dads or adult of their choice. The event sold out for the second year and is the do-not-miss tradition for years to come.

Each student and their "date" could pose in front of the paper heart backdrop before entering through the red and pink balloon towers that led to the gymnasium turned-dance floor. The girls twirled in their dresses and boys ran around to the music while parents mingled and danced with their "sweethearts." There were lines to enter the photo booths for group photos with props and silly poses.

The parents and guests couldn't help but smile all night and enjoy this magical moment with their children.
