On Saturday, October 26, the Springfield PTO held The Monster Mash Dance Bash at Springfield Elementary. The dance was well attended by over 100 students. Students and parents came out in their best costumes. The night was filled with music, dancing, cupcakes and prizes for the costume contest. Pumpkin decorating preceded the dance. The PTO would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to Clayton Heavican from Farm Bureau Financial Services in Gretna for donating 30 pumpkins for this event.
