Wolfpit Elementary School put on a rocking country jamboree for its parents and grandparents on Friday. As part of Wolfpit Day, the Norwalk school's annual end-of-the-year tradition, the students put on cowboy hats, boots and bandanas and crooned songs such as "Summertime Blues," "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" and "Sweet Home, Alabama." And they showed off their fancy footwork in numbers such as "Hoedown Throwdown."
The first song of the day, however, was for Grandparents Day, which the school celebrates on Wolfpit Day.
The field behind the school was filled with adults on picnic blankets and camp chairs, enjoying the show and the beautiful weather. Several school and city officials also attended, including Mayor Richard Moccia and Superintendent Susan Marks.
After the morning show, the students ate lunch with their families, enjoyed snow cones and lemonade and had a mini-fair in the gym with carnival games. An all-day student art show decorated the front entrance.
Fifth-grader Sarah Arena was feeling bittersweet about her last Wolfpit Day. "It's definitely one of my favorite days. It's always exciting, but this year I'm sad because were are leaving Wolfpit."
