FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - Mrs. Beth Carpenter and Mrs. Jillian Hurtt’s first grade classes hosted a ‘Royal Ball’ at the Florence Palace on Center Street. Many royal family members attended the ball including Prince Preston and Duchess Savannah and of course our very own Queen Elizabeth, known as Beth at Florence Elementary.
The classes completed a unit on fairy tales and fiction, analyzing either make believe or fact, then writing an opinion piece. The unit theme was ‘Around the world with a glass slipper’.
The two classes danced the day away starting with a curtsy from the girls and a bow from the boys. The couples moved in slow motion so elegantly, across the royal ball room floor, twirling their partner with great ease. Our royal families dressed in many fashionable styles ranging from a top hat and shorts to looking like a prince. Tea and crumpets (juice and cookies) was served to refresh our hungry and thirsty dancers.
