What is The Sweetheart Dance? 

The Sweetheart Dance is your chance to dance the night away with your special little sweetheart! This event is a student & parent (or other caring adult) dance, open to all VPE students in grades K through 5.


Who can attend?

We cordially invite all VPE students, grades K through 5th, along with at least one caring adult. Because we want to make this a special and unique event for you and your student, younger/older siblings who are not enrolled at VPE will not be admitted.

No. A parent or other adult MUST remain with the student at the event. This is not a "drop-off" dance.

Yes! Dinner, desserts, and drinks are all included in the ticket price. Dinner will consist of a Taco Bar, catered by Hy-Vee. No alcohol will be served at this event.
