More than 300 parents, teachers and supporters of La Jolla Elementary School (LJES) busted their best disco moves during a sold-out gala on March 16, 2013 at the Cuvier Club in La Jolla. A fundraiser for Friends of La Jolla Elementary School, Inc., the event featured music from Polyester Express and silent and live auctions that included everything from a trip to Hawaii to the chance for one lucky LJES student to become “principal for a day.”

Event Chair and LJES parent Angela Goodwin took guests back in time to the ’70s with swinging, retro décor, while music teacher Julie Greathouse led LJES teachers in a rendition of the disco hit “I Will Survive,” renamed “Your Kids Will Survive” — an homage to all parents do for the school. Alexa Scoma and Sharon Jones filmed a video of students showing their gratitude in a multitude of ways.
