Yo ho, yo ho! It was a pirate’s life for everyone attending Palm Crest Elementary School’s Springamajig. The annual event, sponsored by the Palm Crest PTA, was held on the school campus last Saturday. Sea-themed moon jumps, a climbing wall, and a myriad of other games and attractions enticed both young and old landlubbers to join in the chantey. The fundraiser was the most important one of the year, as the revenue generated from the event “funds a wide range of programs at the school like reading intervention, buys computer technology and supplies for the library and classrooms, as well as office supplies,” explained Melissa Mazin, co-chair of Ways and Means, the PTA fundraising committee.

On Saturday, May 6, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Palm Crest Playground will become a Tiki village filled with sarongs and savages — also known as "our children."

When Lauren Anne Clement heard that one ofher local retailers was hosting a talent show, she felt like a longshot. The Pensacola, Fla., dance instructor hadn't competed in years, and she had less than a day to throw together a costume, find a partner, pick a song and choreograph a routine. Racing against deadline, Clement and her sister, Tori Siddall, chose the Bill Haley classic “Rock Around the Clock,” assembled 1950s-style outfits out of dresses and pearls and worked out a swing-dance duet.

Kaitzer had the flu, so I was flying solo. “The show’s only from 3 to 5,” she said. ( Yeah, that really means from 2 to 6, I thought to myself.) “But remember, you have to take Simone to a birthday party and Sabine to pizza.
