Girls dress up and enjoy night with role model

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Young girls got to dress up and enjoy a night out with their dad or another male role model Tuesday night.

"It's a great way to bring them to school and just have a good time," Mitzi Young said. 'It's always good to make education fun."

Nettleton University Heights Elementary school hosted their annual Fancy Nancy Date Night.

The girls ranged from kindergarten through 2nd grade.

"It's always important to tie home and school together," Young said. "We love having our parents involved so this has been a great chance to get our dads and other important role models involved in our little girl's school."

The girls danced, made crafts and enjoyed snacks.

The date night doubled as a literacy event.
