TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI)-Students at Tupelo’s Parkway Elementary School held an old fashioned sock hop to celebrate Elvis’ birthday.The youngsters have been learning about Elvis and the contributions he made to music and modern culture, so teachers decided a sock hop would help reinforce the classroom time. “He is very important to our culture and that’s why we wanted our students to understand is how famous and important he really was, not only like I said to Tupelo, but all over,” Morgan Abraham a teacher said. Along with the sock hop, there were games and other activities for the kids and young at heart.
