Fall Festival

Last Friday night was Fall Festival at school. This is a large event that draws many families into the school with their student(s) for an evening of fun social activities. The evening began with carnival games for the kids. Here I am running the mini-golf game. Some of my fifth grade students dropped by to say hi and pose for a picture.

This was my second post for the evening - a game called Blow 'N' Go. Students raced to blow their ping-pong ball across the finish line before their competitors. The kids loved this game and quite a few came to play even after the prizes were all gone. One of the most exciting parts of this game was watching the players dodge people who happened to step out of the bathrooms in the frenzy of a race. The hallway location may not have been ideal, but the kids took on the extra challenge like pros.

Fall Festival concluded with choral performances by the elementary, middle-school, and high-school choirs. One of my favorite pieces was "All Things Bright and Beautiful", sung by the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.
