Student News from the Extended Day Program
On Friday the after-school grade 4-8 students were treated by Mr. Jacoby and Mr. Cook to a Halloween extravaganza. All of the students won prizes ...skeleton rings, spiders, Halloween stamps, bat necklaces, double eye rings... which students had to find by tacking prizes hidden in balloons. Then students tossed plastic barbed rings over witch's hats to win tootsie pops for the highest score. Each week FUN FRIDAY ACTIVITIES include a homework period, fun indoor and gym activities, and, if the weather is good, a break outside. ..WHAT WILL NEXT WEEK BRING?
