Labor Day Carnival
By Dani R.
The summer concluded with a tremendous splash—in the dunk tank.
The weekend was jam-packed with activities, including an outdoor showing of The Hunger Games. Students huddled under the stars, ate gourmet popcorn, and watched the Games on a huge inflatable screen. Inside, kids were strapped and ready for battle—Laser Tag in the gym. Betton Houser, Matt S, (code name Viper 400) was ecstatic, “Laser Tag is always my favorite activity because it is so intense. I got serious.”
Labor Day however, was when the real festivities happened. Even a cold, rainy day couldn’t even stop what was coming. Activities coordinator Paul Geer and his diligent crew organized an unforgettable weekend— the Family School had a carnival. The gym was almost unrecognizable with an inflatable boxing ring, music, hotdogs, snow cones, cotton-candy, a dunk-tank, a bouncy house, games, and prizes. What really made it a party, though, were the students. It was awesome to see the whole student body in the gym, smiling, laughing, playing—or even snuffing each other in the bouncy ring. “This was actually the best Labor Day I’ve ever had.” said Rachael D.
