On May 11, 2007 we had an all-school carnival. Kids were bussed in from all of our sites to participate in the fun. Mr. Frank had an enormous grill that he fired up early in the morning. He grilled a delicious assortment of hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken. Ms. Christy Rosen made sure there was a wonderful selection of music, and made sure that all the rides would arrive on time. All the sites brought amazing art posters that were hung on the outside of the school. Nurse Fran supervised the popcorn machine. The P.T.A. worked on making art and crafts visors with the children. The Speech dept. and the counselors manned the face painting and the temporary tattoo stations. Ms. Tidd handed out prizes at the fishing pool for everyone who caught a plastic fish. Mr. Edwards did the basketball free throw game with the kids. Miss Nichole Dubois handled the bean bag toss . And we had a bowling game and ring toss.
The Carnival rides came early for the younger children. We had a gigantic blow-up Titanic ride that the kids slide down. We also had an inflatable bouncy ride and a carousel. The older kids were treated to laser tag and a spiderman bouncy ride. In addition there was a mechanized crescent swing that rocked back and forth. Mr. Romero’s brother came to visit too. He is a policeman that rides a horse and the kids got to pet the horse and ask questions. The fire department showed up with one of their ladder trucks too. All in all we had a TERRIFIC TIME! Following are some comments from the student blog about the carnival:
“I like laser tag best. You had a laser gun and you get run around and you shoot people with the laser. Alot of fun. I ate a hot dog and juice. I played basket ball, bowling, the fish game and I got a tatoo. I had a good day. Oh and I loved the swing.
Have a boat races next year and different prizes.
I want to thank to all the people who work hard to make this day, especcially my para Mr. JOe because with had a good time together.”
