On June 3, North Elementary celebrated the end of the school year with a picnic for its kindergarten class. Thirty-six students participated in the picnic, which is a long-standing tradition at the school.
The students participated in a variety of activities, including corn hole, an obstacle course, relay races, bingo, visor making, parachute and side walk chalk. They also ate pizza, chips and popsicles.
“We had a lot of fun, and we enjoyed spending time together,” said kindergarten teacher Kirsten Jacobs. “It was nice just to see the kids playing and interacting with each other in a way that we don’t do in the classroom on a daily basis.”
Fellow kindergarten teacher Kendra Gura agreed, saying, “I thought it was a wonderful day.”
Kindergarten students Peyton Miller and Delaney Svatosky said they both enjoyed the day’s activities.
“We got to have lunch in our classroom,” Peyton said.
“It was the best day ever!” Delaney said.
