What better way to break the "cabin fever of winter" than by enjoying SUMMER in February! Everyone came together to celebrate a summer day in the school gym on Feb 23rd.

There were lawn games like ladder ball, bean bag toss, even potato sac races, and the limbo. Plus it is not a party without music and face-painting and bubbles. DJ Lauren did an excellent job! Snow cones and smoothies were the drinks of choice and to "round things out" there were even instructions on how to make your very own hula hoop!
