We ended with a jump rope party on February 13th and had a blast celebrating our success!

In October the Safety Patrols hosted the 1st annual Pumpkin decorating contest to help raise money for their Washington D.C. trip at the end of the school year. The students had to decorate the pumpkin as a book character instead of a plain old jack-o-lantern. We had a variety of pumpkins come in the week of the contest like minions, Mike from Monsters Inc. , Train your dragon, spider man, rainbow fish, Franklin, and many more. This was an exciting event for all the students.
