The school year is rapidly coming to a close and School Street Elementary School has a number of activities for their students and their parents. One such activity is the annual Family Picnic hosted by School Street Elementary. The picnic took place late Thursday Afternoon at the Callahan Park Pavilion. The annual Family Picnic has been going on for more then ten years. This is the second year that the Elementary school has used the Callahan Park Pavilion. Heidi Blatchley is the Assistant Principal at School Street Elementary School. We caught up with her serving food along with other School Street Elementary staff at Thursday’s event.
Parents and students were treated to hamburgers and hot dogs, a bag of chips, bottled water and a piece of decorated cake. According to Mrs. Blatchley, about 400 parents and students sign up to part in yesterday’s picnic. Students were also able to put their name in for a special drawing to win books and educational games. On Friday the 4th grade students will take part in a safety program, while the 5th grade students will be learning about health and wellness.
