After more than a week of above-average temperatures in January, snow finally fell - almost magically - on the evening of Fawn Primary Center's first-ever Snow Fest event on January 26.
Fawn faculty and staff transformed the school into a winter wonderland, complete with an "igloo" entrance, snowflakes, snowmen and festive lighting. Designed to promote family engagement and parent involvement, the event featured five rotating activities for students and their families: Snowball Fight with fake, stuffed snowballs; Build A Snowman with craft supplies; Brain Freeze guessing game; Snowflake Scurry scavenger hunt; and create an Edible Snowman.
The event was an overwhelming success, with approximately 144 families (300+ people) in attendance. Many donated gift cards and prizes were raffled at the end of the evening. The Dohn/Woods family donated the melted snowflakes (water).
Snow Fest was spearheaded by second grade teacher Melissa McCurdy -- although the entire staff at Fawn committed to help support, plan, coordinate and facilitate the event. "I'm so blessed to work with a fantastic group of people who love and support each other and love their students," said McCurdy.
