On November 2, the sixth grade class held a Fall Fun Friday for the elementary school. They planned for a busy day, but before any of it could happen, they had to prepare. The class all helped to build and set up for the day, whether it was to write nametags or cut out pumpkins. The one thing they did not want to happen was to make it boring.
Dividing themselves up, some led kids around and some stayed at different locations. They had a few games in the gym: fishing, sweep the pumpkin, pumpkin toss, blow the car, and a pumpkin walk. There were other sections like a snack stop and a hayride.
The class tried to make the day about the younger classes, “This day isn’t about us; it’s about the elementary kids,” said Ashlyn Vosika. Giving the next year’s class some advice, the sixth graders commented to make sure everything is finished before Fun Friday, participate in everything, and play with the kids. They decided they could have had better prizes, but did not really have anything they could have changed other than things about themselves, like maybe smiling or communicating more. Nick Kenzy said, “Go above and beyond and be brave.”
Some people had some ideas that would be nice to add sometime. “I think having a petting zoo would be a great investment for Fun Friday,” Cruz Klundt explained. They thought having better candy or prizes would make it better in the years to come.
Ending the Fall Fun Friday, the six graders will be planning to have a Winter Carnival in January. They hope to get the local businesses to help and participate in the carnival. After that, they plan on a Spring Fun Friday.
