On January 27th, Richland students, staff and families joined us for ‘Family Fun Day,’ a community-building event in celebration of Winterfest and Family Literacy Day. The day began with a morning of free-skating and warming up with hot chocolate at Bond Lake Arena. Smiling (and tired) faces then returned to Richland for a special Family Pizza Lunch, followed by a unique art activity and fun literacy presentation. At the end of the day, we raffled off some local theatre tickets and announced the winner of our Book Drive Guessing Game, where each family had the chance to estimate the number of books we collected for our annual Book Drive.
Reflecting on the skating portion of the day, our SK class revisited their experience and collaboratively created a vision of what it meant to them:
“I felt like I was skating at a fair,” Annie shared.
