West Bainbridge holds fall festival

The annual West Bainbridge Elementary Fall Festival was held Oct. 7 after school.

There was a hayride, a cake walk, games from A&S Rentals, and lots of food. The festival participants were also surprised by a special guest riding in on the fire truck, the famous Sparky!

Each grade level had to come up with something on their own to raffle off or sell at the festival. Each chance was sold for just $1.

Pre-Kindergarten chose to raffle off a scooter. Kindergarten made and sold cotton candy at the festival. First grade raffled off a chance to win an hour-long massage from Serenity Med Spa. If you like bounce houses for your birthday, you should have bought a chance from third grade. Dianne Ivey donated one of her paintings for the fourth grade to sell chances on. Because of the recent economic situation, the special support staff and enrichment teachers sold chances to win a $50 BP gas card. All of the winners were announced at school live on the morning news.

WBE wants to thank all of the faculty and staff for helping to make this Fall Festival a wonderful success!

There is one person though that went above and beyond and needs a special recognition. Natalie Howard made sure everyone had a good time, and was thus given the Spirit Award for doing such a great job.
