In addition, food, water and snack stations were available during the event.

PTO Vice President Julie Austin, shared that the PTO sponsored the event, and that parent volunteers helped with the stations.

“Fundraisers throughout the year made the event possible. The kids love the event every year, and we enjoy doing it,” said Austin.

She shared that Michelle Persinger, PTO secretary was the Chairperson for the event.

“She worked really hard to organize the event this year, and it turned out great,” expressed Austin.

Austin reported that Hillbilly Fun, a company out of Summersville, WV, provided the entertainment for this year’s day of fun.

Inside the school, the students had popcorn and watched a magic show in the library. Jacob Culp, of Grafton, provided the show for the students.
