WTES students treated with fun in the sun during school’s annual Fun Day

FLEMINGTON—West Taylor Elementary School celebrated the end of the school year with a fun day to reward students.

The school hosted its annual End-of-the-Year Fun Day, on Monday. The all-day event featured bounce houses, water inflatables, dancing, bubbles, a magic show, an obstacle course and much more.

Throughout the day, students rotated between 16 different stations that were placed inside and outside of the school. 

Chairperson for the event Michelle Persinger shared that the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) pays for and organizes the event each year.

“The kids absolutely love it. They have worked hard all year, and this is a way to reward them for all of that work,” said Persinger.

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

Inside the school, students watched a magic show in the library, performed by Jacob Culp, of Grafton.

“He is really good with the students. The students were really amazed by the magic show,” expressed Persinger.

In the gymnasium, students tested their skills with an obstacle course and an inflatable maze.

Principal Jamison Fisher shared that they are very fortune to have a wonderful PTO and Persinger planning the event.

To make the event a success Fisher shared that there was a lot of planning and organizing behind the scenes. Throughout the day, approximately 50 parent volunteers came out to the school to help with the event.

“We couldn’t do it without Michelle, the PTO and all of the parent volunteers,” expressed Fisher. “Today the students and teachers celebrate the 2017-2018 school year and look forward to next year.”
