The Compass - - CLASSIFIED -

Ap­prox­i­mately 200 chil­dren and par­ents turned out at Davis El­e­men­tary Jan. 28 to help launch the Car­bon­ear school’s Fam­ily Fun Night.

The event opened with a game of Mu­si­cal Hoops as an ice­breaker.

A num­ber of sta­tions were set up around the school where par­ents and chil­dren took part in their favourite ac­tiv­i­ties.

Ses­sions in­cluded board and lit­er­acy games, Tum­ble books on a Smart­board, play­dough, pre-school and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties in the gym, speed stack­ing and Dance, Dance Revo­lu­tion.

“ There was some­thing for ev­ery­one and many ideas were gen­er­ated for up­com­ing events,” said Zoe Hamil­ton, phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion teacher at the school.

The next Fam­ily Fun Night is sched­uled for Fri­day, Feb. 25 when bul­ly­ing in­for­ma­tion ses­sions geared to­ward par­ents and chil­dren will be of­fered.

Sim­i­lar sta­tions will be set up with con­sid­er­a­tion given to in­put from par­ents dur­ing the last session. Fam­ily Fun Night is open to fam­i­lies of stu­dents at­tend­ing Davis El­e­men­tary along with older si­b­lings.

Ses­sions run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and chil­dren must be ac­com­pa­nied by a fam­ily mem­ber 18 years or older.

Point­ing out, “our first fam­i­lies had a lot of fun,” Hamil­ton said, “ we hope to see more at­tend. The op­por­tu­nity to meet new fam­ily friends through shared ex­pe­ri­ences can’t be missed.”
