First Annual Little Debbie's Fun Day
The First Annual Little Debbie’s Fun Day is next week. Our small schools’ pastor, Pastor Larry Unterseher, has organized an event for several small schools.
Attractions include a jump house, R/C cars, Go Carts, a Wild Cat Adventure presentation, 1/4 mile race, and a Hot Wheels race.
According to wildcatfund.org, the Wild Cat Adventure presentation “features 5 live wild cats. The cats currently appearing...include a cougar, cheetah, serval, ocelot, fishing cat, black leopard cub and Geoffroy’s cat….Natural behaviors like climbing, leaping, and hunting are demonstrated in a safe and exciting manner.” (Para 2) http://www.wildcatfund.org/school.html
The Go Carts are from Leoni Meadows. Students who were here a few years back will remember them from the Feather River Fun Day. You can see a picture at http://leonimeadows.org/
The Hot Wheels Race is similar to a Pinewood Derby, except that you can’t make or modify your car. Each student is registered to race one car. That car can be a Hot Wheels or Matchbox car. They cost about one dollar. There are more specifics on the race below.
On a different note:
The visiting committee for our accreditation showed up on Wednesday last week. They were very pleased. One comment I heard several times was, “These students are really motivated to learn.”
You can be proud of your kids!
