News from St. Anthony Park Elementary
Thanks for the support
Organizers for the annual St. Anthony Park Elementary School Fall Festival are grateful for all of the community support that helped to make another successful event possible. New this year was a Pumpkin Fun Run for students before the festival started, and the children had a lot of fun, as well as a good dose of exercise.
Inside the school, families participated in activities, worked on crafts and enjoyed tasty treats. More than 150 items were up for bidding at the silent auction. The school appreciates all of the local businesses that supplied auction items.
The Fall Festival is one of the major fundraisers for the St. Anthony Park School Association, which raises money to support and enrich the education of elementary students. Thanks also to all who donated to SAPSA on Give to the Max day, which was Nov. 13.
Destination ImagiNation begins
Ten Destination ImagiNation teams have been organized for interested students in grades 3-5. Practice is underway as they prepare for competition in March. Thank you to teacher Nancy Hausman for organizing.
