Julian Curtiss Family Fun Day Features BBQ, Games and a Fashion Show

Julian Curtiss School held its first annual Family Fun Day in celebration of welcoming new and old families back to school.

All JC families were invited to attend the social gathering and fundraiser, which took place on Saturday, October 11.  “It’s great to have the entire school community come together to enjoy one another’s company and to raise money for the school at the same time, “ commented Principal Trish McGuire.”If happiness and fun was the measure of success, then we tipped the scale on this day!”

While JC Dads were grilling hot dogs on the barbeques, other parent and older sibling volunteers sold homemade chili, baked goods, and other food generously donated by local vendors.  The students were busy dancing to the DJ, having their faces painted by their art teacher, LeAnne Hinkle, playing soccer and bowling games for prizes, and much more.  One of the event highlights included a red carpet fashion show featuring JC students modeling brand new JC spiritwear.
