All year long, the members of the Kyle Elementary School have wanted to find ways to make life a little more “normal” for their fellow students in the midst of a global pandemic.
Friday, those fifth-grade student council members -- Brayden Bell, Kole Caplinger, Cecily Greene, Kinley Honeyman, Addison Morgan, Adam Packard, Jacob Pierce, and Arcadia Williams -- under the direction of council advisor and Kyle guidance counselor Dana Davis, presented a scaled-down, COVID-safe school carnival for all of Kyle’s students.
“At the beginning of the year, they voted to have a carnival to ‘give back’ to Kyle and have fun at the same time,” Davis said. “Our business partners generously donated items that we could use as fundraisers and we made 100-percent profit. Fundraisers included a jellybean raffle, lollipops and a bike raffle.
“Due to COVID, we weren't sure if we were going to be able to have a carnival, so we worked hard to come up with a plan to keep students in smaller groups and clean after each class. Student Council members voted on games to play and the prizes all students can win. Members got to participate themselves and then helped their student body with the games and prizes during the carnival.”
