     The end of the year party is an event for students as a celebration for all their hard work throughout the year.
     Students get to go to the gym for about an hour and 30 minutes of fun and games and everything is free. There are lots of fun games and activities for students to enjoy with their friends.
Originally scheduled for May 17, the event was moved to Thursday, May 24.
     “We will have inflatable obstacles courses, a DJ, ice cream sandwiches, and some fun Minute-to-Win-It type games,” Meaghan Davis said.
     The school has been doing this party for about five years and students must earn the chance to go by showing good work and effort and must try their best on their school work.
     “Students must show effort and good behavior during all testing,“ Davis said. “They must also be passing their classes and have good behavior to go to the party.”
     Some students can tend to be shy and don’t talk much with others so some think this could be a good event to go and talk to others.
     “I look forward to it because I think it’s something that can help people break out of their comfort zone,” seventh grader Elisabeth Mizell said.
     The school plans to continue this event the years following.
     “This is a fun event every year and we always have a great time, “ Mrs. Davis said. “We look forward to seeing you all there.”
