“The Cat in the Hat”, Debra Stanton added an air of excitement as she slipped around during the occasion.
Open House 2011 held on August 18 was well attended. The Spring Dipper’s ice cream attracted a lot of attention. Foundation directors served hot dogs, chips, pickles, and drinks and got to enjoy greeting many parents and children. It is great to see the children excited to show their parents, grandparents, and other relatives their rooms and to meet their teachers. Open House is a very special time for the directors as we get to see the students’ success. Since our food and drink were either donated or sold to us at a reduced cost we were able to sell at a very moderate cost of $2.00 per person. With donations and our percentage from the Spring Dipper we were able to add $840.00 to our Special Projects fund.
Our Special Projects this year are to replace the 40 year old stage curtains at the High School, which are expected to cost about $10,000, and to purchase large projection screens for the high school gym. The screen has already been purchased and installed in the Multi-Purpose room. In fact, pictures of last year’s grant recipients and projects completed were set up and run during Open House. Thank you Mr. Allen, High School Principal, and Debra Wright, High School Business Teacher, for setting up the pictures to run continuously during Open House.
There was always a long line for the Spring Dipper!
