Paonia Elementary had a wonderful turnout for their chili supper, student performances and kiss the pig contest. Student art was on display in the hallways.
A used book sale was also held. The March 30 multi-faceted event was to raise funds for the school.
Paul Beller served as emcee for the events held inside the cafeteria. There was plenty of square dancing from the students led by teachers Sue Everest and Debra Lang. Coach Merrily Talbott introduced her Destination Imagination team which placed fifth at the Destination Imagination Tournament in March. Their task was to create a movie trailer with a cinematic special effect, write an original soundtrack and include two cultures. All was done without help from an adult.
Fourth graders have been studying Colorado history and presented their original song tributes. One dance number was choreographed by Katya Schwieterman.
After the chili supper and student performances, everyone filed out to the front lawn to watch principal Figenser carefully kiss a large black and white pig. As part of the fundraiser, he even wore a dress.blog comments powered by Disqus
