Family Group Fun day was supposed to happen on March 21st on the half day, but has been postponed. Last year some family groups went to Lasertron, Horizon, Skyzone, and some chose their own experiences.
According to Family Group Coach Ms. Gross, “The point of family group fun day is to build school-wide camaraderie because there are not many opportunities to do that during the school day.” The whole purpose of family group is “for all to feel a sense of belonging through positive relationships, to develop healthy habits, and to empower all to have a voice.” A fun day is a great way to do this and have fun for more than 30 minutes.
Many teachers do not want to have to coordinate the trips like last year or have to pay for the students who don’t bring any money. This is a big reason why it was postponed. If these are the issues one solution would be to do some activities just staying here on campus. This would be a win-win for students who still want to do something and relax from all the stress of school and work this year, and teachers who don’t want to pay a small fortune and coordinate the whole thing.
With the next half day being in April, it’s likely we will have nicer weather, so doing activities outside like a barbeque, or a mini field day where family groups just go have fun outside and hang could work well. There could also be events inside school like a movie or two in the auditorium, video game tournaments, or sports tournaments in the gym which will also satisfy everyone’s needs and be a true win-win.
