AA LPT Halloween Hootenanny a Success
Emma W., Cole D., and Abby D. steel themselves to find the gummy worm . . .
The Amelia Academy League of Parents and Teachers (LPT) held their first annual halloween hootenanny on Saturday, October 28th. Admission to the event was open to Academy families and staff and the "cost" was a can of food for the local food bank. A silent auction for several gift baskets was held during the event as a fundraiser for upcoming LPT activities. The event featured a maze of games, face painting, a gypsy fortune teller, and the ninth-grade class sold hot dogs popcorn. After the event was complete, there was a dance to cap off the evening. The event was a resounding success; everyone seemed to have a great time! Janet Pembleton said, "Everybody had a real ball!" The LPT expresses thanks to everyone who participated or donated canned goods, time, or decorations. Coach Morris allowed us to use his entire closet of decorations for the dance, and donated several bales of straw. Thanks, Coach!
Mrs. Berry was our official face-painter!
